Please plan to return the i3 with at least 80% charge remaining and a full tank of gas (91 octane w/receipts). There are several chargers near both my Century City and Westwood locations.
Returning the car with less than 80% charge remaining will be subject to reimbursement request for cost of charging if low charge level affects the next rental period.
No smoking/eating/colored liquids, water is ok.
Pets highly discouraged. If you have a pet in the car, please return the car clean and free from any pet hair.
How far can I drive?
-This i3 has both full electric and hybrid gas (range extender) modes. You get 65-80 miles of electric range on full charge, depending on driving style and conditions and 60-70 miles in gas mode. So, 135-150 miles total. After that, you can either charge the car or refill the 1.9 gallon gas tank.
-Please note that the i3 shouldn't be operated in range extender gas mode for long periods of time. A few fill ups w/o charge at a time is fine, but the car will need to be charged after that.
Where do I charge?
-Plenty of Level 2 public chargers throughout LA, especially on the west side and Santa Monica.
-Please download the PlugShare app (www.plugshare.com) to ensure you can find public Level 2 chargers.
-I will include cards for Chargepoint charging, which you're welcome to use during your rental. I do ask for reimbursement through Turo for any associated charging fees.
-You can also download the ChargePoint and Blink Network apps if you'd like to setup your own account.
-There is also a free public DC Fast Charger (20 mins to 80% charge) down the street from my location in Westwood that you can use prior to returning the car and/or anytime during your rental period if you're in the area. There are also other DC Fast Chargers throughout LA that can be found through the PlugShare app.
How long does it take to charge?
-Charges at 25 miles/hr (2.5-3 hrs for 0 to full charge) on Level 2 240V chargers, including public charging stations all throughout LA.
-Charges to 80% full in 20 mins at DC Fast Charger.
-Can also be charged from a standard grounded 120V outlet at rate of approx 5 miles/hr (12-15 hrs for 0 to full charge). I recommend this if you have access to an exterior outlet and can charge the i3 overnight.
-There are several free public chargers in Westwood Village, Westwood Recreation Center and at the electric company building near my Westwood pickup/drop-off location as well as public, pay for use, chargers in Century City.

The car was amazing and definitely the way to go in LA traffic! I really appreciate everything Loren did in the short notice I gave in booking the car but that did not change the great level of service I received. Definitely would use Loren again if I were returning to LA.
