10 Hot Tesla Date Ideas
We have to admit we had a little help from our partners here! The EVehiclePro team asked what the best Tesla dates would look like, and we were overwhelmed with some great ideas! Now we are sharing the love with our readers!
Note: If you don’t have a special person to take on a sexy date yet, jump on the Tesla Dating app for Tesla owners!. Then try out some of these Tesla date ideas and, if it works out, email us and let us know! Maybe our team will take a road trip to the wedding!
Here are our top 10 picks for the hottest Tesla dates!
1. Picnic in the trunk.
Pack a picnic basket lunch with fresh fruit, cheese, crackers and wine (if you have those gorgeous white vegan leather seats, we recommend white wine!). Store food in the frunk to prevent odours from wafting in the vehicle. Back into a spot with a gorgeous view of mountains, lakes or trees (or the city skyline), put down the back seats, spread out a picnic blanket and cuddle up while enjoying some nibbles and romance!
2. Take your date on a day trip to a local winery.
Set the mood for this romantic vineyard adventure with scents of red wine from Temai’s essential oil air vent diffuser. Our favourite vineyard scent has blends of tangy black current, rose and wood. Stream a smooth jazz playlist for this hot and sophisticated date and finish off the evening with some ice wine and white chocolate in front of a virtual crackling fire.
3. Watch the sunset together.
Plan to arrive 30 minutes before the sun sets to get the best show. Recline in the front seats or pop down the back seats and cuddle up with cosy pillows and a blanket.
Have your camera ready – your date will look extra stunning in the flattering light of the setting sun. Before you go, switch up your air vent diffuser and make this evening date even hotter with the seductive scents of cedar, amber and jasmine essential oils.
4. Go stargazing.
This may be one of one of the most memorable Tesla dates you’ll ever have! Choose a clear night and a remote location away from the city lights. Fold down the back seats and bring a luxurious pillow and faux fur blanket to snuggle.
We suggest wiping down the glass roof before you leave so that it’s crystal clear, and bring a bottle of wine for your date (we recommend white wine, especially if you have those gorgeous white vegan leather seats). Cuddle up and watch for shooting stars together. What’s extra impressive? Download an astronomy App to identify stars, planets and other heavenly bodies!
5. Have a magical movie night.
You will need Tesla’s Premium Connectivity Service to stream Netflix or Disney – but if you have it, this date night is golden! Lean back, open a bag of popcorn and some chilled beverages and get lost in a romantic movie. We suggest keeping baby wipes handy to wipe oily fingers or clean up any spills (especially if you have those gorgeous white vegan leather seats).
6. Just drive. Fast!
Get ready to give your date some serious G-forces (we call them T-forces!) by racing laps at your local motorsport road course. Get out of Chill Mode and into Ludicrous Mode to blast off around turns, curves and straightaways on a controlled course! For extra heart-in-your-throat thrills, show off the power of your car’s Acceleration Boost upgrade. Stay safe and within the speed limits of course. Disclaimer: The EVehiclePro team is not responsible for effects of the adrenalin rush or the post-T-force ludicrous romance!
7. Love up your date’s pooch with Doggy Date Night.
Does your date have a dog? Score some points with your sexy fur parent by inviting the fur kid along! Bring a blanket and fold down the back seats (or grab a Pet seat cover). If you decide to go out to a non-dog friendly establishment without the pooch, make sure to activate Dog Mode to keep this precious pet at a comfortable cabin temperature. Sweep your date completely off their paws (feet!) by making a batch of these all natural La-La-Lavender dog biscuits for the adventure!
8. Go Dancing.
Take your date to an upscale club with valet services, and never worry about your car. Activate Valet Mode to restrict access to personal information and limit top speeds. Want to bring the romance up a level? Make this a private dance party. Park in a remote spot, get out and blast your favourite playlist! Shoes and inhibitions are optional.
9. Spend the night in nature, comfortably.
Whether your date involves some glamping or simply a late night of star gazing, be prepared with pillows, a cosy faux fur throw blanket and even a comfortable mattress designed for Tesla vehicles.
Hint: Go full-on with nature by putting your vehicle in Camp Mode for a woodland campfire scene (without the heat).
10. Change the name of your Tesla to impress your date!
Wherever you go, make this date legendary! Just like naming a boat after your favourite girl, change your car’s name to something meaningful for the two of you. Hey – it’s less permanent than a tattoo! Just don’t forget to change it back if things don’t work out though (we’re rooting for you).
