Do you have what it takes to dump the pump?
FREE Charging! I include the cost of all public charging in your rental and provide access cards to charging stations.
FREE Use of SouthEast Florida I-95 Express lanes. (Regularly they cost from $0.50-$11.00 per use)
FREE Use of all South East Florida carpool lanes (even if only one person)
Easily spend the day from Fort Lauderdale visiting Miami on a full charge or visit West Palm and charge for 2 hours there to get a full charge for your return.
I drive this car over 3,000 miles per month without a problem. To get the most out of an 100% electric car, it is wise to plan your trips. Go the shortest route, understand that city driving will get you higher efficiency than highway driving (opposite of a regular car), and know where you are going to charge at your destination before you go. You can easily get from Fort Lauderdale to Miami / Miami beach including some driving around and getting back, but it is wise to charge whenever you are spending time in a place to keep it topped up.

Typical driving range scenarios:
1) Light use with no access to a level 2 charging station:
If you do not have a charger where you are staying, use the "occasional use" Level 1 charger included in the car - this can be plugged into a standard 20A 120V outlet. If driving under 80 miles a day, if you plug it in for all of the time when you are not using it, this will get you by.
2) Light use with access to a Level 2 charging station. 3-4 hrs. charging per day will get you about 85 miles of range.
3) Either way, I recommend to plan your trips and research where you are going to plug it in when you get to your destination. If staying in Fort Lauderdale, there are a number of destinations you can go where they have charging stations while you enjoy your time. Examples:
Brickell (downtown Miami via the free metro mover)
West Palm Beach
A couple of locations that do not seem to have good charging stations:
Sawgrass Mall (Don;t worry, this is easy round trip range from Fort Lauderdale!)
Charging time from empty to full:
Level 1 charging (120V) can be done from a regular 20A outlet (about 20 hrs.)
Level 2 charging (240V) can be done from an installed home charger or public charging station (3-4 hrs.)
Level 3 charging (480V) can be done at some Nissan dealerships (empty to 80% in about 30 minutes)
Your rental includes a 30 minute overview of the car at the beginning of the rental when I can show you the features of the car and share my thoughts on how to get the most out of it.
Whether you want to make your vacation greener by driving a Zero Emission vehicle or are considering purchasing a LEAF and want to get to try one out for a week or two, this is the perfect car for you.
Very comfortable; outstanding performance; phenomenal smooth rapid acceleration and regenerative braking; stylish and with all the modern conveniences. Absolutely no gas, this car does not have an engine! Ice cold AC automatically re-calculates your range when using AC and re-calculates it back when you turn off AC.
This car is a tool to remove gasoline from your life completely. However, as with any tool - if used improperly, it will not give you the results you want. NOTE: this car is ideal for heavy city driving (I drive over 3,000 miles per month with the car and have done up to 240 miles in one day), however - it is not appropriate to plan long distance road trips with this car.
On a full charge the car has a range of 80-100 miles. I believe with planning, I could do well over 300 miles per day but charging infrastructure is the limiting factor.
Even though the range per charge is 80-100 miles, you can do multiple charges per day. General rule of thumb - if you are not driving it, charge it! Level 2 charging will get you about 25 miles range per hour.
Car features AM, FM, CD Stereo. Bluetooth, navigation system, power everything, back up camera. This car is awesome, you will love it!
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING; NO DRINKING AND DRIVING; NO RACING.
Car is extremely quiet, so be cautious of pedestrians that do not hear you coming.
This car is my prized possession. Please treat it with care. My main motivation to rent it out is that I want others to experience this great car!
Other than the tolls described above, Renter is responsible to reimburse me for all other tolls. (Turnpike ETC)
Please remove the aluminum shield from the sunpass if using toll roads (the aluminum shield is only allowed to be used on the I95 express lanes to avoid the toll).
The car will be detailed prior to you picking it up.
PLEASE remove sand before entering the car.
