    I know it might be better to post this question in a more general forum, however I decided to make it here in case there is any difference in leasing terms of Model S and of Model X.

    I am one of the earliest owner who will take delivery on Model X 75D (my configuration of 70D was confirmed in Nov. 2015), I plan to rent it out through Turo to let more people know about this car, as well as make some extra $$ by taking advantage of low availability of this car in teh beginning.

    Is it OK to rent the car out if I l leased it ? I did call Tesla and I was told "I don't see why not, it's your car even leased." by a rep, but I didn't think whoever told me that was creditable enough.

    Turo's explanation on this question:
    Is it OK to rent out my car if I'm leasing it?

    I would read your lease like the Turo link suggested. If you don't have paperwork yet see it Tesla can send it to you.

    Tesla doesn't care. Make sure your insurance fully covers you; that's the question.

    Does the insurance typically cover the owner if they are offering the car on a rental platform?

    If it's a leased car, you also have mileage restrictions. I could put 1000 miles in two days on a leased Model X easily.

    And the true arbiter is going to be your insurance company. You better have a low deductible, bullet-proof policy.

    Would love to know if its financially feasible once you factor in all costs. :)
