Hittin’ The Road In Tesla’s In Coachella

They’ll be riding in style in Coachella.

The City of Coachella will be spending more than 1 million tax dollars from California taxpayers, allocated to the city through State of CA grants, to buy 17 Tesla’s costing more than 60-thousand dollars each.

The City will offer them for use as rideshare vehicles through the Latino Equity Advocacy Program or LEAP.

You could catch a ride to school or the doctor’s office, or even a job interview.

It’ll all be available through an app in 2024.


BEIJING, CHINA – OCTOBER 23: (CHINA OUT) Elon Musk, Chairman, CEO and Product Architect of Tesla Motors, addresses a press conference to declare that the Tesla Motors releases v7.0 System in China on a limited basis for its Model S, which will enable self-driving features such as Autosteer for a select group of beta testers on October 23, 2015 in Beijing, China. The v7.0 system includes Autosteer, a new Autopilot feature. While it’s not absolutely self-driving and the driver still need to hold the steering wheel and be mindful of road conditions and surrounding traffic when using Autosteer. When set to the new Autosteer mode, graphics on the driver’s display will show the path the Model S is following, post the current speed limit and indicate if a car is in front of the Tesla.
