How do I turn my car on and off?

You can turn off your Tesla by putting the car in park, exiting the car and closing the door behind you, or by using your touchscreen through Controls > Safety & Security > Power Off.

The Tesla is designed to maintain its battery over time and will not overcharge when plugged in for an extended period of time.
