Tesloop's fleet is composed exclusively of Tesla vehicles. Their combination of pure electric power, Autopilot functionality, and extended range together have created a transportation platform with unprecedented safety, disruptive economics, and zero emissions.
Tesla's commitment to developing and refining the technologies to enable self-driving capability is a core part of their mission. Vehicles built since October 2014 are equipped with hardware to allow for the incremental introduction of self-driving technology: a forward radar, a forward-looking camera, 12 long-range ultrasonic sensors positioned to sense 16 feet around the car in every direction at all speeds, and a high-precision digitally-controlled electric assist braking system.
Tesla's software, released in October 2015 (version 7.0) and further improved in January 2016 (version 7.1) allows the vehicle to both steer itself and perform acceleration and braking on highway scenarios.
This combined suite of features represents the only fully integrated autopilot system involving four different feedback modules: camera, radar, ultrasonics, and GPS. These mutually-reinforcing systems offer real-time data feedback from the Tesla fleet, ensuring that the system is continually learning and improving upon itself. Autopilot allows Model S to steer within a lane, change lanes with the simple tap of a turn signal, and manage speed by using active, traffic-aware cruise control. Digital control of motors, brakes, and steering helps avoid collisions from the front and sides, as well as preventing the car from wandering off the road.
Tesla Autopilot relieves drivers of the most tedious and potentially dangerous aspects of road travel.
While truly driverless cars are still a few years away, Tesla Autopilot functions like the systems that airplane pilots use when conditions are clear. The driver is still responsible for, and ultimately in control of, the car.
Meet the ModeL 3
Model 3 takes advantage of all the groundbreaking engineering and design that Tesla has worked on for over 11 years. Model 3 is a mid-size sedan capable of carrying up to 5 passengers, and offering the latest technology and safety features.
Two of our favorite Model 3 features include Tesla’s new proprietary computer chip, capable of processing 10x more information than before. Model 3 is also designed to make charging quicker than ever by pre-conditioning the battery before arriving to a supercharger, and being capable of 250kW charging speeds. This means you can get over 200 miles in just 30 minutes at V3 superchargers. Model 3 can accelerate from 0-60 in just over 4 seconds, and has a low center of gravity and suspension components that results in an incredible driving experience — if you choose to drive yourself.
Meet the Model X
Our fleet consists of 6 Tesla Model X's. Model X is the safest, quickest, and most capable sport utility vehicle in history. Designed as a family car without compromise, Model X comes standard with all-wheel drive, ample seating for up to six adults, standard active safety features, and up to 245 miles of range on a single charge. And it's the quickest SUV in production, capable of accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds.
Every Model X comes standard with the most advanced active safety features, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Side Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Autopilot driver assistance capabilities and more. And Model X gets better over time with over-the-air software updates designed to optimize its advanced sensor technology. Falcon Wing doors enhance accessibility to the second and third rows, and are capable of opening in even the tightest parking spaces. Model X has the most storage room of any sport utility vehicle in its class, and seat configuration options designed to maximize passenger comfort for up to six adults.
Meet the Model S
Built from the ground up to be 100 percent electric, the Tesla Model S has redefined the very concept of a four-door car. The Tesloop configuration of the 85D seats 4 passengers comfortably and has more than 64 cubic feet of storage. Beyond practical, the 85D is a powerhouse, with 422 horsepower and 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds.
Dual Motor Model S is a categorical improvement on conventional all-wheel drive systems. With two motors, one in the front and one in the rear, Model S digitally and independently controls torque to the front and rear wheels. The result is unparalleled traction control in all conditions.
At highway speeds, the Model S’s active air suspension lowers the car, resulting in a more comforting ride and better range produced by an increase in aerodynamics. The cabin noise in the car is reduced due to the air suspension’s softer ride and frictionless driving, compared to regular shocks and coils that emit noise.
Autopilot combines a forward looking camera, radar, and 360 degree sonar sensors with real time traffic updates to automatically drive Model S on the open road and in dense stop and go traffic. Standard equipment safety features are constantly monitoring stop signs, traffic signals and pedestrians, as well as for unintentional lane changes.
A low center of gravity enables outstanding road holding and handling while driving 270 miles per charge. In 2013, the Model S achieved a combined score safety rating of 5.4 from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, making it the safest car on the road.
