Description

The flag decoration in my dashboard is a Trinidad and Tobago Flag 🇹🇹 ( https://w.wiki/Jix ). The light shines through it weird. 😅 I am from Trinidad, that's why it's there. Located a 15 minute drive from the airport and a 20 minute drive from downtown. Range: 238+ Miles in the summer. About 160-180 Miles in the winter. The Wifi password is available upon request, so ask me on pickup, if you want it. Helpful if you're not from the U.S. and still need connectivity, while renting the car. Uses the AT&T network Pets Welcome!!! Included in the trunk are pet covers for the front and back seat. Also has emergency gear in case of a crash, and a tire pump in the trunk. The bike rack is removable, and not usually kept with the car, so please ask me beforehand to bring it, if you need it on the rental. I have a Level 1 110V charger and a Level 2 220/240V charger for pretty much every kind of 220/240 plug that exists. * NEMA 6-20: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B018A6QK7C * NEMA 10-30: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0758TLC8H * NEMA 14-50: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DHFH8LW If you have a different 240V plug that you want a charger for, let me know, and I'll get a charger for it. The 110V charger can be a bit slow and the Bolt is missing that extra quick charge option. Chevy dealers will charge the car for free. This model of the car doesn't include the quick charge option aka the DC Fast Charge option I'm including the use of my EV charge station cards, upon request (in case I forget to lend them to you), so you'll be free to use public chargers for free while renting my car. I recommend you install and use Plugshare to your phone to look up public chargers, but Google Maps now supports most EV charging stations as well. ---- One needs to be prepared when driving an electric car. Before renting my car, please confirm that you have the following things in place. * You know the total distance that you will be traveling during the rental. If it is more than the distance I have on the car at the time, or more than the rating on the car which is 238 miles (160-180 miles in winter), you will need a charging solution in place. Be prepared for that. See the points below * You know where you can charge the car. The car needs to be charged from a 220-240V plug (I supply the cable). A 110V plug is not practical for anyone's needs (Even though I also supply this cable). Either that or a public charging station. Please look up public charging stations on Google Maps for your destination so that you know where you will be able to charge the car. Bookmark a few in that area, so you can try a different one in case you run into one that is not working. Note the company whose charging station it is. * Install and setup the charging station apps in order to be able to use the charging stations on your trip. There are four charging companies in the area. Blink and Chargepoint are the most popular, but the one you install and setup will depend on the ones you see on the map. * Blink - https://www.blinknetwork.com/mobile.html * Chargepoint - https://www.chargepoint.com/drivers/mobile/ * Semaconnect - https://www.semaconnect.com/blog/download-our-app/ * EVgo - https://www.evgo.com/download-app/ * Electrify America - https://www.electrifyamerica.com/mobile-app * And please, message me if you can't find somewhere to charge the car, as soon as possible.

Faqs

  • How do I charge the car?

    There are public charging stations in the area. Before renting the car, please verify that there are charging stations near your destination, or somewhere along your journey. A typical 220-240V charger charges at a rate of about 30 miles per hour. So factor that into your plans There are four charging companies in the area.

  • How do I find charging stations?

    There are a few ways. One is just to search on Google Maps. Google Maps recently added support for this. The other is with an app called Plugshare. It is much more detailed than Google Maps - https://www.plugshare.com Can also use the indivudal charging service apps which have maps and search for their chargers

  • Do you include charging cables?

    Yes. I have a Level 1 110V charger and a Level 2 220/240V charger for pretty much every kind of 220/240 plug that exists. * NEMA 6-20: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B018A6QK7C * NEMA 10-30: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0758TLC8H * NEMA 14-50: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DHFH8LW If you have a different 240V plug that you want a charger for, let me know, and I'll get a charger for it.

Public chargers don't include that though, and neither do any of the cables that I will be supplying

Great car, loved driving it, impressed friends and family, beats expectations. NO LEVEL III CHARGING PORT works fine as long as you don't need to go further than the pack goes in one day. Charging on level II means charging up for another 25-30 miles per hour on the charger. Great for while you're parked several hours at a hotel or for overnight to fully recharge. Household outlets add way too slowly, but add 50+ miles overnight. Google maps, plugshare app, and others help you locate Level II chargers easily. Enjoy zero-gas driving!
