This is the greenest car that has ever been mass produced. It Is also seriously fun and easy to drive.
Heated steering wheel.
Heated front AND rear seats.
No fuel charges
Rear view back-up camera
USB plugin to recharge your phone or play your music.
Can sync your phone hands-free
Always extremely clean.
Free car washes at Scrub a Dub- not that you'll need it, but I have a monthly unlimited membership sticker on the windshield that they'll scan when you enter the car wash.
No need to stop, pay and pump replacement gas when you return it - you can return the car to me at any battery % level.
A full charge (which I'll make sure you have when you pick up the car) will get you about 75-100 miles of gas-free driving. If you want to drive further than that you can Quick-charge it (recharging the battery to 80% in a 1/2 hour or less) easily and for free, at almost any Nissan Dealership.
I will also give you my Chargepoint tap card so you can access and charge at any of the chargepoint locations in metro Boston.
The car also comes with a plug that can plug into any conventional wall outlet (120v) if you need it.
With this rental you will not pay any fuel costs - You can charge for free at Nissan Dealerships (you don't even need to talk to anyone- just pull up and plug in) or use my ChargePoint card at any of the public charging stations around town.
I use the PlugShare app to find the closest charging stations. Many of these spots are also reserved spots just for Electric Vehicles so you'll have the best parking spots in town.
My favorite charging stations around town:
-Quirk Nissan in Quincy (Quick Charger and Level 2 fast chargers)
-Landmark Building parking (Fenway) - Lower level near Best Buy - catch a movie there and they will validate your parking with a huge discount.
-Babcock St public parking at Coolidge Corner (you pay for parking here which is about $1.25/hour)
-Brookline Town Hall (cheap hourly parking, free on Sundays)
This car handles extremely well and is really fun to drive. It's also almost completely silent and a very smooth ride, despite the impressive amount of torque available with the single gear electronic transmission.
The car is parked about an 8-10 minutes walk from the Fields Corner T stop (Red Line- Ashmont branch) in the safe and quiet Clam Point neighborhood, but I can even meet you at the T if you'd like. :)
EV / Hybrid
2013 Nissan LeafChristopher's Nissan1552
Christopher's Nissan Leaf was perfect for the trip. I was able to take the entire trip with plenty to spare on a single charge. You really can't beat a hybrid when it comes to driving in the city. Best part was returning the Leaf without going to the pump. Car was also very clean and well kept. Thanks Chris!
