Description

If you need the car at NOW, book for the earliest time possible and you can instantly pick up at the car's location! Excellent car for the city or for road trips. The car gets between 40-50 miles on all electric power when driving in the city and seamlessly transitions to using gas like a regular hybrid after all electricity is used. If charged every night by being plugged into just a regular outlet, you won't be paying for any gas at all! I can't guarantee if the car will be fully charged but will be full on gas upon pickup and the car will drive just like a hybrid if not charged. Majority of the time, the battery will be charged. You can return the car with an empty battery, just fill up the gas tank if you used any gas. (if paid for extras: prepaid EV charging) Car has 100% torque from 0 RPM all times whether you're using gas or electricity. Truly amazing car! 60/40 split folding seats and a hatchback design allows for excellent storage/cargo space. Note: Airbag service light occasionally comes on. The passenger side sensor sometimes senses moisture and will trigger the warning.

Faqs

  • How do I charge an electric car?
    Included in the charge cord which is located inside the trunk, this is similar to a cell phone charger, where you plug in one side to the wall, the other side into front driver side of the car. A full charge will usually be complete if the car is being charged overnight. There are also a wealth of free level 2 chargers around which are available for the public. If you use one of these higher powered chargers a full charge from an empty battery will take 4 hours. (download the application "Plugshare" to find charging stations close to you.
  • Do I NEED to charge the car?
    Absolutely not necessary! You can run this car permanently on gasoline for the life of your rental, never plugging it in. You can get close to 300 miles on just a full tank of gas if you have no access the a charging station, this car will do just fine as long as it has gasoline in the tank. No need to return the car charged, only return the car with the same gas level as you received it.

Neat remote unlock trick! Also the gas mileage on this car is incredible!

Darwin was a stellar person to rent from. He was a great communicator and very thorough. He was grandparents with minors damages on the car, being sure to upload his own photos of the car before my trip started. Even though I had to pick up and return the car at 5:30 and 6:30 in the morning because of my flights, he was up and responded to my messages quickly. Would definitely recommend him.

Darwin is SO awesome! I’ve now used him twice and he is always on top of communication and flexible. I will absolutely be using Darwin again.
