This Thursday, May 27, a rather special “vernissage” took place in the presence of Bruno Espic, mayor of Saint-jean as well as the sales team of Tesla Store Plaisance du Touch and the three partners of the Saint-Jean driving school. Jeans.
It was officially inaugurated the 1st lesson in the Toulouse region on a Tesla brand electric vehicle.
Several Toulouse driving schools have already bet on the electric vehicle, but none have taken the concept to the point of taking a Tesla, a reference brand in the field of “green” mobility.
The Tesla Model 3 is the 3rd car equipped with a dual-control system in France, the 1st driving school having taken this step (in 2019) being located in Lunel (Occitanie) and the 2nd in the Paris region.
Despite everything, in this specific version called “Performance” (nearly 500 horsepower), the Saint-Jean driving school is the first French driving school to bet on raising awareness among its students and their parents about a vehicle that is really innovative, whose driving and present functions require a certain apprenticeship for this car “of the future”. The public will have to familiarize themselves with the multiple driving aids (including the famous autopilot) and a different behavioral approach compared to a thermal vehicle.
