I live and work on the island and would be happy to give you some suggestions to create the best experience on Kauai. Looking forward to meeting you. We offer both gas and electric vehicles through out company Mission Zero Hawaii which was developed to introduce people to electric cars and provide island visitors a sustainable mode of transportation. On Kauai during a sunny day we generate ~90% of our island’s energy from renewable energy resources thus if you charge the car during the day on Kauai you are literally powering the car with the sun.

Great communication with Justin. Very cool to drive a Tesla Model S in Kauai!

This car was great! It was awesome that we didn't have to buy gas while on the island. The only bad thing is that not all of the EV chargers on the island work properly. The one at the resort we were staying at didn't work, and there were several other stations that were out of order as well. It was difficult to plan our day around also finding a working and open EV charger. We picked the car up from Justin's house which was close to the resort but I wish he was able to drop it off at the airport because it was inconvenience to take it back and Uber to the airport.

Pros: 1. Had all the essentials. The car started and went. All you can ask for really. 2. Thank goodness the air conditioning worked. 3. The car had no off-smells which I greatly appreciated. 4. The radio works. 5. Justin allowed us to book this with less than 12 hours notice which was, in every way, bombastic. Cons: 1: Having the rear passenger door permanently unable to open was a pain. Especially when the way to open the trunk was to pull a string in the back seat. 2: no auxillary cable jack. 3: requested to clean the car. What? It's a rental car. I'm, of course, going to get sand inside on the floor mats. Kauai is 50% Beach. Unless the price gets dropped from $38/day, I don't plan on renting this again.

Justin was great, brought the car back cleaner. Would definitely let him use my car again.
