When NYC startup SideTour invited us to their DC market preview event to drive a Tesla Model S – the world’s best electric car – we jumped at the chance

The hatchback trunk in the Tesla is so large it can be fitted with optional child seats

No hybrid motor, just a pure electric car. You plug it in here and can drive 265 miles on a single charge

We ♡ the touchscreen. A giant reverse camera and access to Google Maps + a web browser!

SideTour is an NYC-based startup that launched in August 2011; a marketplace of life experiences, SideTour helps local experts organize curated experiences for a group of attendees – think ‘Hand-Roll and Decorate Your Own Truffles with a Chocolatier’ or ‘Go Undercover with a Former CIA Disguise Technician’ both examples of experiences available to you for the SideTour DC launch. We attended a pre-launch preview of the SideTour experience: a test-drive of the Tesla Model S at the Tesla Motors Showroom on K Street in Washington DC.

Not since the iPhone have we experienced a product as game-changing as the Tesla Model S. From the absolutely silent motor, amazing acceleration, giant touchscreen dashboard, two giant trunks, and great looks, the Tesla exceeded any expectation we harbored before our test drive. You can currently experience it for yourself by signing up for the Tesla Model S Test Drive SideTour – hurry there’s only 4 left!

We can’t wait to participate in another SideTour experience. Welcome to DC SideTour!

      It forced me to re-think all my preconceived notions of electric cars!
