Description

2015 Nissan Leaf SL Premium hatchback. Super Black. This is an all electric vehicle (EV). The Nissan Leaf is the first EV model to go over one billion miles. This is your chance to drive an EV before considering buying one. This vehicle is for sale for $11,730 cash. You may deduct your entire rental fee. With no engine noise, you can hear conversation, music, or surroundings much better. It has an AZ cloud plate, so you can use AZ HOV lanes with only the driver in the car. Acceleration and handling are amazing. Use the ECO mode to tone it down by requiring a heavier push on the pedal to get full acceleration. Be careful your first few weeks driving an EV, especially around turns and parking lot curbs, because it is very easy to accelerate too fast. Range: About 50 miles. This is on a freeway at 64 mph, flat road, no wind. Whatever the battery % is, you can go about half that many miles if you baby the accelerator a little. Going slower, you will get longer range. Going faster, you will get shorter range. In a critical regular application, do a test drive, first, in order to see how much the battery goes down and if you will be able to do that drive regularly. Always leave at least 10% extra for unforeseen circumstances. Always charge above 90% before traveling... To accommodate new EV drivers, we offer a few extras not normally available on Turo: 1. EV orientation session. After you check out the car, we will stay on hand for up to 60 minutes as you need to learn differences in driving an EV. 2. Free fuel award for your entire trip. To save you from registering for EV fuel accounts, we let you use ours. And as long as you follow some reasonable rules, we will waive and cover all fuel charges. 3. EV extras package. We provide a check-out/check-in list for EV accessories. There is no charge to you unless you fail to return any items in normal condition. Anything you do not need, you can leave with us. 12A charging cable. 16A charging cable. Charge cards for up to 4 networks.

Faqs

  • Are animals allowed in the car?
    Service animals and pets are allowed. For your safety, pets should be kept in a kennel while driving. All we ask is that they not contact the leather seats at any time and that you must be responsible for cleaning any mess and all hair.
  • How can I find nearby charging stations?
    The Leaf navigation system will list and navigate you to nearby charging stations. Just press the blue “e” button. It is advisable to plan routes with your available miles remaining or with multiple stations on the way just in case one is unavailable. PlugShare is a free app on Android and IOS that lets users write reviews and tips for each station. It is good to use when selecting stations near your home or on your route. 3 types of stations: L3, orange in PlugShare (see photo), 440V. These are free on our account cards. Puts in 2 miles per minute. Malls that have them include Scottsdake Fashion Square, Chandler Fashion Center, AZ Mills, Biltmore, San Tan Village. Shell west of airport also has one. L2, 220V, green in PlugShare, puts in 25 miles per hour. These are abundant. Almost every one is free using our account cards. Fuel is free on our account but you arexresponsible for any extended parking fees. Stations that have them should give you prior notice. L1, 110V, blue in PlugShare. These are not listed in the car's navy system. Most are at private homes willing to share. You should be polite in making arrangements and being part of the PlugShare community. Cost on their electric bill us 10 cents/hr. For you, it is 2.5 cents/mile at that rate if you need to pay. Some sharers charge nothing, and some users pay double for the convenience. These are also called opportunity chargers. When we deliver the car to you, you should try to have a plug ready for us to test where you can park your car. Nothing else should be on the circuit. If it does not work then you are welcome to immediately return the car and pay only the delivery fee.

David is the best person to rent from. He is so informative about electric cars. His car drives very nice. It’s the perfect car for doing local driving.

Nice car, my first Turo and first electric car. David explain everything about charging, range, etc. Interesting experience.

David is a great host and this Nissan Leaf is a remarkable little car. I want one now. Feels like our Tesla, but its smaller and not as fast, but definitely smooth, tight, comfortable and good build quality and not cost for charging up!. Range is only about 80 miles but for me that was no issue since my use was all local. David has owned it for 3 years and can teach you all you need to have a good experience with it. Download the free PlugShare app to see where you can charge up and you're on your way. David will pick you up at the airport and drop you back off there for a fee. Leave a little more time to get familiar with the car and ensure it has a full charge at the nearest high speed charging station.

David was very helpful in getting me situated with the basics of driving and refueling an electric car, and the Leaf drove beautifully! Can't recommend highly enough, if you're driving locally.

David was great with outstanding communication and consideration when the electric car option wouldn't meet my needs. I recommend him as an honest and responsive provider.
