2/22/17 UPDATE: Remote unlock and lock services have been enabled, which means I don't have to be there anymore for car pickup or return! This makes coordinating the rental very easy and convenient for both of us. Early pick up and late drop off are no problem!
10/16/16 UPDATE: Just got the green HOV decals so you can go solo in the carpool lanes!
Want to experience the future? Come drive my BMW i3! Carbon fiber. Futuristic interior. Made with sustainable materials. Go kart handling. Strong acceleration. Most advanced car on the planet right now.
The i3 has an all-electric range of approx. 75 miles. I charge the i3 at home with a solar panel system. Clean energy. You can return it with a full battery, empty battery, or anywhere in between, no extra charge!
The i3 also has a range extender engine (1.9 gallon gas tank) to reduce or even eliminate range anxiety. It only kicks in once the battery reaches 6% so you can rest assured you'll be driving on clean energy for the majority of your trip. Gives you another 75 miles to get you to a charger or back to drop it off. I just ask that you bring it back with a full tank (only 2 gallons!).
Believe me, this car will change your perception of what future mobility could be like. It has such a striking design, both interior and exterior, that leave a lasting impression. You will smile when you return to the parked i3 and you will be sad to drop it off :)

Elmer was great to rent from. He made pick up and drop off easy. Great communication the whole way through.
Elmer was a great host who really loves the i3. If you are renting one because you are thinking of going electric I highly recommend doing it with Elmer. He is happy to explain the car and all the technology involved. Thanks Elmer!
Awesome first Turo trip. Elmer showed me around the cool features of the BMW i3 when we took it for a spin and gave me little tips & tricks. The car was just washed and a blast to drive, you would never expect it. Elmer was super friendly and stayed after to chat with my buddy and I about getting an i3 for myself. Great experience.
Elmer was perfect with communication, very flexible with arrangements, and incredibly friendly. The car was spotless, and Elmer walked me through everything I needed to know about features when I picked up the car, then checked in a day into the rental to make sure I was happy and had all the info I needed. This was a perfect introduction to Turo.
Wow! This was an awesome first Turo experience and Elmer made it super easy and comfortable. I rented the vehicle from Tuesday-Friday and truly enjoyed it! To start Elmer was very accommodating and pleasant to communicate with. The vehicle was awesome I even want one myself now! I rented the vehicle because I never drove an EV vehicle and figured the savings would offset the rental cost and cosmetic work I was getting done to my vehicle. The savings are great! I drove 250 miles which would've cost me $45 in GAS but it only cost me $7 in electricity and $2 in GAS! WOW! Would definitely do this again! Thanks Elmer!
