Small but mighty....I know you will enjoy this Eco-Friendly, Sporty, Fast & Fun SmartCar for around town trips, daily commutes, or overnight trips in the surrounding area. As gas prices continue to rise, it pays to drive a fully electric vehicle! BONUS #1----You get to use the carpool lane, even if you are driving alone! I call that a win!!! BONUS #2----You can park her almost anywhere! A huge bonus when dealing with downtown/North Park/Hillcrest/Pacific Beach/La Jolla...etc areas. She is about half the size of a standard car, so parallel parking is no longer tedious. Worried about charging??? Don't be! There are charging stations all over San Diego. Some are even FREE! The ones that aren't free are significantly less than what you would spend on gas. Some of the more commonly used charging stations include ChargePoint, PlugShare, and NextCharge. They all have apps for easy payment. Please create a ChargePoint account to recharge her after your trip. ChargePoint chargers are located in the garage of my apartment. It is easy to plug and go and costs less than 3 dollars to recharge. This blue and white baby is basically brand new. She is very lonely most days, since I work from home. She only ever gets to take trips to the grocery store. I think she needs a little more excitement in her life! Please reach out to me with any questions.
