Wanting To Do A Test Drive

They do remote test drives in some locations. For instance they do test drives in Napa, CA while the nearest showroom is about 30 min away. They drop cars off at a resort as needed.

Assuming you would be going to Henrietta showroom? If you go to book a test drive online are there any other drop down selections for location? Website doesn’t seem to be working for me right now regarding scheduling a test drive.

They've got a Model Y with California plates parked at that supercharger... I think they'll be back to offer more test drives. They said they were from the Rochester location. I recommend calling them to see if they'll be back. Although I do believe the test drives were only about a half hour each, it'd be a good opportunity without taking the longer drive to Rochester.

Website is working for reservations now and it looks like you can select between Henrietta and 3 locations in and around Toronto. Seems like you should call Henrietta and ask about scheduling a test drive at the supercharger near you since they would likely be the ones organizing it.

I mentioned Toronto earlier in the thread. It was actually in Niagara Falls (Ontario) for a few days at the end of February. The problem is: The border is still closed for anything other than business and essential travel. The US is MILES ahead of Canada for vaccines. I suspect it will be closed until June.

Toronto isn’t an option. The border is closed to anything but truck shipping traffic.

Figured as much but Tesla shows it as an option when you select the Henrietta show room as a test drive site.

Did you call Henrietta and ask about test driving in your area?

I had to go to Rochester this weekend (COVID vaccination for a family member), so I had a chance to find the Tesla service center and check the area out. I was surprised the center was as small as it was, but learned a bit of what the area was like. I also checked the website and found that the further out you go out with scheduling a test drive, the longer time you can schedule. I’m in the process of getting financing and finances in order before scheduling the drive, because as others have said, I know after the drive I’ll want to get it as soon as possible, and I’m not prepared to do that right now. But thanks for all the advice, it helps greatly.

But you can also test drive right now, put your $100 order fee in and delay delivery until you get finances in order as long as it is within 6 months from order date. Potentially could get you matched to a vehicle much sooner.
