2015 Tesla Model S Test-Drive Program Swings Into High Gear

PALO ALTO, California — Car shoppers interested in a test-drive of the 2015 Tesla Model S electric sedan can take advantage of a number of upcoming programs throughout the U.S.

Drive demonstration appointments are now being scheduled in several U.S. cities, including Austin, Texas and Washington, D.C. A complete list of locations can be found here.

The Austin program takes place April 16-17 at the Hotel Ella. An April 16 event in Lexington, Kentucky will be held at Tesla's Lexington Supercharger location. The Washington, D.C. program runs April 25-26 at the Mandarin Oriental hotel.

The program ends on May 28 in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Since Tesla Motors does not have traditional dealerships, the drive programs take place in various locations, including Tesla Supercharger sites and local hotels.

Tesla said the driving sessions are 15 minutes long over a predetermined route "designed to highlight the capabilities of Model S."

A Tesla product specialist will accompany all drivers. Up to three guests can ride in the backseat during the drive.

Appointments require reservations and will be confirmed by a California Tesla representative. Test-drive appointments can also be scheduled at Tesla Stores.

Competitors to the Model S include the BMW i8 and Cadillac ELR.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers can get behind the wheel of the Tesla Model S, courtesy of these new drive programs.
