Driving Tesla, along with various smart features, is indeed a great fun; however, it can cause you enough trouble if you fail to fulfill the formalities.
In a recently shared incident, a Tesla left its owner stranded when he forgot to bring the car keys.
Ryan Negri, a Tesla car owner, left his home to take some photos of the snow. Thought would be a quick drive, he left the keys at home and open the car with his phone.
Having gone 6 miles down the road, he got out of the car and found that there is no cell connection in the area. He tried to start the car again but in vain, as the car needed internet connection to facilitate his phone and activate the unlocking feature.
His wife had to run two miles in the stranded land to catch mobile connection to make a call to someone so that she could bring the keys from home.
It was not a good experience that Negri had, though all other owners learnt from it.
The keyless feature of the company can be trusted but it is very much wise not to ignore backup plans, as your fun drive can get nasty.
In a tweet, Negri suggested that Tesla should come up with any contingency plan that can be exercised in case of such incidents.
For general information, Tesla cars require internet connectivity on your cell phone for unlocking cars remotely.
Tesla is believed to have always responded to public outcry, specifically when it is about the company’s improvement. This fault too must alert the concerned.
