Highly recommend renting my 500e as a way to test drive the 500e/experience an electric car.
Reasons why this car is awesome and you should try it:
+ Loaded with options (Navigation, Leatherette Seats, Parking Sensors, Auto Climate Control)
+ All electric! (Parked in a garage with easy charging)
+ Super speedy (Electric = Max torque from a stop)
+ Plenty of trunk space with the seats down (Recommend 2 people or less when grabbing stuff, putting the rear seats down gives a lot of vertical room)
+ Compact but fits 2 adults and 2 children (2 adults can fit in back too, but not happily!)
+ Easy to Park (fits in spots other cars can't use, has rear parking sensors too)
A full charge nets 80-100 miles. 100 miles for local-only driving and 80 miles or less for highway-only driving (less if speeding; yup the car is more efficient in the city!)
Using an EV charger (level 2) takes about 4 hours from completely empty to full (20-25 miles added per hour; ~25%/hr). Using a standard wall socket (120V) takes 24 hrs from completely empty to full (3-4 miles added hour; ~4%/hr).
\\Included with the car//
- 120V Charger
- Air Compressor (in the trunk, includes tire goop in case of a flat tire)
