2014 Tesla Model STesla Model S15413
The car was great. Although we had previously made plans for 7:00am, they were 15-20 mins late meeting me for pickup. I had been clear I needed the car early to drive to the other side of the island. This delay caused me to miss my tee time, which caused me to have to wait around for an hour to be paired with another group. I found this to be very unprofessional on their part.
Awesome rental! The tesla is a very FUN car to drive especially if youve never driven an electric car or a tesla. The pickup and drop off was really simple and hands down beats going to a traditional rental car agency. Lena was really easy and prompt to deal with thru in-app message and thru txt. Will definitely return to rent this tesla again!
Lena had advertised her Tesla Model S as having 210 miles of range in her listing. I was having it delivered to me, so I wasn't expecting it to have more than 160 or 180 miles of range. When the Model S was delivered (30 minutes late no less) it only had 80 miles of range left. We were only renting it for the day, so we didn't have enough time to charge it to have sufficient range for the trip we had planned to the north shore and Ko Olina. In messages I exchanged with Lena before the rental, she said it came with a DC CHAdeMO adapter. It did not. It only had a J1172 charging adapter, which can only add 14 miles of range per hour.
After I received the car I messaged and called Lena, but it took over 4 hours for her to reply back. She then claimed the car was only capable of 160 miles (she has since removed anything about range in her description), and she also said that I should be able to add 40 miles of range over lunch (which wasn't possible without a DC fast charge adapter). She owns a fleet of cars and should stick to renting out gas cars, because she clearly is misinformed about the Model S or electric cars / charging in general.
We had a limited amount of time on our vacation in Oahu, and we lost a whole day having to cancel our plans because of this terrible rental experience. The Tesla Model S is a great car, unfortunately this is a terrible owner.
The car was nice, clean and fully charged. Really nice in general. Why I only give three stars is because of (mis)communication:
1) After booking (three days in advance of the rental), I asked Lena some clarifying questions regarding the dropoff/pickup. The E-mail confirmation I got both stated that the car would be delivered and that I had to take an Uber to their location and pick up the car. After a ping I finally got an answer on Midnight before the rental started. At that point I was uncertain whether I would have the car or not. Not a good experience (furthermore the phone number is not worth much as it goes directly to a full voice mail).
2) The driver delivering the car was friendly and nice, but did not know the car at all. We went once around the car, we got the keys, and then he drove off. In other words we did not get a proper introduction to the car, where information like "alarm will go off, if somebody is in the car and the driver leaves with the key" would be valuable. The Tesla was furthermore set to use kilometers and not miles.
Excellent cheryl was so nice and wonderful i had a problem with the sun roof . I had a problem with finding a charging stationbecause there was a leaf camped out at over 11 differant location and it takes over 24 hours for full charge if you plug it in at home but if you got a hotel or a apartment haha your S out of luck
Car is fantastic. Immaculately clean. Lena's drivers (both drop off and pickup - Marcelino) were very polite & helpful. Our flight was delayed and so we wanted to slightly extend the rental and Lena was very flexible
If you haven't driven one of these cars but want to, I'd thoroughly recommend contacting Lena and making it part of your holiday. It was a highlight of mine!
Lena's assistants dropped the car off and picked it up without any problem. Car is very clean and absolutely worth renting. The only reason for 4 stars is that the car was only charged half way, which forced me to adjust my plans. The free Volta charging stations around the island charge it really quickly.
