Tesla Model 3 Available for Rent in Florida and The Price is High
Today it costs 166 dollars per day to rent a Tesla Model 3 in Florida. Interestingly, a preferential treatment is given to Tesla Model 3 reservation holders.
A current Model 3 owner in Lehigh Acres, FL has listed his Model 3on a car rental marketplace Turo. Despite its high price of 166 dollars per day the car is not is listed on Turo as "disabled." According to Turo this means that the car is not available for an extended or unknown period of time.
To me this is not surprising. Out of nearly half a million Model 3 reservation holders how many would pay a $166 per day to test drive a car for which they have put forward a prepayment for the car that is just now entering the production. In fact, at some point it was not uncommon where Tesla Model 3 owners, tired of waiting and tempted by the lower prices of Model S would turn in their Model 3 reservation for a Model S.
This rental option could give thousands of Model 3 reservation holders an opportunity to test and see what their new EV could possibly be and feel like.
Here is the description of this Model 3 rental.
I will be temporarily renting out my Tesla Model 3 prior to moving to another city. I wanted to give a luxury experience with my vehicle to prospective clients who have placed their reservation for the Tesla Model 3 and give them an idea of what their vehicle could possibly be. 0-60 MPH in 5.1. Range per charge is 310 Miles. Vehicle has been delivered recently and has ceramic coated with gun metal wheels and chrome delete. 3M tinted windows for less heat penetration as the summer months in Florida are pretty brutal. Full panorama glass window for the best lighting experience paired with ambient lighting on the interior for dimmed night display. I would like responsible customers using my vehicle in the meantime while enjoying a rare chance at taking home the Model 3. Please also understand that AutoPilot is not activated at this time to reduce any errors while driving as we all still maintain a Class E license and self driving is not yet available. Orientation of vehicle is also available. I am certain you will enjoy it!
The owner also writes that "as a safe guard, vehicle performance will be monitored so no excessive speeding is happening. I would also appreciate parking away from other vehicle and watching for curbs. I love pets but for the sake of other users who may suffer from allergies, pets are not allowed. No smoking, food in vehicle also. This is an opportunity to see what the next wave of vehicles are prior to receiving your Model 3 :). Also no need to wash the vehicle."
Some early Tesla Model 3 owners were quick to learn how to make money from their Model 3. Tesla recently fired Model 3 plant workers apparently being frustrated by slow production, but according to Fortune the production problems of the Model 3 were tied to suppliers.
