I love my 100% electric car!
PLEASE NOTICE: If you have never experienced driving and charging a 100% electric car, I recommend that you rent another car. Also, the driving range between charges is about 55 miles. NO TRIPS TO L.A., Outlets or Joshua Tree National Park! You will run out of power. But this car is great for local driving only.
While the learning curve is not difficult, it is a learning curve. You must charge it every night where you are staying. There are free charging stations around the valley, and perhaps at the hotel where you are staying (some hotels have charging available for guests).
Check your hotel to see if charging is available. Three of the biggest, Palm Springs Hilton, JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert and the Omni Rancho Las Palmas in Rancho Mirage have FREE charging available! If you are staying with friends, check with them first about charging the car.
Depending on how much you use it, you will have to charge it every night.
