HOW IT WORKS?
EV Rentals is a Vancouver based company specialized in daily rentals of luxury electric vehicles. We offer 2 types of electric vehicles;
- 100% electric vehicles or Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV). Those vehicles are only power with electricity and you can’t fill them with gas. The cars need to be recharged to be “refuelled”. We only use high range vehicles lite the Tesla Model S 75 with a rated range of 400km and the Tesla Model X 90D rated at 415km. With that range available our BEV will give you enough travelling distance to get to your destination. Our Tesla vehicles also give you access to Tesla Superchargers to recharge on the go in less than 1 hour.
- Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV). Those vehicles have both, an electric motor and a conventional combustion engine. It’s possible to drive fully electric on these cars but the electric range is more limited than a BEV. You can recharge the batteries of these cars like a conventional battery electric vehicle. If you do short distance you can only use electricity. The gas-powered engine will give you infinite range when you run out of electricity. On a long journey, you can use the PHEV vehicle with a combination of electric and gas power and have a lower gas consumption rate than a regular gas-powered vehicle. In the PHEV category, we have BMW 530e, Porsche Panamera Hybrid and the luxury Chrysler Pacifica a 7 passenger minivan.
We are conveniently located in Richmond BC at less than 20 minutes from the Vancouver International Airport (YVR). We offer a free pick up option for clients from the airport. Just take a cab from the airport and we will credit you the fair on your rental (contact us for the complete details)
To rent with us just go in our reservation menu, put the dates you want the vehicle and see what’s available and reserve it. You will need to choose a mandatory protection package for the car with a deductible of $2,500, $1,000 or $0. You can also chose other options depending on the vehicle and we can deliver the car to any location in the Greater Vancouver area for a fee.
Charging in Vancouver and all over BC is easy and simple as there is a lot of public chargers available. Cost of public chargers goes form free to few dollars per hours. For convenience, we will provide you with an access card to the major charging station network available in BC. You will be responsible for charging the vehicles during your rental and for the cost, if any, associated with the recharge.
It’s easy to find the charging station. There are few websites and phone applications who will tell you where you can charge. The most popular are www.plugshare.com and www.chargehub.com . If you still can’t find were to charge don’t hesitate to ask us and we will help you to find a charging station.
One of the good things about renting an electric vehicle it’s that you don’t need to charge the vehicle before bringing it back to us (if you choose the offsite delivery option you may be asked to give the vehicle with a certain charge amount). For PHEV vehicles the vehicle needs to be returned with the same amount of gas that when it was taken.
