We are 5 minutes from LAX!!!!!! This car is an automatic. Take an Uber or taxi from the airport to our house to pick up this amazing car. All black 100% electric Smart Car made by Mercedes Benz. NO NEED TO SPEND ADDITIONAL MONEY ON GAS!!!! This is an awesome ELECTRIC VEHICLE that sits 2 people and has room for your bags in the back trunk area. Max miles per day in one charge is 60-80 miles. I have all the information you need re:charging to be able to drive all around LA with zero issues and zero emissions. Parking is always a breeze because of the size of this car. Any questions at all just call my cell.
It also has a Charge Point card on the key ring that allows you to charge for free at any Charge Point Station. Go to www.chargepoint.com and download the app. Have fun!!!!

Fun car! Definitely have to make sure to plan your routes around charging stations as the average charge lasts a little more than 60-75 miles depending on driving habits but other than that, it is a very efficient car for LA traffic and parking.
The car was perfect. Clean and spacious despite it's small appearance. For guests traveling out of town an all electric vehicle was actually quite bothersome. I ended up planning my vacation around charging points for the car. If you are staying more local this shouldn't be an issue. Todd was a pleasure to work with and he gave a run through of how the vehicle operates when I picked it up! Super nice.
Todd was a great host and made the whole process super easy. The smart car is the perfect car to cruise around LA in. It's very zippy and sweet. I would definitely rent from Todd and a smart car again.
Mostly negatives I'm afraid. You can't drive it on the freeway because the battery runs down extremely quickly. You can't drive it above 30 on normal roads as the battery dies too quickly. Takes far too long to charge. Charging daily (sometimes twice) ended up costing far more than regular gas would. Perks: the parking and quiet engine. Wouldn't rent again.
