PLEASE READ: This is a 100% Electric, zero Emission Nissan Leaf (will not take gasoline). The Leaf goes about 70-80 miles per charge depending on how fast your are driving and if you are using A/C or heat your mileage will be diminished. Great for getting around San Diego, not great for driving to L.A.
Comes with 110 volt trickle charger that can be plugged into a standard house outlet or charged for free at places like Trader Joes/ Wholefoods Hillcrest, while you shop.
The best way to work this car is it plug it in at night, so it refuels while you are sleeping. This cars battery pack does NOT charge in a 1/2 hour like your cellphone.
From a completely dead battery the Leaf takes between 4-8 hours to charge fully (depending on the level of charger it is plugged into).

Jeremy is a top notch provider! He explained all the nuances of driving an EV (It was my first time) and gave me some helpful tips on how to extend mileage. His Nissan Leaf was very clean, in excellent shape and drove great. If you follow his tips for driving, the car will go pretty far on one charge.
Rented this electric vehicle for a day and it could only take me 35 miles before the battery was drained. It was supposedly on a full charge that should take me 70-80 miles before needing a charge. Nonetheless, I had to find a charging station and let it charge for almost 3 hours before I had enough juice to return the vehicle. I used Uber to get around while the car was charging. Probably would function better for city use, but don't even think about taking this car on the highway unless you're looking to run out of juice in a hurry.
This is a special car, being an electric, so you should be aware of what its quirks and limitations are. It would be most useful for frequent short trips in a limited area rather than for long drives. The miles-to-drive meter can't be all that relied on and charging the car takes longer than you might think. It helps if you live or stay in a place with a good outlet for overnight charging and if you are working somewhere it helps to have a charger where you go. Jeremy is a fine renter, the car was smooth, clean, quiet and peppy enough but you should be aware of the above. I used an app to know where chargers were and I also drove almost exclusively in ECO mode to keep the mileage up.
