All-electric Nissan Leaf. Has about 80 miles of range. Can be charged for free at hundreds of stations around austin, including "supercharger" stations at 7 locations around austin.
This is the luxury SL model, with room for 5 passengers, navigation, a full size trunk, high end audio, 360 degree cameras, and heated leather seats.
If you're considering an electric car, this is an inexpensive way to give it a try. Otherwise, if you need a car and are ok with the 50-60 miles of real-world range (in the winter), and/or have a little time to re-charge, this is a great car!
I had a really great trip! Jason was very helpful making sure I was comfortable driving the Leaf making sure that I knew my options for charging throughout the city. I'll definitely be renting from him again in the near future.
