If you need to hire an electric car in London, for business or pleasure, you might as well go for an option that you may never be able to own yourself. A vehicle that exudes style, sophistication, a high-tech specification, performance that outweighs its competition and is eco-friendly to boot.
Of course, we’re talking about a Tesla. But what’s so special about them and why all the hype?
Speed and range
Of all the electric cars on the market, and there are quite a few these days, Tesla models stand out from the crowd because of their speed and range. With a range heading towards three hundred miles on most models, depending on your driving style, there’s no longer the need to worry about planning your route solely around charging points. And with a nought to sixty of just a little over four seconds, and a top speed of just over one hundred and fifty miles per hour, they’re nifty things too.
Inside and out Tesla cars are a glorious feat of design engineering. Having been designed as an electric vehicle from the ground up, their creators were able to work the battery and powertrain into the design, rather than having to squeeze them into the space previously occupied by the fuel tank. This has allowed the design team to create a sleek, sporty exterior.
Inside, nothing has been spared when it comes to creating a sophisticated and comfortable interior. A HEPA air filtration system of medical grade ensures that the air inside the car is clean and pollution free while heated seats and ambient lighting throughout the cabin add to the luxurious feel. While outside, its sleek design is complemented by the practical Falcon Wing doors which allow easy access to the vehicle and have become synonymous with the brand.
Tesla cars incorporate a whole host of unique and innovative features that make them stand out from the crowd and the range of on-board technology features doesn’t disappoint either. A whopping seventeen-inch touchscreen controls the majority of the car’s functions, from changing radio stations to controlling the air conditioning and personalising the driving position to synchronising your calendar, they can all happen with a simple touch or swipe.
But all that sounds pretty standard for a high-end car nowadays doesn’t it? Well, how about autonomous driving and wireless system updates? Now, that’s not something you see in every electric hire car is it? Forget cruise control, these cars have the ability to regulate their own speed, switch lanes and even park autonomously. Couple that with voice-activated controls and you really have got an all singing, all dancing vehicle.
So, there’s little else to say really is there? It’s clear that a Tesla stands head and shoulders above other electric hire car options and if you get the opportunity to try one you really should. Its an experience that you’re likely never to forget and wherever your destination, you’re guaranteed to arrive in style.
