2012 Volt in excellent condition! I keep it at work in Sunnyvale. I'm about 10 minutes from the San Jose Airport (SJC) and can deliver the car there or within a short radius with advanced notice and a ride back to work. No charge for this service if planned in advance. Super cold air conditioning for these hot summer days. Fast electric heating and seat heaters for "cold" winter nights.
Up to 40 electric miles are free since I keep the car charged. Once the battery is depleted, the car automatically switches to gas so you can go as far as you want without worrying about the battery. Mileage on gasoline is about 35mpg so it's pretty efficient even if you drive it without charging the battery back up. But if you do, you'll have another ~40 miles of gas free driving at little to no cost.
Car comes with charger you can plug in at home or at many charging stations across the SF Bay Area (for a complete map of charging stations see http://www.chargepoint.net/). Many chargers are free but you can use my card at any Chargepoint station at my expense! Download the Plugshare and Chargepoint apps before you pick up and you will be able to find all the charging stations in the area.
Car comes with HOV green stickers that enable you to drive in car pool lanes solo.
SiriusXM satellite radio is active so you can listen to sports, Howard Stern, etc.
The car is also equipped with OnStar emergency services for additional security and help.
Easy to use in-dash GPS is up to date.
About the Chevy Volt:
The Chevrolet Volt is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle manufactured by General Motors.
The Volt is the most fuel-efficient compact car with a gasoline engine sold in the United States, as rated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The Volt operates as a pure battery electric vehicle until its plug-in battery capacity drops to a predetermined threshold from full charge, at which point its gasoline engine powers an electric generator to extend the vehicle's range. The Volt's regenerative braking also contributes to the on-board electricity generation. In order to further improve energy efficiency, the internal combustion engine may at times be linked mechanically to assist its traction motor to propel the Volt.
The Chevrolet Volt has won numerous awards such as the 2009 Green Car Vision Award, 2011 Green Car of the Year, 2011 North American Car of the Year, 2011 World Green Car and 2012 European Car of the Year.

Toby was an absolute pleasure to deal with and his Volt was amazing!!!! I had never experienced an electric car before, and this was a wonderful first experience. The car is super clean and smooth, and it was amazing to realize how far you could go without having to ever stop for gas! Toby's kindness and flexibility made the experience that much more amazing! If and when I am ever without a car again, I would rent again from Toby in a heartbeat!
This car is great! Highly recommend. I was hesitant because it was a little more than I wanted to spend on a weekend rental, but the car was really smooth, especially when going up and down hilly San Francisco. Very spacious, and Toby is flexible in his meet up time and location. Plus you can charge the car so you won't even have to worry about gas.. awesome!
