Experience the future. Like new 2014 i3. I have three of these awesome EVs. Rent from the most popular Turo i3 owner in LA- perhaps even in the country!
-Fully loaded! Every available option! $55,500 sticker.
-Includes range extender in case you run out of juice. Please plan accordingly, car gets 55-80 miles realistic EV range and 50-60 gas range.
1) Absolutely no smoking, food or colored liquids. Water is OK.
2) Try to bring back with at least a 50% charge; OK if you can't as its not always tenable with current infrastructure.
3) Car will be washed and vacuumed prior to each rental; cleaning fee of $250 will be charged if vehicle is particularly dirty.
4) Please don't be late unless you make prior arrangements. Turo late fee of $50 per hour (up-to 3X daily fee) plus $25 admin fee will be charged.
Q; How many miles can I realistically drive per charge?
A: 75-80 miles if you drive gingerly, 60-65 miles if you drive sporty.
Q: What happens when I run out of electricity?
A: The car will automatically switch to the gas generator and run for another 50-60 miles on the small 1.6 gallon tank. Once the tank is depleted, the car will stop unless you fill up another 1.6 gallons or charge the battery.
Q: Where can I charge the i3?
A: Please download the plugshare and Chargepoint apps to study chargers in your area. Socal has plenty but you need to plan a bit!
Estimated charging time:
Level 1 (120 volt): 8-12 hours
Level 2 (240 volt): 3-5 hours
Level 3 (480 volt, NRG DC Fast Charger): 20 min to 80%; 2 hours to 100%
How many miles can you drive on pure electricity?
65-80 if you drive gingerly.
What happens when the car runs out of electricity?
It will automatically turn on the generator and run on gas for another 40-45 miles. The car will stop unless the gas is refilled.

Nik picked us up at the airport -- way better than a shuttle. Showed us the car and its special features. (Don't try speeding on the highway uphill when on range extender.) Way also flexible on drop off. Car is loaded -- including nav -- and lots of fun to drive. It really drives like a BMW.
Nik has several cars he rents and thus really knows what he is doing. It shows. Thank you Nik.
