How do I open a Tesla door?

My cousin got a Tesla and said we could go for a ride. I’ve been looking at her car from the kitchen and I can’t for the life of me figure out how I’d open the door. I don’t want to make a fool of myself because I know my cousins and they’ll never let me live it down. How do I open the car door to a Tesla?

I hope you enjoy your drive with your cousins. You can’t get into the Tesla without your cousin. When she approaches the car with her keys, the handle will pop out. If your door handle doesn’t pop out and look like a normal car door handle, then she doesn’t have it set up to let you in.
In that case, you just have to wait for that handle to appear or press the door handle. Depending on the system she has in place the doors might automatically open as well.
If you want to make your cousins jealous with your car, you can do so by saving money with the Jerry app. The Jerry app will compare the top 50 car insurance companies and give you options that fit you with the best deal. The average Jerry user saves $879 a year on car insurance.
