Man Incidentally Unlocks Someone Else’s Tesla with App

In Vancouver last week, Rajesh Randev unlocked his Tesla vehicle in a parking lot, got into it, and drove away to pick up his kids.

Interestingly, it wasn’t his car. Two Tesla cars were parked next to each other, and Randev unlocked the wrong car through the app.

As he drove, he noticed a crack in the car windshield he hadn’t known before.

He even managed to call his wife to ask about the crack, which she knew nothing about.

Randev also noticed his charger was in a different spot than where he had kept it that morning.

Ten minutes later, he got a text that said, “Rajesh, are you driving Tesla?”

Later, another text arrived explaining he had taken the wrong car.

Randev pulled over and called the texter. Each party was calm, and they worked it out together.

During that memorable trip, Randev even could start the Tesla vehicle again and pick up his kids from school.

He finally meets the car’s owner and his real car an hour and a half later.

Both men were laughing, and Randev called the police, too.

Later, Randev sent emails and a video to Tesla to explain the event, but the emails were bouncing back due to the full mailbox.
