Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive 2014
My family rented Olga's B-Class Electric Drive for a week and we couldn't have been happier. ABOUT OLGA: On my layover I learned that my previously arranged Turo rental needed maintenance, so I requested Olga's and before my next plane left she had already confirmed. Communication was easy and Olga was super friendly and flexible throughout, meeting me right at the arrival terminal for pickup, then allowing me to drop off via airport parking when I was in a hurry to depart. ABOUT THE CAR: I'm an electrical engineer and big car nerd but had never gone for more than a test drive in an EV so I was excited to see what it's like to live with. The 80 mile range is more than enough to get around the island a couple times between charges. I love unique cool cars and this did not disappoint - I believe it's the only B-Class on the island. Very clean inside and out, everything works perfectly. Drives like a Mercedes should. Electric power is punchy around town, and it had the coconuts to handle the uphill highway drive between Honolulu and Kailua even in pouring rain. Easy loading hatchback had enough cargo space for our oversized stroller, two suitcases, three backpacks and a carseat with room to spare. Also gets the safe and family friendly thumbs up from the wife and kid. Free EV parking most anywhere, free charging many places (including our rental home - $0 fuel costs all trip!). Basically, it checks all the boxes. The 2 year old keeps asking, "Where's Olga's car?"
