Tesla Model S Test Drive Event
Wednesday, December 16 from 10am – 6pm

Tesla Test Drive event at The Wilshire Grand


What does it feel like to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds without a drop of gasoline? You’re
about to find out. The Wilshire Grand Hotel would like to extend you the exclusive opportunity to test
drive the award winning Model S.

Tesla Model S Facts:
Highest safety rating in America
Autopilot equipped
Available All-Wheel Drive Dual Motor

Tesla's advanced electric powertrain is unique. Unlike a gasoline internal combustion engine with hundreds of moving parts, the Tesla has only one moving piece: the rotor.  

Autopilot allows Model S to steer within a lane, change lanes with the simple tap of a turn signal, and manage speed by using active, traffic-aware cruise control. Digital control of motors, brakes, and steering helps avoid collisions from the front and sides, as well as preventing the car from wandering off the road. Model S can also scan for a parking space, alert you when one is available, and parallel park on command.  

The Model S interior sound sound dynamics are likened to a recording studio and features a 17 inch touchscreen, angled toward the driver with day and night modes for increased visibility. 

Ready to try one out? Join us for this limited Tesla Model S test drive opportunity. For more information,visit the event page
