EV Rides truly believes in the transition to sustainable energy. And hey, why not when EVs are this much fun to drive? EVs and sustainable energy use are genuine passions for us and our employees. We love to educate our clients on how to use the vehicles, as well as why doing so is such fun and a worthy venture. That’s why EV Rides exists. Listen, if you want to explore Colorado, you’ll need a car anyway. Make it a quiet, smooth ride in an EV (that just so happens to go like a rocket).
Michael Aschenbrener founded EV Rides in Denver, Colorado in 2019 after he rented his first Tesla, a 2012 Tesla Model S 85 named “Monty.” With a VIN under 2,000, it was one of the first Model S’s to leave the Fremont factory; it was black/black with lacewood trim, professional chrome-delete, and tint. What an awesome car!
Rather than trading in Monty when he decided to take delivery of a new Tesla Model 3 LR AWD (“Otto”), he listed Monty for rent. It rented right away. “Hmm, this is interesting,” he thought, and the rest is history.Book a Car
This Could Be a Real Business
The Lightbulb Moment
By the end of summer 2019, Michael’s family actually had to rent a car for themselves because both of theirs were rented, leaving them with no vehicle to take the kids to school, sports, and other activities. After the second time in three weeks that they needed to rent a vehicle, the proverbial light bulb went off: this could be a real business.
Formation of EV Rides
In late September 2019, Michael officially formed EV Rides. The very next day, we took delivery of our first company vehicle, a blue/white Model 3 LR AWD named “Stormfly” (Michael's kids were very much into the “How to Train Your Dragon” movies at the time). Stormfly immediately started renting. So, in mid-October, our company took delivery of its second vehicle, a white/white 7-passenger Model X named “Light Fury.”
After adding another Model X in November and two more new Teslas in December 2019, the company was off and running, ready for the new year — until the pandemic brought its reign of terror to the world in March 2020. We weathered the storm, though, and began adding vehicles again in July 2020. EV Rides is now focused on smart growth for 2021 and beyond so that we can serve more guests and help them make the transition to sustainable energy.

Pro tip on what to do when supercharging: Stop at the Silverthorne Supercharger when heading to Keystone, Breckenridge, Copper, Vail, or Beaver Creek, even if you want to keep pushing on. It is next to a Starbucks®, across the street from a Chipotle and a Which Wich®, and adjacent to the Outlets at Silverthorne.
Remember, after climbing to over 12,000 feet and driving through the Eisenhower tunnel, you and your Tesla will be ready for a quick recharge. Plus, your Tesla will then be charged and ready for whatever surprises await — you have to be ready for anything in the Rockies.
Two of those “anythings” are 1) how elevation gain can impact range (very important when driving through the Rockies on a skiing trip), and 2) how overnight range loss can occur in cold weather.
We’ll send all the pertinent information you’ll need after you secure your reservation.
