How do I know how much charge I have left?
A gauge is located on the right of the dashboard, 75 miles is 100% charge. If you have 30 miles left please keep in mind this is an approximation. To maximize the range it is best to turn off the AC and drive in ECO mode. If the car is not automatically in ECO mode just shift into "D" a second time to bring it into ECO. The BEST feature is that the car will recharge itself anytime you are coasting or going downhill.
What is driving an electric car like?
Electric cars are fun to drive with instant torque and the effortless, nearly silent, super efficient power of electric motors. Going electric is now the cool thing to do. Akon, Steph Curry, Oprah, Ben Affleck, Don Cheadle, James Cameron, Cameron Diaz, Beyonce & Jay Z, Morgan Freeman, Anthony Kiedas, Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Steven Spielberg, and a bunch of other celebrities now drive Electric.
How do I charge the electric car?
Home charging is done easily with any 120v plug. The car is equipped with everything you need to recharge. In the trunk you will find x2 50ft extension cords and the car charging plug. EV charging stations are located on island. Download the EV Hawaii app or go to:
Where are the EV charging stations and how much does it cost?
There are over 20 EV charging stations and majority of them are free. A few spots have restrictions or use a paid app such as OpConnect or Blink Download the EV Hawaii app or go to: Here you will find the details of each station and whether or not payment is necessary
How far can I go on a single charge?
This car has a 75 mile range. This is an approximation and will be affected by driver acceleration, terrain, and A/C usage. Keep in mind the car recharges anytime you are coasting or going downhill (with no acceleration). Driving in ECO mode can increase distance by about 10% Kauai is relatively small. Here are some basic distances: East to North Lihue to Kapaa - 11 miles *20min Kapaa to Princeville - 22 miles *35 min Kapaa to Hanalei - 26 miles *1 hour Princeville to Haena - 12 miles *30 minutes East to West Lihue to Poipu - 13 miles *25 minutes Lihue to Waimea - 25 miles *52 minutes Poipu to Kokee State Park - 36 miles *1 hr 20 minutes (Recommended not to go to Kokee due to lack of charging stations and quick drain of battery due to climb)
How long does it take to charge?
Time to charge an electric car can take as little as 30 minutes or up to 12 hours. The time it takes to charge depends on the size of the battery and the speed of the charging point. A Nissan Leaf electric car takes 12 hours to charge from empty from home outlet or 4 hours at a charge station. - 120v home charger provides about 4 miles per hour of charge. - 220V charge station provides about 18 miles per hour of charge. A rapid charger at The Grand Hyatt can charge your car to full in about 30 minutes and is ideal for long distance journeys. Charging rates can differ based on the ambient temperature, the state of the battery (e.g. empty or half full) and the maximum charging rate of the vehicle. Like your phone if you plan on using it alot throughout the day it is best to stop and do quick charges during a coffee or lunch break.
