Description

This is a fully electric car! It's range is 90 miles in the summer and 70 in the winter. You'll need access to a place to charge the car to rent this overnight. Charging just at public stations is not usually adequate. We will give you our “trickle charger”, which can be plugged into any standard three pronged outlet or an extension cord. We can give you an extension cord for a fee if you need one. See more about charging at home or at public stations in the FAQ section. We will request reimbursement for the cost you accrue over your trip. No need to return it with a full charge, just make sure there’s at least 30 miles left. We are excited about sharing EV technology with newcomers so don’t hesitate to ask us questions about how to make this rental work for your needs! If you’re new to Turo use my code so we both get $25! https://turo.com/c/caylinm1

Extras

Add optional Extras to your trip at checkout.
Prepaid EV recharge
Charging a car is a little trickier than swinging by the gas station. Save time and make dropoff a breeze by adding this Extra, which allows you to return my car without fully recharging. Please return with at least 20 miles of range.

Guidelines

Dogs welcome, but please return the car clean. No smoking.

Faqs

  • How do I get the most mileage out of the range?
    It has two drive modes, D and B. I always drive in B because it uses regenerative braking so you get a few more miles out of it. I also always drive in eco mode, which will be set when you turn on the car. Driving that way you can expect to get about 90 miles out of it in the summer or 70 in the winter. If you drive over the speed limit on the highway, it likely won’t be quite that much. Using the air conditioning or heat will take away about 10 miles.
  • How do I charge the car at home?
    There is a gas tank looking button to the left of the steering wheel. Press that to pop the lid for the outlets. the trickle charge plug fits into the smaller of the two outlets. I recommend plugging it in whenever you get home to keep it charged for your next trip. It takes 8-12 hours to charge from empty to full using that charger. The dashboard display will tell you exactly how much time is needed to get to full charge.
  • How do I charge the car at public stations?
    Most of the public chargers will be level 1 or 2. They use a plug that looks just like mine. These are called J1772. You’ll want to filter for this in your search because not all chargers are this type. Level 1 charges at a rate of 5 miles per hour. Level 2 charges at a rate of up to 25 miles per hour. Most of these are ChargePoint stations. Level 3 or “DC Fast Charging” stations are less common but charge up to 80% capacity in under 30 minutes. You’ll need to look for ones with a CHAdeMO plug which fits into the larger of the two outlets in the front of the car. Most of these are EVgo. You can seek these out if you need them with either the EVgo or ChargePoint app. There are RFID charge cards for both companies in the drivers side visor for you to use at these stations. I’ll request reimbursement for the charges you accrued during your trip. People usually spend less than $10/week. There is a button to lock the charger in place when it’s at a public station but I don’t ever use it. Those are the major things you need to know! My family and their kind dogs may be home when you get there and they know you’re renting the car. Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime or when you pick it up.

Caylin is very flexible, understanding, and friendly. She was always so quick to reply and communicated everything very well. Really enjoyed every moment!

We really loved having an EV option to rent especially now that we use one at home. It feels so much better to be driving something that is emission free! The communication and coordination for pickup and drop off went very smoothly. I had not driven a leaf before but with the quick orientation Caylin gave me it was very easy to make the transition. I was a bit concerned about range but that turned out to be a non issue. I was able to trickle charge overnight so did not even have to stop at any chargepoint during my stay in Middlebury.

It was a great experience. Really comfort to communicate with Caylin. Any time answered our questions.

Had a great trip and Caylin and her Nissan Leaf were wonderful. Caylin was very flexible with pickup and drop off logistics and provided me, an electric-car novice, with perfect instructions on how to use drive and charge her Leaf. The car drove like a dream in the almost perfect weather we had. The range is limited but that did not affect my trip at all. A special thank you to Caylin for her flexibility!

Loved driving this car! And it was clean, easy to drive and loved the CD in the car. Caylin was very nice and easy to work with! Would rent with her again. :)
