The Tesla Model Y is fully electric and the premium vehicle of our MILES fleet. You can book our Tesla if you are

- not a Rookie.
You fulfill these requirements? Then this is how you hit the road with our Tesla Model Y:
Step 1: Unlock doors
- Open the door by pressing the wider part of the handle inward with your thumb & at the same time grasping the narrower part of the handle. Then pull the handle outward as usual.
- Briefly check that the vehicle is clean and ready to be used once you got in. Please flag any major soiling to our support.
- Note: From the inside, you open the doors either via the respective handle at the front end of the armrest, or by pressing the button as shown here in the photo:
Step 2: Adjust mirrors, lights & steering wheel
- Take your time to adjust the seat, steering wheel, and mirrors properly before you drive off.
- The seats can be adjusted as usual via buttons and handles around it.
- The settings for mirrors and light have to be activated via the touchscreen.
- Tap on the car icon in the bottom left corner of the screen and choose the category "vehicle" right at the top of the list.
- Select the desired option and follow the instructions.
- The headlights settings can be adjusted under the category "lighting".
Step 3: Start driving
- Press and hold the brake pedal & select the desired driving mode via the gear selector: Push it down for forward gear 'D' and up for reverse gear 'R'.

Good to know
Hazard warning lights:
- The hazard warning lights are located at the top of the ceiling in front of the rearview mirror:
- You can access the wiper settings from the main Controls on the touchscreen to adjust the speed of the wipers.
