IMPORTANT: ELECTRIC VEHICLES ARE DIFFERENT. THEY HAVE UNIQUE FEATURES AND REQUIREMENTS. PLEASE READ THIS CAREFULLY BEFORE MAKING A RENTAL REQUEST.
The Nissan Leaf is a pure, all-electric, zero-emissions vehicle, which you can drive up to 90 miles on a single charge, usually averages about 70 (65 miles if driving at freeway speeds). It is not a hybrid and cannot use gasoline.
Experience the smooth and quiet ride of electric power, and instant 100% torque as the electric motor accelerates from a full stop. The vehicle comes equipped with Sirius XM radio, GPS navigation system, A/C, CD player, Bluetooth and USB connections to stream your personal music collection to its audio system.
The Leaf's CarWings telematics system displays and routes you to nearby recharging locations at the touch of a button. EV charging stations are abundant and well distributed across the Orange County area, and there is an app called PlugShare that will tell you where nearby stations are. Many stations are free for EV drivers; others cost $1~$2 per hour.
You may not need to pay a cent for "fuel" while driving this car. If you want, you can plug it in to any standard 120V outlet at your home or garage for an overnight "slow" charge with the included charging adapter - a full charge costs just $3~$4 in electricity.
So bring it back nearly empty if you want - no extra charge! (Ignore the standard verbiage in RelayRides' reservation request box that "You must replace the gas that you use." Just don't drive 'til the battery is dead. You will need a tow truck!)
