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.
How its going.
Now a decade later, with over 3000 vehicles in our fleet and industry leading products like XCare, Xcelerate is growing right along side the EV manufacturers and supporting them with products and services that add value to owners and strengthen the overall market on EVs.
We are building the future as a local community and national company, with the most talented, driven individuals ever. At Xcelerate, it doesn't matter where you come from - our differences are what make us stronger, and we're all on the same mission.
It’s possible to power the world with clean energy.

"Easy to work with. Both from an end user and from Tesla's end per the Supervising tech. Called XCare gave them my list of issues, scheduled appointment via app. Took vehicle in. Tesla determined faults, sent estimate and received approval same day. Tesla did repairs. Notified XCare and received corporate CC number, remaining balance due was $100. No issues."

"DEB WAS AMAZING! By far the best car buying experience I’ve had in my life. Deb went above and beyond to make the purchase of my new vehicle a great experience. She was very transparent and upfront with all costs and the process. I would give 10 Stars if I could. Thank you Deb and Xcelerate Auto for helping me lease my Dream Car!"
"I bought an XCare warranty for my Tesla. The guys were great. Buying was easy, as expected. I had no problems with claims. Had two door issues with my Model X and both times I just emailed the claims team, sent them the invoice, and they paid. I have to admit I always have some trepidation dealing with insurance companies but they were very communicative and helpful. Good product, good people, good service."

"If you are looking to buy a Tesla I highly recommend using Xcelerate Auto as your third-party. I had the pleasure of working with Deb specifically. During the slow months of waiting for my Tesla, Deb always answered my questions or concerns right away. She kept me in the loop and never left me in the dark and was very honest and upfront. It can be very frustrating trying to get into contact with Tesla, however she definitely helped me get a sooner delivery date, and got the answers I needed!"
