Tesloop, a California based startup, is building the first fleetshare offering, leveraging new semi-autonomous, deeply connected, electric vehicles, which offer radically lower cost per mile with unprecedented optimization opportuniites. Tesla owners can enlist their vehicle in Tesloop’s collaborative fleet, and receive benefits and rental fees to subsidize their vehicle cost. Consumers can book rental or rideshare mobility services, with a focus on customer experience.

Tesloop’s initial consumer focus is on long distance routes, where the transformative economics of the electric drivetrain are realized. Tesloop diplaces one-way rentals, commuter flights and trains, by enalbing consumers to book seats or rent cars.

Tesloop has a strong emphasis on the software technology required for routing, pricing, remote vehicle administration, and security, as well predictive models based on deep learning from the vehicle data. Tesloop is creating open source tokenzied software as a foundation for the service. Since its launch in 2015, Tesloop has become the highest rated transportation service in the world, and is rapidly expanding across California and beyond.
