$25 off! This is a luxurious all-electric hatchback with a backup gasoline generator. You can drive up to 53 miles on a full charge plus another 250+ miles using the generator. Charge overnight at home or during your lunch break at an EV charging station. Pick up at Duke, UNC, or NC State, RDU Airport, Jaycee Park, or Cameron Village in Raleigh, or in Wilson/Rocky Mount, Greensboro/High Point, Durham/Cary Amtrak Stations or the Fayetteville, Jacksonville, and Greenville bus stations. Free 4G WiFi from AT&T/OnStar, heated seats. Seat protectors available for kids/car seats. Sirius XM Radio ready, dual USB, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto! Navigation and voice recognition. Aux port, 360 proximity sensors and park assist. Bose sound system. Premium wheels. Magnetic phone mount and universal windshield mount. Lightning, USB-C, and micro USB cables included. Charge the car when power is available. KEEP YOUR GAS RECEIPTS! ----- Free delivery available for multi-day trips at RDU! Free delivery outside of The Triangle is only available for long trips (despite what Turo shows in the listing - there's a glitch they need to fix). Back up camera Fold-down rear seats MPGe: 113 city / 99 highway MPG: 43 city / 42 highway --- Please keep all your gas receipts and write the odometer reading on the slip each time you fill up. You can keep them in the center console. Do let me know if you think you will exceed the mileage limit. Check with your credit card or insurance provider to see if they cover Turo rentals. If not I strongly suggest the premium insurance coverage provided through Turo. The lower plan only provides coverage after a $3,000 deductible. If you cause damage, you will be responsible for any amount under the deductible, assuming your own insurance provider or credit card does not chip in. --- Notes: I can exchange at any time of day with reasonable notice. However, between the hours of 11 PM and 7 AM, if you use instant book I may not be able to honor the pick up time. You must call me with more than an hour's notice if I do not reply via text. I offer inexpensive delivery options in the Triangle, in Wilson/Rocky Mount, Durham/Chapel Hill/Cary, RDU, and Greensboro/High Point, because I can hop on a bus/train or my renters can ride with me to the pickup or drop off location. If you request delivery when there is no public transit (holidays, nights/weekends) for a short trip, I may need your help getting home or to pay for a taxi. I do not offer free delivery outside of the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) except for trips of 10 days or more. If booking long distance delivery with less than 48 hours notice, I will also need to bill you for my train or bus ticket.

I was visiting Greensboro for a work visit. Jim was very communicative and thorough and the car was in immaculate condition.

It was such a pleasure doing business with Jim. He is a true car expert, very friendly, professional, and passionate about hybrid cars. I look forward to renting from him again soon.

This car was so fun to drive! It's silent with amazing acceleration. I had never used an electric car before, and I was a little nervous about charging it, but it was really easy. Jim was helpful in figuring this out and made things easy for me. Thanks, Jim!

Car drives well. It was very clean and fuel efficient. I had no issues during my short trip. After the trip was over, I continued to receive requests through text. He wanted extra information that is not required by Turo. I accommodated Jim for a short while, but eventually had to terminate the conversation. I would rent from him again, but I would ask that he keep the requests to a minimum.
