A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Do you want to try out the electric car revolution for free? Then you've come to the right place! Here you will find an unofficial game where you can drive vehicles from Tesla Motors while experiencing breathtaking open world environments featuring Elon Musk's other projects. 

- Do you have what it takes to control a Tesla Roadster equipped with SpaceX thrusters?


  • Vehicles: Model S, Model X, Model 3, Roadster 2020 (yes, it can do 0-100 in 2 seconds in the game), Semi
  • The real test track that's located at the Tesla factory in Fremont, California
  • The co-founder of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, has also founded the rocket company SpaceX. Two of the rockets in the background are from SpaceX. The other rocket is the Saturn V that launched us to the Moon
  • The boring machine from The Boring Company, which is another project by Elon Musk


"I love that you have the Tesla Track on there. I actually used to be one of the Test drivers, and then after I was the lead for that team." - internetmexican

"I don't even know if I can call this a game - it's more of an experience." - Neilogical


Press escape to open the menu and you will find all keys.


  • Twitter for previews of upcoming updates: twitter.com/eriknordeus  (I may even retweet if your share your Tesla Simulator moments on Twitter and tag me!)


To add more frequent updates, there's a beta version that should work fine. What's currently broken is vehicle physics. I've implemented stability control, but not ABS brakes, so the tires are squeeking really hard. If you get tired of squeeking tires you can always turn off vehicle electronics. Also acceleration is not accurate. But you as a professional gamer should be able to handle them anyway! 

Features you can try in the beta: optimizations, SpaceX Starbase Boca Chica Launch Site, Not-A-Flamethrower, Cybertruck, Roadster with thruster, new Starship and Super Heavy, Elon Musk himself, Dogecoins, LEGO Cybertruck, etc.


How can I download the game?1. Find out which system you have: Windows, Linux, or Mac
2. Press download button and the zip folder with the game will be downloaded to your computer
3. Unzip the folder. If you are using Windows 10 you should be able to right click and then select extract all 
4. Double-click on the exe file to start the game (if you are on Windows). Otherwise you have to figure out somewhere else how to start the game. On Windows 10 you may get a warning if you really want to run the game, but I promise I haven't included a nasty virus, so ignore the warning! 
What are the system requirements?Should work on most computers. I've tested it on my older laptop. Don't forget that you can lower graphics settings if you have problems.
Why is everything pink? The Mac and Linux versions are untested because I don't own any of these! If you are on a Mac or Linux and everything is pink, try to download the "light" version, which is exactly the same - except a little brighter and fewer shadows.
Who are you and how often will you update the game?This is a free game made by a single person so I will update when I have time! I'm a Tesla enthusiast and an engineer (MSc) so I will do my best to make the game as accurate as possible. But vehicle engineering and open world games are difficult topics so have patience! 
Last update: 2019-02-11
Last beta update: 2022-02-14
Will you add interior?The problem with the interior is that it's very time consuming to make detailed interior, so I may add it in the future, but not soon.
Will you add doors?This would require detailed interior, so see above.
Will you add lights?Yes, I just have to figure out which light should be on at which time.
Why can't I drive the Semi with trailer?I've noticed that sometimes the Semi with trailer is stuck and will not move whatever you do. If it happens, try to first reverse and then press forward. I will try to fix this bug in the next update.
Will you add self-driving?It's a Tesla Simulator so self-driving has to be added (even though Teslas are not really self-driving yet). BUT self-driving in a game is as difficult as self-driving in real life, so it will take a very long time to add so it's not a priority. 

...so what are you waiting for? Let's go like hell!

Download the game like +70 000 other Tesla fans already have and experience the bright future! 

Thank you everyone who has already downloaded the game. I love you all!

A persisting issue now is that I walk backward as if my key is stuck

neither the mac or windows ones work, even after installing itch on both my mac and PC

(1 edit)

hi I love Tesla but. finder says cannot open  so that's sad for me :(

mac.zip does not work, but lite does

pls update this 

if u play it for a long time, it gets reeeeaaaaally boring


wow, this game is really realistic. Image result for tesla crash

I'm surprised Neilogical commented it (not that its bad)

(big fan of him) 

yoo habrador are you still developing this game?

Is this a Virus 

no it's not

no it not

and an update pleaseee

Hey habrador, can you improve the model of the model x please :D

I really love this game. I have one suggestion though. When are you going to make the interiors of the cars? I would love this game even more (if that is even possible)! 

also are the model y and newer model x coming soon?

