All of our rental vehicles are 100% electric – they’re quick, powerful and easy to drive (especially good on steep hills); their clean and quiet motor allows a nicer driving experience; and they are so much cheaper to run. They do have less range than conventional cars, but ranges are improving and with fast charging stations popping up everywhere this is becoming less of an issue. All our cars come with a portable charging cable for topping up overnight on multi-day rentals and as we include the first battery charge in our rental rates, you don’t have to worry about recharging the car before you return it to us (save time and money).

Rental Rates & Options
Our rental prices for a Nissan LEAF are based on a calendar-day rate (varies by location), with a discount given for multi-day rentals. We offer even better rates for weekly and monthly rentals – call us for a quote! Our rental rate for a Tesla Model S is fixed at NZD $150 per hour or NZD $750 per day. We can’t offer any discount on the Tesla, but we do offer free test-drives to our customers – check our home page for details!
Our standard rental rates are per calendar day, as this suits many of our customers and gives us time to recharge our cars overnight. But we understand that some customers may prefer a 24-hour period – if this is you, please use voucher code BC-24-HR to receive a discount on your booking (return of vehicle on the last day must be at the same time or earlier than your pick-up time on the first day).
Your first charge is included in the rental rate – so you don’t have to worry about recharging the car before returning it to us. If you will be keeping the car for several days then make sure you will be able to charge it overnight. The mobile charge cable supplied with our cars can be plugged into any standard 3-pin socket in New Zealand – just so long as it is close enough to the car park. A full recharge takes 10 hours and uses about $4 of power.
Our rental vehicles come with 3rd Party insurance cover from NZI and are internally insured by Blue Cars for damage to our vehicles. The insurance excess for our standard rental rates is $2,000 per accident or incident. The customer can elect to pay an additional $15 per day to reduce their maximum liability to $200. The applicable excess assumes the customer has not acted negligently or wilfully caused damage (see our Terms & Conditions for full details).
