All electric vehicle (EV). Hatchback. 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.

And you can return it at any EV charging station within 25 miles of your pickup spot, with any level of fuel remaining above 10%, if you start it charging with the cable locked and you lock all 4 doors with all returned items inside and notify us of the exact address.

Parking details
You can return the car free to the same garage if you let us know to buy a prepaid parking pass and tell the garage attendant that parking is pre-paid. Otherwise, there is a public charging station across the street (find details in the free PlugShare app).

It is also free to return at any public or private charging station in our area (we recommend hotels with EV stations and free airport shuttles).

We also offer emergency out-of-fuel returns. If you are unlucky enough to have the fuel go below 8% full, where the gauge shows only "--%", and then happen to use all that up before arriving at a station, the car will tell you in a female voice, "Power is limited", and a turtle icon will appear in the middle of the display panel. The car slows down and gives you about 1/2 mile to find safe parking.

At that point, you can ask Turo Roadside assistance if they will fast charge the car or tow the car to a nearby open charging station that you choose using the free PlugShare app or the car nav, or to a Nissan dealer that has a charging station.

You also have the option of returning the car there. Your refund will be offset by anything Turo charges us and any days already used. Please use the return procedure listed below. We will retrieve it as quickly as possible, and if you are still waiting in a safe location, then we can usually give you a short ride, or a ride in our direction, if you assist in steering the EV while being slowly towed.

You should follow a checklist when returning the car. We provide an incentive for returning the car charged or charging and following the following instructions explicitly. If you succeed, then your fuel will be free for your entire trip. If we find any item missing then you will charged all your actual fuel charges on your trip. Free stations and your own charging arrangements not on our account will still be free, of course.

1. If you return at the same spot, tell us at least 4 hours in advance to buy you a parking pass. Please tell the garage attendant that parking is pre-paid. If you choose a different garage, then we will charge you whatever we pay to retrieve the car, for up to 4 hours of parking. Note, most public stations have free parking.

2. Share any photos you deem important to prove lack of damage or extent of damage (we will do the same when we retrieve the car).

3. Set the plug lock to left of steering wheel on LOCK to prevent theft of the $975 cable.

4. Plug in the cable and assure that the car is charging (exactly one of the three dash lights blinking).

5. Return all items checked out to you to the hatchback floor. You may want to share a photo. Car key. ALL charging cards. User guides. Tire pump. Outdoor extension cord. Waterproof cord cover. Parking ticket to exit the garage (if you got one).

6. Before locking all 5 doors, it is important to check everything thoroughly.

(If you accidentally leave anything outside the car, then you can return it to us in a way that prevents loss, but we reserve the right to charge you if we do not find it and the right to not give you the free fuel incentive, especially if it is the car key or we have to spend time retrieving it.)

7. Once everything is checked, lock all 5 doors by opening the driver door and using the lock doors button on the door handle. Close the door and test all 5 doors to assure they are locked.

8. Text us through Turo that you have returned the car with the key in it, giving a nearby street address and a reasonable description of the actual location of the car.

The car is deemed returned at the time stamp of that message only if the car has been physically returned at that location at that time, even if it is later found inoperable or with a missing key or parts, for which compensation will be sought from you and insurance companies, jointly.
Delivery details
We will pick you up at your terminal if you give us your flight number in advance and stay in close contact.

Or we will meet you at your exact reservation time at any charging station in free PlugShare app within 20 miles of Airport or east of I-17 and inside Loop 101 and Loop 202.
You must be responsible for all damage and cleaning. Insurance will cover accidents but it will not cover interior damage or loss of the 110V charging cable. Replacement by Nissan is $965. To keep it safe, you have several options:
1. Leave it with us (not recommended in case you need it unexpectedly). To get our emergency recharge service, you will need to keep it with you and attempt to use it).
2. Take it inside with you.
3. Always lock the car.
4. When charging, a switch to the left of steering wheel has OFF, AUTO, and LOCK. For the cable, LOCK is best. At public stations the other settings will allow an adjacent car to use the connector at will (OFF), or when your car is fully charged (AUTO).

Leather seats require special care. You must avoid all contact with food or liquid or animals. We have repair insurance but you must reimburse us the $50 deductible if covered and the full documented cost if they do not cover it.

If you should experience a food accident, you may be able to reduce the damage by applying water very evenly across the entire seat surface, scrubbing, and drying very thotmroughly and quickly.
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.
What should I expect as a first-time driver of an all-electric car (EV)?
EVs are much different than gas cars in several key areas: 1. They handle better and accelerate at full torque. You should be extra careful on turns while you are getting used to the fast acceleration. 2. They do not create carbon emissions while driving. 3. They have limited range. This car gets about 50 miles when driven at 45 mph. About 40 miles at 65 mph. Only 25 if you speed on freeways over 70 (please do not speed as a regular habit). 4. To give you even more re-assurance, you can return the car early at any EV charging station. 5. You are allowed to use HOV lanes and city carpool parking spaces with no passengers at all hours. You also get preferred parking at some shopping malls while charging. 6. This car is ideal for people driving less than 50 miles from a plug at home and back home (such as a private hoodie or townhome or an AirBnB carport or garage. Cost is 10 cents per hour on the electric bill). You will also get far more total range if you are willing to wait while it recharges for free at over 200 free recharging stations using our easy-to-use account cards in metro Phoenix including popular rest areas like shopping malls and some hotels, as shown in the free PlugShare app.
How can I find nearby charging stations?
The Leaf navigation system will list and navigate you to nearby charging stations. Just presstge blue e button. It is advisable to plan routes with your available miles remaining or with multiple stations on the way 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.
How much is electricity or charging?
See the station types in another FAQ. L3s are free on our account, Normally, they cost $3-$6 per hour with subscriptions. L2s are almost all (none known that are not) free on our account or free for all users. Normal fees are $0.80 to $2.40 per hour. Most are automated but some have restricted hours or other considerations such as please ask the hotel or car dealer before using. They are usually pretty hospitable. L1s cost the electric account holder 10 cents/min. That is 2.5 cents per mile. Some offer them free, others receive donations. Some users are willing to pay double to try an EV the first time. If you are guests in a house or townhome such as with atrelarias or at an AirBNB, you may be able to reserve a parking space next to a 110V outlet.
