Description

The 2017 BMW i3 REX is a fun-to-drive and practical luxury electric vehicle (EV) with energetic acceleration; it’s also eco-friendly and made with sustainable materials. This vehicle is surprisingly spacious and easy to drive and park. Fuel economy is equivalent to 137 hwy / 111 city mpg by way of a 94 Ah / 33 kWh battery and also a gas (91 octane) powered range extender that combined provides a range of up to 200-220 miles (depending on driving habits/conditions). It can be charged to 80 percent in just 40 minutes using Level 3 charging (also known as rapid charging). Included with your rental will be the standard 120V Level 1 BMW EVSE (charging) cable that you can plug into your standard 120V wall outlet. You will typically want to charge via this method overnight. Since this car has a gas powered range extender, you have the capability to switch to the gas powered range extender (and hold the current battery power level) when the vehicle has less than a 70% electric charge. However, the range extender does automatically kick in when the battery level is too low as well. Also provided will be charging station cards for Blink and ChargePoint that you can use during your rental to facilitate your charging experience. You will receive a reimbursement request for your incurred charging expenses at the end of your trip, if you choose to use them (no additional fees or surcharges will be added). This vehicle is ideal for local and in-state travel. If you enjoy the EV driving experience, are interested in buying an EV, or you’re just curious about what all the electric talk is about, you should consider renting this vehicle. This is my second EV and I am more than happy to give insight/tips on living with and driving an EV to anyone interested.
