It is here. You have long asked us if we plan to add a special amazing car to the fleet that will evoke emotions and you will really enjoy it. Thanks to the cooperation with the beginning carsharing Share-Me, we can be the first carsharing in the Czech Republic to offer you a shared electric car of the Tesla brand, specifically the Model S. Tesla will be put into operation at the beginning of March.
This is the first shared Tesla in self-service carsharing mode.
We expect, you are definitely interested in all the details that will apply to this speciality. Come and find out how it will all work and under what conditions Tesla can be used.
Autonapůl and Share-Me offer the first Tesla in shared mode in the Czech Republic.
Parking zone and introductory training
Shared Tesla is currently only available in Brno. Just as you are used to from our other electric cars, it has a fixed parking space at the charger so that it is always ready to go with you on the road. The location is still under negotiation and we will let you know in time where Tesla will stand.
The use of Tesla has slightly different rules from ordinary Autonapůl vehicles. So how does it all work? The Tesla Model S Elon, now marked “DEMO” or test vehicle, can now be seen in the reservation system. This is just an imaginary vehicle that does not physically stand on the street, but you can use it to make a reservation and express your interest in sharing Tesla.
After you make a reservation for a Tesla Elon demo, our partners from Share Me company will contact you. They will arrange with you an introductory training for the use of Tesla and explain to you all the specifics that accompany the ride in Tesla. For example, shifting is under the steering wheel, everything on the vehicle is controlled by a large touch screen, explain the method and options of charging, and the vehicle is handed over to you.
Introductory training is a necessary condition for the possibility of using Tesla.
After the introductory training, you will get access to a group in the reservation system designed for Tesla, where you will already find a real vehicle. You only need to complete the initial training once, then you can use Tesla just like all our other vehicles – that is, self-service and contactless pick-up and return via the Autonapůl application (Android / iOS).
Be careful, like Renault Zoe and Mégane, Tesla does not support the chip card and pick-up and return of it is only possible through our application.
We are sure you’re excited now, but you’re also asking – how much will this fun cost me? Tesla will have a separate category in our price list. Although it is an electric car, due to its very high purchase price and cooperation with Share Me carsharing, Tesla has a separate category called “Tesla”. Charging is of course included in the price of the reservation, as is the fuel for other cars in the Autonapůl fleet.
|Reservation (hour)||Max CZK/day||Travelled distance (km)|
|CZK 303||CZK 3030||CZK 8,30|
Invoicing will be as usual, you pay for rides in the past month. The important information is that our “Jistota Plus” additional insurance does not apply to rides in Tesla. Even so, Tesla has favorable conditions of insurance, which you are used to from us from Standard insurance.
You do not pay anything for an unintentional accident – we charge all the costs to the culprit’s insurance company.
If you cause the accident, the rule of 25% for damage over CZK 8,000 applies, but a maximum of CZK 40,000. The calculated co-payment will be added to your next invoice.
A few examples:
If you cause damage CZK 3,000, your co-payment is CZK 3,000.
If the damage is CZK 10,000, your co-payment is CZK 8,500. If the damage is CZK 100,000, your co-participation is CZK 31,000.
If the damage is CZK 200,000, your co-participation is CZK 40,000.
Some information about the shared Tesle Model S P85 + Elon
It is a Model S with the designation P85 + from 2014. Together with Share Me, we named Tesla a symbolic name, Elon. Until the arrival of the dual version marked D, it was the most powerful version on offer. It has an output of 310 kW, weighs 2,145 kilograms and accelerates from zero to one hundred in 4 seconds.
The Elon has a wide range of equipment, which includes heating of all seats in the vehicle, leather interior, internet connection, large touch screen on the center console, multifunction steering wheel, spacious luggage compartment at the rear and smaller storage space at the front under the hood.
You will also appreciate the high-quality sound system and sound system on the go. We must not forget the panoramic roof and navigation and parking sensors.
Unfortunately, Elon does not enable the Autopilot function – in all situations it is necessary to pay full attention to driving.
Range and recharging
Tesla will travel safely around 250 kilometers on a single charge in degraded conditions (winter, highway conditions). In ideal conditions, the range may increase slightly, but it is better to take the above value into account. You will find a chip in the vehicle for the ČEZ and E.on charging stations, or it can also be charged at Tesla Superchargers, which you will find in Brno near Olympia.
All charging is free for Autonapůl users – included in the price of the reservation.
Charging tips are also offered by an application created by the drivers of electric cars themselves using the Mapotic service. The authors are Bára Drbohlavová and David Vávra. You can find more about the application in this article (CZ).
Approximate charging times are as follows – AC charging time – approx. 2 hours and 15 minutes, DC charging time – about 1 hour and 14 minutes, the supercharger can charge Tesla significantly faster, about 45 minutes. More information on charging and travel will be provided by Share Me carsharing partners during the introductory training.
A little more about Tesla
Tesla Inc. is an American automaker and energy company based in Palo Alto, California, in the Silicon Valley. Its CEO is the visionary entrepreneur Elon Musk. In addition to his enthusiasm for electromobility, he is also known for his space flights or the installation of Starlink space satellites through his space company SpaceX.
Tesla is just one of his many incredible projects. It began production of its first Tesla Roadster electric car in 2008. It currently offers a luxury Model S sedan, a Model X electric SUV and a more affordable Model 3.
Tesla also came up with its own charging solution and in 2012 introduced the first “superchargers“. These are fast DC chargers that will now offer charging power of up to 150 kW in Europe as well.
In the Czech Republic, you can find them mainly near larger cities – in Brno, Humpolec, Olomouc and Vestec near Prague. However, their number is not final and at the moment other superchargers are already being prepared in Prague, České Budějovice and Pilsen.
