This slick black ride turns heads wherever it goes! With only 2,928 ever produced, this rare find will really get you noticed. Maybe it's because of the "SWIPE R" license plate?
Inside, you'll find incredibly luxurious interior seating for 2+2 (just beware the back is a bit tight!) Fully loaded with navigation, traffic, Sirius XM radio, massive 20" wheels, heated seats/steering, automatic headlights/wipers, LED lighting, Bluetooth, and three USB ports for charging and playing music on the incredible Bose sound system with active noise cancellation. The hybrid powertrain is directly powered by an electric motor, meaning you'll get Tesla-style instant torque.

Since the car is a plug-in hybrid, does it need to be charged?
The charging cord is kept in the trunk and can be plugged into any standard electrical outlet. But don't worry, the car doesn't need to be charged because it still gets about 33 mpg when using premium gasoline alone.
This car is cool, but not for mountainous drives. It slowed down on the grapevine and I had to pull off the road. I had to call Bart to figure out how to get it going again, I didn't know I needed to have it in mountain mode (so, maybe user error?), but I had to drive 50MPH through the rest of the Grapevine incline in the slow lane with the flashers on. It wasn't charged when I picked it up, and it wasn't clean on the outside, and the gas tank was half full. Also, the gas tank only holds 8-gallons, so I had to fill up 6 times going to LA and back. Minor things, and Bart made up for it with his flexibility on timing (I was a bit late dropping it off). All in all, this is not a long range car, I would recommend renting it for more local driving, and wouldn't take it in the mountains. It does look very cool though, and the license plate says "Swipe R."
The owner cancelled this trip last minute. This message was automatically posted by Turo.

Bart was very friendly and easy to work with, flexible with time of pick up and drop off. Car was clean inside and out, as enjoyable as possible, and comfortable for the road trip we took. Would rent barts car again
