What is a Tesla Partner Owners Club?
A Tesla Partner Owners Club is a community of owners and enthusiasts, in partnership with Tesla, committed to advancing Tesla's mission to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy. Club members help advocate for Tesla by supporting legislative efforts, offering test-drives, volunteering at shows, educating new and prospective owners, hosting social events and passionately referring friends and family to explore Tesla ownership for themselves.
How many Tesla Owners Clubs are there?
There is a global network of Tesla Owners Clubs which are partnered by Tesla which also provides oversight of the Club Program. These official Clubs can be found on Tesla Engage in the Find A Club page. There are currently over 170 clubs worldwide in 25 countries with greater than 180,000 members...and these numbers continue to grow. It is estimated that 1 in 10 Tesla owners are members of a Tesla Owners Club.
Why should I pay annual membership dues?
Membership dues pay for Club insurance (a requirement in order to organize events involving cars) and club operating expenses like maintaining the website. Please support our volunteer efforts by supporting us as a member!
Do all events require a membership to attend?
It’s the club's desire to promote electric vehicles, so certain public events are offered without a charge and do not require membership. However, social events and some volunteer opportunities will be available only to members. Most events will be available to the free tier, but some special events will be limited to paid tiers.
What does it cost to become a member?
There are several levels of membership to suit different budgets, including "free." They are described on the Join us page if you are not currently a member. If you are a member, they are accessible via the member profile under the 'Membership Level' section by clicking on the Change link. A further description of the membership levels is also found here.
My partner/spouse wants to participate, too. Do I need two memberships?
We offer three membership levels that include a membership for a second adult in the household. These are Standard Family, Ludicrous Family and Plaid. This bundle membership is available at a reduced price compared to buying two individual memberships. The family membership requires a VIN or RN code to join. The second bundled member in the family membership is added by the original member and does not require a separate VIN or RN code. So you only need one vehicle for both of you to join.
Who can join?
Membership in an official partner Telsa Owners Clubs is limited by the Global Tesla Owners Club Program to owners of Tesla vehicles or those with a valid reservation number.
Why are you asking me for my VIN?
We ask for your VIN as part of your membership application in order to verify your eligibility to join the club with Tesla. Reservation holders are also eligible, but must provide a valid VIN after delivery in order to remain a member. VIN numbers are kept safe and private.
Can I join if I live in … ?
Our Club covers the Greater Philadelphia metropolitan region, Southeastern Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. We have chapters which provide local meetings and support as well as the overall club events and meetings. Your membership will specify a home chapter as well as allowing you to select additional chapters in which you have interest. We'll keep you informed about club wide events, your home chapter's events and events for all chapters in which you have specified interest.
What are typical events like?
Our club meets at least monthly for various social, educational or public outreach get-togethers. There are many opportunities to get involved, meet like-minded people and make new friendships, and provide community service. We are particularly proud of our First Responder education program called "Tesla Crash Course."
