Description
NOTE: If you need a rental car to go out of town or on a vacation, an "All Electric, Plug In" car (such as this Mercedes electric drive, our white Nissan LEAF or our silver SPARK EV) is probably NOT the right car for you.

Typically, "All-electric" plug-in cars are rented by people who just need a "get around town" or "errand" car (because it can only go 90 miles between charges*).

If what you need is a "vacation" or "out of town" rental car, our 2017 and 2014 Chevy VOLT's are "range extended" (gasoline/electric hybrid) cars and will accommodate you perfectly. (And they get more than 85 MPG!)

However, if what you need to rent today is a beautiful, FAST, elegant, whisper quiet, easy to operate luxury vehicle for a hot date (or just get to and from work for a few days) and you know you'll be driving less than 90 miles a day, the Mercedes Benz B Class Electric is AMAZING. It's like driving a ROLEX watch. You'll LOVE it!

This is the very first Mercedes I've ever owned (I've always been a LEXUS fan) and now Mercedes is all time my favorite vehicle. This Mercedes is also the FASTEST, and the sportiest vehicle we have! It's powered from a TESLA powertrain! (Yes. you read that right). IT IS FAST! (Subsequently, you must be at least 25 years old to rent this vehicle).

The MERCEDES electric's biggest advantages are that it's PURE Mercedes Benz / TESLA engineering, it still has HUGE savings (because you won't spend a dime in gas) it's VERY zippy, (it's actually the fastest, most powerful car I've ever owned) it's WHISPER quiet, it's almost brand spanking new (less than 9,000 miles!) it's built like a tank so it's VERY safe -- and best of all -- I have obsessive compulsive disorder. (This means your car is ALWAYS flawlessly hand detailed, waxed and maintained. This is why my cars are the most popular TURO cars in Fresno. I BABY them.)

In my opinion, the Mercedes Electric holds the title of "World's most perfect second family car". It's unbelievably comfortable, solid, luxurious -- and because there's no gas engine, spark plugs, fuel injections systems, or transmission it will stay in the family for DECADES and probably never need anything but tires and brakes!

The Mercedes has the longest range of all our all electric plug in cars ~ and it drives, handles and accelerates like "Pure Mercedes Benz". This is my all time favorite of all five of our cars and it's the one I spend the most time in myself.

*If you utilize one of the several local, Fresno DC Fast Charging Stations, it only takes three hours to fully recharge this Mercedes. Or, if you prefer you can just do an "overnight" charge with the supplied granny charge cable that plugs into any typical 110V household outlet. That's how I charge it myself.

Parking details
Your car will always be vacuumed, washed, detailed with love and ready to be picked up (or returned) at our North Fresno parking lot at the exact times and dates you've requested when you booked your trip.

I understand people and weather are unpredictable so I'm very accommodating with (almost) any requests, changes or special accommodations when submitted using the TURO application. All texts, requests, trip modifications, etc. must be sent using the TURO application.
Delivery details
You can either provide your own transportation to get you to and from our parking lot (in North Fresno) or you can use our delivery service and we'll provide a shuttle service back and forth to our lot from your chosen address. We provide this service both at the start and end of your trip.

When you choose our delivery service we arrange and pay for a shuttle to pick you up at "guest's chosen location" which will take you directly to your TURO car at our parking lot. (That's when we hand you the key unless you opt for a self-delivery). Our shuttle will also take you home when you return your car at the end of your trip.

If you choose not to use our delivery service you will need to arrange for your own transportation to our North Fresno parking lot where we we'll meet you with the key. The parking lot address is given to you when you book your trip.

All you need to do (if you decide to use our delivery service) is simply text the word SHUTTLE when you're ready to be picked up (you must use the text messaging feature in the TURO application). We'll take care of the rest. When it's time to return your car at the end of your trip just text SHUTTLE again.

Additionally, we also provide a "self-delivery" service. With our self-delivery service, you can either provide your own transportation to and from our lot or use our delivery service. Here's how to do a "self delivery""

1) Text the word SELF to the vehicle owner (me) using the TURO application
2) You'll receive a confirmation text fifteen (15) minutes prior to your trip start time containing any specific instructions necessary to locate your car.
3) When you arrive at your car, (using the TURO "shared trip photos") upload a "selfie" photo (holding your driver's license next to your face with the car in the background) and an additional photo of your driver's license.
4) Upon receipt, access to your car and key will be performed remotely. Once you have access to your car you can complete your trip checklist and begin your trip!

Moving your car from its parking space prior to completing your trip checklist may result in your vehicle being temporarily disabled remotely. To prevent any delays to your trip please do not attempt to move your vehicle from its stall (or place the vehicle in "D" (Drive) or "R" (Reverse) until after you have completed your trip checklist in the TURO application.

Self delivery service requests require you to download the TURO application onto your smartphone. Self delivery service requests must be made no later than 60 minutes prior to your trip start time. Even if you choose the self-delivery option you will still be required to meet a representative at our parking lot at the end of your trip when you return your car.
FAQs
Can I go out of town or on a vacation with this Mercedes B Class Electric Drive?
Yes. You can travel to numerous places within California and some surrounding states by "hopping" from one charging station to another -- but I do NOT recommend this. Such a trip requires an enormous amount of planning and strategizing and would not be very much fun in my opinion. It was challenging enough just getting home from the dealer 200 miles away.
