Awesome 0-30Mph acceleration. Beat almost everyone off the line with instant acceleration!
***NOTE*** - This car has an ~80mile range between charges and you must be aware of this when renting. There are many charging opportunities in the bay. If range is a concern, please contact me before renting. Charging is generally 1/2-1/4 as expensive as gas, but requires a bit more diligence. You can also charge overnight on 120v outlet and be full every morning!
My experience with the Nissan Leaf was very valuable. An EV takes a slightly different mindset to effectively operate, and it was good to see the pros and cons.
Definitely make sure your phone supports the chargepoint or blink app, and then it should be fine.
Ashley was wonderful and I appreciate his promptness and great personality. Would be five stars, except... the Leaf has 80'ish miles of charge... which is fine unless you have to deal with traffic and hills. If you aren't going into San Fran, DEFINITELY a good ride.
For San Fran trips, I would definitely take a gas car or a train next time... or an EV with over 100 miles of range.
Ashley was great, and he gave me some great tips on how to operate the EV without frustration. I didn't listen closely enough.
