Q) How far can i go on a charge?
This is the
most asked question regarding electric vehicles. Tesla has the greatest
range of any electric vehicle on the market today. Our Model S sedans
are rated at 426km per charge and the Model X is rated at 413km per
charge- more than enough for most day trips in the valley. Should you
need to super charge or top up, the Okanagan valley has plenty of
options for you. Check them out here.
Q) What can I expect driving a Tesla?
Tesla vehicles are designed from the ground up to be the safest, most
exhilarating vehicles on the road. With unparalleled performance
delivered through Tesla's unique, all-electric powertrain, the Model S
accelerates from 0 to 100 kph in as little as 2.7 seconds and the Model X
is the worlds quickest accelerating SUV. The Okanagan Valley provides
the ideal setting in all seasons to take advantage of the amazing
performance of Tesla vehicles.
Q) What about insurance?
A) The majority of optional insurance policies on the market (credit card, ICBC etc) will NOT cover luxury
vehicle rentals. You can phone your insurance provider to supplement
your own insurance to cover a luxury vehicle, or Power Trips offers an
optional partial damage waiver for a minimal fee to make sure you are
completely protected. All renters MUST be 25 years of age or older and
hold a valid drivers license. Note: Proof of supplementary insurance
Q) How do I charge the car?
you embark on your adventure, a Power Trips representative will guide
you through the charging process and make sure you are comfortable and
answer any questions you may have. For an overview of Tesla charging

Q) Where can I charge my Tesla in the Okanagan Valley?
The Okanagan Valley has a very high concentration of electric vehicle
charging stations and you are provided with adapters to take advantage
of all of them. The best locations to charge are at Tesla destination
charging locations that are located at numerous hotels, restaurants and
other businesses throughout the area. For the fastest charge out there,
the Kelowna Supercharger is available to you free of charge and will
get you back on the road in no time. Charging locations can be found here or by selecting from the navigation menu on the touchscreen in the car. PlugShare is a great free mobile App we use that shows even more charging locations.
Q) Can my pet ride in the car with me?
furry friends are not allowed in our luxury vehicles. Any dirt or
damage caused by a pet in the vehicle will be billed to you accordingly.
Q) What if I want to keep the car longer than initially booked?
You need to return the vehicle at the date and time specified in your
rental agreement. Late fees apply for late returns. If you need the
vehicle for a longer period, please check with us first as the vehicle
may be booked for another consumer. Of course, we will accommodate your
schedule whenever we can, but confirmation and an updated rental
agreement is required from Power Trips to keep the vehicle longer.
Q) Do I need to bring the car back fully charged?
All we ask is that you return the car to us with a battery level above 50%. We will take care of the rest.
