How it started.

It all started back in 2012 when Tesla asked us to create the first leases on Model S. We had no historical data to base residuals off of and most states had never even heard of Tesla at that point. We had to create a program for the manufacturer and it's direct to consumer model that didn't violate state franchise dealer laws. The desire for electric cars to succeed and the thought of an emissions free future motivated us to take the leap to electrification. We formed Xcelerate in 2014 and made a pledge that year to remove all ICE vehicles from our fleet and only provide products and services for EVs.

We set a goal to form a team of former Tesla employees and EV experts, create products and services by first questioning what the ideal experience is for an EV owner, and creating the journey to achieve that ideal experience.

Customer obsession is our core value, and getting more butts in EV seats is our core mission.
