Cyber gray metallic, 36-50 miles on a full 11kWh charge (depends heavily on how you accelerate, brake, and spend time at highway speeds). Has an internal combustion engine to extend it's range to 380 miles on a full tank of premium gas. Fully electric drivetrain means no shift shock like a traditional transmission and no issues with a complicated CVT like many other hybrid cars. A truly unique driving experience. Comfortable cloth seats. Front and rear 12V "cigarette lighter style" plug-ins for phone chargers and USB plug-in for your music device. The gas engine averages around 45 mpg at city speeds (<45mph) and about 37mpg at highway speeds (>65mph). 120V standard 3-prong plug-in charger hides under cargo area so you can charge anywhere you can find an outlet (charges at around 3mph or 14 hours for a full charge). Use the Plugshare app to find free charging stations in the Indy area! I do ask that all renters who elect to refuel the vehicle themselves get a receipt from each gas station used that shows premium fuel (91 octane or higher) was used to keep the engine from knocking later on.

2013 Chevrolet VoltShelby's Volt1554
This was my first drive in an electric car and it was a pure joy. Smooth, fuel efficient trip.
Shelby, the owner of the car & a fellow boilermaker made sure I knew everything and had everything I needed for this trip. He went out of his way to pick me up from the airport and gave a detailed intro to the car and the workings of it. On my way back to his place he looked up and sent me the cheapest gas stations on my way.
Great car & an amazing owner. If I’m in the area again, definitely renting from Shelby again, wonderful experience.
First off, if you haven't driven an electric car before you are missing out. This car is amazing in so many different ways. The 4 different drive modes give you everything you could need as a driver. From fuel efficiency, to speed, Eco friendly, and all the many interior features it has to offer; it was quite a delight.
As for its owner, Shelby is one heck of a guy. He took the time to show me everything I needed to know about the car before my trip began. He was completely understanding and flexible with the times of both picking up the car and returning it. He had the car fully charged with a full tank of gas. Which meant plenty of free miles for me and money I got to save. He was even kind enough to take me 20 minutes to my next Turo vehicle, where he then ensured everything was set up and I wasn't stranded before he left. It was a pleasure to have met Shelby and I am incredibly thankful for all he did.