The game is quite lovely, especially the Tesla models. But the lack of customizing ability and the way cars break perplexed me. I would love to see more ways to change settings e.g. the mouse sensitivity or the quality of the render.

habrador, sorry to make you really interrupted, but can you make an update 3 days faster? its a long time since i last played this game, btw, the dogecoin is really cool!

i dont like tesla

dont play this game then!

Since you don't like Tesla, don't play with it. Don't say these words in the comment area!!!!!!

i wanna make a  video on this game is that ookay?

I love you!!


Hello  There, I'm a User of this Game. Like to Say its Epic!! One Suggestion I do not use the beta version because it lags my PC a bit and ya know how cringe lag can be but I don't experience it on the non-beta version. Wondering if you can add the things like the Roadster 1.0, Cybertruck and StarShip to the Non-Beta? Thank You Have a good Day!


Consider Donating to the 2022 QLD/NSW Floods

Thats odd because the beta has all the optimizations to avoid lag!

can you use wine to try the beta version on linux?



Thank you for playing my game!!! 


glitched my car into a ramp so ive been smashing every other car in the game to get it out. The model x(i think) did some real damge be pushing it back a bit but also destroying the car itself


its still stuck inside. I really want that car outta there. what a waste of time for a model 3.


can you add the cyberquad. i know its stupid but imagine going 300km in a kids trike

Yes its on my todo list!


loved the game,   but i have a few recommondations.

Firstly, the roadster is a bit wonky looking. Maybe its my computer, but just in case, can you figure out why?

Also, the cars are really slidey. There is like no control. And the turning is kind of delayed but it is still very good.

Lastly, the lighiting is a bit too bright, it would be nice for you to fix that. Thanks.

A new Roadster 1 model is in progress.

I just realised it is wonky because of  my bad driving. I crashed the car completely in just one hit. And the second, that was all just the roadster. But the lighting is too bright, also, its nice to see that the 'bigger one' actually takes less damage when crashing compared to the smaller cars like the 3 which died after one hit and now it looks like a lemon designed by musk


Ok i made some promotional images/videos for you, you dont have to use them but there i just felt like using them :)

OK so i got a new idea that could make this game a thousnd times better, so apparently in game auto pilot is hard but you have already made it (https://habrador.itch.io/hybrid-a-star) so cant you just code a small menu that opens when you press enter or something to select where you want to go or to make it simpler you could make it so when you press the autopilot button you chose it keeps you on the road your on like in my last suggestion


Nonono that one is for smaller areas only - but I will use it when I implement Smart Summon

Ok cool


Ok so I got an idea I think that you should adds roads to the map and (at least in the uk) The self driving just keeps you on the road and when it gets to a junction it makes you take over :) 

you should do that instead of full self driving

Also in my review i talked about crash avoidance 


Yes roads will be added! Roads are complicated to make (especially the junctions) which is why I haven't added them so far!

Also thank you for the 5 star review <3 

Your welcome

OK i got the cybertruck but it wont render

Yes it does, I havent added all parts of it yet! I told you it was hollow!


(1 edit)

How do I get the cyber truck???????

i got the normal windows one do i need the bata

The beta has a rather hollow unfinished Cybertruck (and a LEGO cybertruck - but you cant drive the LEGO one only crash into it)


I'm on a new laptop and I'm downloading it :)

(1 edit)

i updated to mac os big sur and now it keeps on saying that i do not have permission to open the file and i also am the administrator on the computer does anyone know how to get around it?

download the itch.io app thingy.


habrador, this is 2022, why don't u make an update? it's been a year since the beta update launched, and i haven't played tesla sim for 1 year now, please release a new update! :

(3 edits)

Thank you for your comment and glad you are still interested! I've been in a creative slump, but my creativity is finally back again, so I will push out new content very soon!

And the latest beta launched 2021-09-10 so it hasnt been a year - just 4 months! 😜

(1 edit)

my fps 9-8 why drop how to fix

Lower graphics or upgrade computer!


I really love the game, but it would be way more cooler and fun if u could add autopilot on most of the cars! REALLY GOOD!!!

Please add the full version of ver. 2021-09-11 plz I'm A tesla lover and tesla sim lover

habrador. How do I enable with a booster? I can't find witch the key is.

If you are talking about the Roadster 2 thruster you have to play the beta and hold right mouse button

Not working. A big pink screen. Nothing else. 

Manjaro Linux

Try the 'light' version of the game.

y is the beta one only for windows? plz put it also for macos

i cant download sorry:<
