New to Turo? Use this link to create your account and save $25 off your first trip with ANY car (not just mine)! Chevrolet's second generation Volt is an all around improvement on the already great first generation 2010-2015 models. Some of the luxurious features on this Premier trim Volt include: Front and rear heated seats; a heated steering wheel; two-tone leather interior; bluetooth connectivity, USB input, and 3.5mm audio jack; rearview backup camera with parking sensors and an automatic parallel parking feature; cruise control; and four driving modes. Our own additions include Weathertech floor mats in the front seats and the rear cargo area. We always deliver a freshly vacuumed and recently washed vehicle. Cruise the town in style or plan a fuel-efficient road trip with our Volt that gets up to 45 mpg in the city and 43 on the highway, including an 18kWh battery for 50-65 miles of pure electric driving depending upon your driving style and city/hwy mix. Please help us keep our car in good mechanical condition by only fueling at stations that sell top tier gas (this is in reference to the amount and grade of detergents used, not the octane rating). These retailers can be found on this list: In Indianapolis, a notable exception to this list is Speedway. They are owned by Marathon, sell top tier gas, and are often the most competitive price. Some prevalent brands to avoid since they do not sell top tier gas are: Admiral, Casey's, Kroger, and Murphy USA (Wal-Mart). Lastly, as a protection for future guests with allergies and sensitivities, no smoking or pets allowed in this vehicle.

  • Why does the mileage from the gas engine vary between 36 and 43 mpg?
    The efficiency of this car whether on electric charge or gasoline is highly dependent upon your driving style. Jackrabbit starts, as fun as they are in this car, will reduce your range more quickly than controlled, steady acceleration. Likewise, hard, last-second braking will recoup less energy than coasting to stop signs/lights and light, controlled braking.
  • I've heard electric cars get worse mileage in the winter. What does the mileage look like for your Volt from November-March?
    The mileage from the gas engine takes a small, almost unnoticeable dip (about 1 mpg less). The range from the battery is noticeably less (about 48 with my driving style in the winter vs. 65 in the summertime). Depending on how far you are driving between full charges, you can employ an energy-saving strategy that I have developed over the past two winters. One of the driving modes this car has is "Hold" which will force the car to use the internal combustion engine (ICE) and "hold" the remaining electric miles for later use. Toggling between normal and hold modes to run the engine for 5-10 minutes at a time will allow the climate control system to use "free" heat from the engine block and reduce energy spent on the electric heating element. When driving solo, I can get through most chilly 50-60 degree morning commutes with only the heated seat and steering wheel.
  • How do I charge this electric car?
    The Volt comes equipped with a portable 110V (standard wall outlet) charger. The charger is tucked away in a side compartment in the cargo area. Unwind the cord and be sure to plug the charger into the wall before placing the plug into the car's charging port. The charging port is a press to open/close door on the driver's side. Once you have plugged in to the car you will hear a beep to confirm charging has begun and will see a green light flash in accordance with the battery's charge level (1 flash = 25% or less, 2 flashes = 50% or less, 3 flashes = 75% or less, and solid green indicates charging is complete). Expect the car to charge at a rate of about 4 miles per hour (12-14 hours for a 0-full charge). If you can find a public charging station (hopefully a free one), these typically charge at the 220V rate which is roughly 4 times faster than the standard "at home" 110V charging. Expect the car to charge at a rate of about 13 miles per hour (4 hours for a 0-full charge).

This is my second time renting from Shelby. He has incredible pride of ownership and does everything he can to make the experience convenient. Will be renting from him again!

Shelby was very friendly and easy to work with! The car was loaded with features and a great drive. I highly recommend!

Do not rent from Shelby if you are expecting the car to be delivered to the airport. We paid for delivery, he insisted on driving us 20 minutes to his house and told us we are to return it to his house - although, again, we paid for airport delivery/dropoff . He was not a pleasant person to work with and I do not recommend him as a Turo host.
