La Réserve Gives Tesla Roadsters a Ride

The roads along the shores of Lake Geneva are a bit rowdier with the debut of La Réserve Genève’s new fleet of five Tesla Roadsters, but make no mistake, this is a quiet riot. Situated just outside Geneva, Switzerland, La Réserve is now home to the largest fleet of the Silicon Valley–developed sports cars on the planet. The fastest all-electric car in production, each zero-emissions Roadster is equipped with a silent-running 375-volt electric engine that delivers 273 ft lbs of torque right off the line, granting the vehicle an impressive zero-to-60 acceleration time of less than four seconds. With a top speed of 125 mph and a maximum range of 245 miles on a single charge, the Roadster allows guests plenty of freedom to explore the countryside around Lake Geneva or travel to nearby Montreux or the medieval town of Gruyéres. Each two-seater is available for single-day use, for $984, or as part of the hotel’s Tesla Break package, which is priced from $2,300 and includes accommodations for two nights and use of a Roadster. After a day’s drive, guests can luxuriate at La Réserve Genève’s 20,000-square-foot spa, or dine on traditional Continental fare at Le Loti restaurant or at the Chinese-inspired Tsé Fung restaurant, which affords diners views of Mont Blanc in the distance.
