Welcome to the Tesla Model-S electric car!
The black Tesla-shaped fob remote gives you access and use of the car. You do not need to press it. When you leave, be sure to take the fob with you!
Remember the car is VERY quiet, so be aware that pedestrians may not hear you.
Please - no joy rides! The Tesla GPS tracks all driving, so please just park the car. Thanks!
