Description

The Nissan LEAF is 100% electric. That means no gas. None! So forget about the cost of a gallon, and say hello to freedom from the pump. The electric motor is powered exclusively by an advanced lithium-ion battery with an average range of 80 miles on a full charge (it takes 2-3 hours to charge at 240-volt). *Priority parking in Santa Monica allows you to park in any on-street, metered parking space without charge for the maximum amount of time allowed by that meter. Silver metallic exterior & tan clothe interior. Fully loaded. Upgraded sound system | Bluetooth Audio & Aux. Non-smoking vehicle. - GPS Navigation - Bluetooth Audio - Automatic transmission - LED high-efficiency headlights - Key-less smart system CHARGING STATIONS Charging stations by the hundreds are springing up all over LA. They’re usually located in electric-vehicle-only parking stalls. Santa Monica public charging stations are FREE (see picture attached). It also comes standard with a 110-volt charger that plugs into any regular outlet. ** AVAILABILITY Car is available in Santa Monica (parking structure #6 w/free charging stations) or in Marina del Rey, conveniently located less than 15 minutes from LAX. *** CLEANING Please remember that this is a car share and not a car rental. The car must be returned in the same condition as you received it. Mud, dirt, sand, food particles, beverage spills, or similar will result in a cleaning fee.

I loved driving this electric car! Virginia was quick to respond and great with communication. Her husband is very nice as well. The car is super clean and drives very nice. It's an amazing feeling going down the road knowing you aren't using gas AT ALL!! It has a lot of great features and comfortably fit my two kids in car seats in the back seat. The seats in this car are so comfortable. The trunk space is sufficient for groceries as well. It would be best, if you plan you rent this car, to download a couple apps. Virginia's husband was very good at explaining about the car and answering my questions. He also told me about the app "plugshare" which lists all the charging stations on a map. You might also want to download "chargepoint" it is used at many charge stations. I plugged in at about 7 miles to go, left it for 4 hours charging (app gave me live info) and drove away with almost full battery and paid $2.78. Car not meant for long distance, plan your errands in advance and everything will work out great!

This was my first rental through RR and I can say that it was a success! Virginia was awesome to deal with, very communicative and responsive. My flight was delayed and I arrived into LAX super late, but she was there curbside with the LEAF. It was also my first time driving an EV. The LEAF was clean and Virginia explained how it all worked. I'd say this car is definitely not for everyone. It's biggest limitation is it range between charges. If you only have small trips to make, maybe 50 miles at the most between charges, this car can work for you. I was fortunate enough to have a 220 charging station where I was staying, but had I not I feel like this might had been a different experience. The car handles great, and is surprisingly zippy and has great pickup. It's really fun to drive, and does great in start-stop traffic, not so great on the highway for the battery. Kind of the opposite of an internal combustion engine. Bottom line, rent from Virginia when you're in LA!
