How to Create or Delete a Tesla Account

Your Tesla Account includes owner resources, guides and important updates. Combined with the Tesla app, you can do everything from remotely monitoring your vehicle and energy usage to transferring ownership.

Note: A Tesla Account is required to be added as an additional driver to a Tesla vehicle.

Creating Your Tesla Account

To create a Tesla Account without placing an order, follow these steps:

  1. Visit Create Account.
  2. Enter your information.
  3. Click ‘Create Account.’
Resetting Your Password

If you want to change your Tesla Account password, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Tesla Account.
  2. Tap ‘Profile Settings.’
  3. Next to ‘Password,’ tap ‘Reset.’
  4. Follow the prompts.

If you can’t sign in to your Tesla Account or forgot your password, you can reset your password online.
