If you're in the market for an electric car, this is a great and hassle free way to test drive and experience one of the best on the market right now without the sales pressure of salesmen or dealerships. Or, if you just want to cruise around locally enjoying the instant torque without using a drop of gas, this is great and fun way to do so.
Gets around 70+ miles off a full charge, depending on driving style and speed. I would suggest using local streets as opposed to highways to maximize range. Also, download the PlugShare app to find local charging stations wherever you are.
This vehicle is loaded with navigation, bluetooth, auto climate control, xenon headlights, heated front, rear seats and steering wheel, usb plug and is deceptively spacious. Seating for five adults. Huge and deep trunk space.
*Also has HOV stickers so you can ride solo on freeways*
Best option is the Quick Charge (Chademo) port, which you can charge the car from 0 to 80% battery in about 30 minutes. (Use the PlugShare app to locate Quick Charge stations). Most Nissan dealerships will allow you to use their QC stations free!
Vehicle comes with a charger so you can charge with any outlet overnight. A public level 2 charger takes about 4 hours from zero to full, 25% an hour, while a regular standard outlet (level 1) is about 6% an hour.
Feel free to ask about any other features or tips!
*No smoking or pets permitted inside vehicle* A cleaning fee will be imposed if evidence is found.

Flying in from out of town? Use an Uber from the airport to my location for free! We do not deliver (as doing so will diminish the useable range/battery). Use my code for a free first ride: sbj8w
What if the battery is really low and I can't get home or to where I need to go?
You should always plan your trip accordingly and make sure you have enough range to get to where you're going. If the battery reaches around 20%, a low battery indicator will alert and you should look for the nearest available charge station (if you're not close to home). If the battery dies, it will require towing to a nearby station at your expense.
What's the easiest way to charge the car?
By using the included charger overnight in your garage or driveway (can use an extension cord). You can plug it any time also to top it off. If you're going to do less than 70 miles a day, this is the best option.
You can also use any available public charge stations (level 2 & 3). Find it in the PlugShare and Charge Point apps. Some are free, some you have to pay for, although it is usually cheap. You can use any major credit card at the terminal, call the customer service number or download the app.
