Driving change with Tesla

19 Jul 2017

teslaNeed a sustainable set of wheels for your next trip? UQ's Pool Fleet now has a zero-emissions Tesla Model S sedan available for hire! This fully electric vehicle offers a range of benefits to UQ staff while also providing key data for researchers.   

The Tesla Model S is available to any UQ staff member with an open licence, and its flat full or part day rental fee—while slightly higher than other Fleet vehicles—is all inclusive, with no per-km charge for fuel and maintenance. 

First-time Tesla users will be given an induction by Fleet Services staff so they can become familiar with the vehicle's features prior to driving it.

Other benefits of choosing a Tesla for your next trip include:

  • zero-emissions travel that could save UQ over 2000 litres of fuel and 5000 kg of carbon emissions annually compared to a similar-sized petrol sedan
  • high-tech features that make the Model S one of the safest vehicles in the world
  • key data for researchers studying the application of this exciting emerging technology.

Help drive change and get behind the wheel of the Model S. For more information, visit the Fleet Services page.
