Tesloop, a Tesla fleet carsharing company, and Ridecell Inc., a platform provider for shared mobility operators, will be launching a one-way Tesla carsharing service between Los Angeles and Las Vegas on Dec. 1.
Currently, Tesloop operates a one-way carsharing service between Los Angeles and San Diego.
The Tesloop fleet consists of Tesla Model X, Model S, and Model 3 cars equipped with the Autopilot feature. After submitting a rental request online and once approved, a Tesloop concierge assists customers in completing the booking and providing the rental itinerary.
"You don't have to own a Tesla to experience one with Tesloop's affordable, flexible, and convenient alternative to planes, trains, and personal automobiles when traveling between regional cities," said Haydn Sonnad, founder of Tesloop. "Customers can reserve their Tesla and enjoy the driving experience with Tesla's autopilot feature and advanced entertainment system. Once they arrive, they can drop off the car without worrying about recharging or daily rental costs."
The Ridecell Fleet Ops platform manages fleet tasks, including charging needs, maintenance, cleaning, and dispatching the cars for pick-up. Having predictive analytics on drive times, customer patterns, maintenance of the fleet, and worker dispatch helps Tesloop maintain its customer service, according to the company.
"The world is demanding better ways to move in economical and environmentally-sound ways that don't sacrifice a quality experience," said Aarjav Trivedi, CEO of Ridecell. "With Ridecell Fleet Ops, we are able to automate fleet tasks and labor management, speeding the time it takes to service a vehicle from hours to minutes. We are happy to partner with companies like Tesloop to deliver mobility with exceptional, trusted, and reliable vehicles that keep customers coming back."
Tesloop rentals between Los Angeles and Las Vegas average $99 per one-way rental. If customers share the ride with colleagues or friends, the price can be as low as $20 per person.
