Are you considering buying an electric car? Here’s how to test one on your next road trip
Planning a road trip in one of Turo’s electric vehicles is your chance to experience the driving difference.
Buying a new car should be fun, but it’s often a daunting experience, with so many makes, models, optional accessories, and decisions. Today, the growing popularity of electric vehicles adds yet another dimension to car purchase. For drivers used to filling up at gas stations, the idea of plugging in their car to charge might seem like a major adjustment.
Many questions about switching to a electric vehicle (EV) focuses on mileage range and charging process. The driving experience may also feel somewhat different, as electric vehicles can accelerate faster than gasoline-powered cars.
tutorial, the world’s largest peer-to-peer car-sharing marketplace (the “Airbnb of cars,” if you will), offers the perfect solution. Turo is an affordable, reliable and flexible alternative to traditional rental agencies. In their wide variety of car listings, around 8% are electric vehicles, and Turo hosts offer some of the most sought-after makes and models to choose from.
Plan a road trip in one of the Turo electric vehicles is an opportunity to experience the difference in driving, especially if the journey requires both highways and local streets. It’s a way to understand the range of the vehicle, how to charge it, try different charging stations and just get used to the feel of the vehicle. Drivers will soon notice the number of electric vehicle charging stations in car parks, shopping center parking lots, stores and hotels, as the electric vehicle charging infrastructure is constantly expanding.
Turo vehicles are available in over 9,500 cities in the US, UK, Canada and France, making it easy for customers to reserve and pick up a vehicle. To reserve a car on Turo, simply create an account, enter your driver’s license and a few other details for approval. In the United States, you must be at least 18 years old (another advantage over most car rental companies), and once approved, you’re all set.
Simply enter your destination, go to special section for electric vehicles, and browse the lists to select the electric vehicle you like. Many hosts offer delivery to airports, train stations, hotels, or custom delivery locations.
In addition to trying vehicles to buy research, Turo users rent cars for vacations, business trips, temporary needs, and often just for the pleasure of driving another type of car. Once your account is set up, the rest is simple.
