Description

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE RENTING! This is an electric vehicle. It DOES NOT USE GASOLINE, AT ALL. It has an EPA rated range of 86 miles, but the reality is that is based mostly for city driving in good weather. If you are driving it on the highway and/or using the climate control a lot, you'll probably end up with more like 50 miles of range. Keep this in mind as to whether or not it will work for you. I have now had 3 different people who rented this car end up getting it towed because they tried using it for longer trips. This is more of a commuter car for going to work and back, school, the grocery store, etc. If you rent this car, you will likely need to charge it. The 120V home charger is included in the rear cargo area if you need to charge it at home. You can also use public chargers and you will want to install the smartphone app called "plugshare" to find the nearest ones. Because I have had so many people try to rent this car thinking it is a gasoline car, I no longer allow automatic booking for it. So, if you request to book this car, I will email you back shortly and verify that you understand it is an electric vehicle, you understand the range limits, and that you have a plan for being able to charge it. If you want to avoid this, please include a note when you request to book it explaining that you already understand it is an EV and I will go ahead and approve it immediately.
