Description

*******THIS IS AN ELECTRIC CAR!!******** Don't worry about the high island gas prices, and look out for the environment with this Ford Focus Electric. Car is great to get around the island. Can get up to Waimea and back, and several quick charging stations around the island. Approximately 100 mile range, depending on your driving, uphill amount, and use of the ac/heater. Child friendly and pet friendly. Just please clean up after. Note: This means there have been dogs and kids in the car, if anyone is severely allergic to either you might want to pass =) I will include a standard wall plug to use to charge the car too. If your place has a higher voltage charger I have a few options we can discuss. Otherwise you can charge at any of the quick charge stations. Kama'aina discounts. 1) Car will be provided with 100% charge, please return over 90% charged or purchase the recharge option 2) Car has cold AC and heater works if needed. 3) Android play for music and navigation 4) Child and 3 adults fit comfortably, or 4 adults. 5 Adults or 4 Adults 1 child may be a squeeze. 5) Can provide trunk organizer if wanted for free, but it reduces the space available. We are approximately 20 minutes from the airport and can drop off the car for a fee. Usually this is going to be either on the weekends or after 4pm. Pickup can be at any time. I am available for any questions about the island, or the car. If you have any additional pet or child items you might require let me know and we may be able to provide them. Notes: Can include a quality carseat for an additional fee if requested. Can allow pets with some restrictions for an additional fee. The 110v charger is very slow for charging. It can take up to 24 hours to charge on it. If you know the place your staying has a faster plug I can provide the rapid charger. The fast chargers from heco take approx 30 minutes to charge. Range notes: Making it across to Hilo on saddle can be hit or miss. Some people have made it, but others have ran out of charge. Would suggest to go up to waimea and across, since it's mostly the crazy elevation change that's the problem. The range estimator in the car is really bad for estimating range on unlevel ground. On level ground you should be able to get about a mile a percentage. Going up hill it rapidly changes it's mind about how much distance is left. Assuming you are not making the entire trip uphill you would be fine. If you are driving long distances up hill you can expect about .5 miles per percentage and 1.5 downhill. This of course changes based on the degree of elevation change. Note: one of the previous guests dinged the door and bumper. I haven't been able to get it fixed yet. I have attached picture of the damage. It doesn't affect the safety or operation of the car or door.

Guidelines

Dogs and kids welcome but please clean the interior and run through the automatic car wash. Please do NOT!!! run out of charge. It is very hard to get towed sometimes in Hawaii, especially with covid cases. No smoking or vaping in the car please!

Faqs

  • How far can I get on a charge?

    Approximately 100 miles. Potentially longer if you don't run the AC, use the regen braking, and dont run the AC.

  • How do I charge?

    There are plenty of quick charge stations around the island. There is one in Kona. I will provide a regular houseplug charging kit, and can also provide a higher voltage one if requested.

Jason was truly an exceptional host. Made our first visit first to Hawaii truly memorable. I had never driven an EV and he put my heart at rest by providing all the information to help with charging. If we come back to Kona again, we will be glad to rent from him. Mahalo!

Jason was really helpful and great with communication. The only reason why I rated as I did is because I didn’t notice that when I booked this is an electric car. It is just very difficult to get around the hilly Big Island so unless you have a lot of experience with route planning I would proceed with caution.
