I was recently looking for a Tesla to rent and saw as well as the Canberra Thrifty option there was a Company called Eveeh that has one in Sydney, one in Canberra and one in Melb. I reached out to the Company and they informed me they will be expanding and are seeking expressions of interest for anyone who wants to list their Car to rent on a car sharing style thing like Turo.com overseas. This is the link to the form if anyone is interested:
What do they charge and what is the owners share?. I looked at a typical Sydney day hire, and it is expensive.
Not sure. The day hire is $600 which isn't too bad when you look at comparable sports car or unique car hire places. They can charge $1000+ or even $5000 for a Ferrari.
I think the Thrifty Tesla in Canberra was $470 ish from memory. I would expect similar to other car share sites they allow you to list your car with your own figure for rental then they take a % off the top. Turo is the big player in the US and UK. A quick look shows they vary form about $150 to $250USD for teslas - turo.com/rentals/cars/tesla
While not guranteed income it might help me buy a Model X . As long as the insurances are sorted it could work.
This company has now stooped to SPAMMING ozleaf forum members via private messages! "Make money with your EV!" Not cool. Not the type of company I will be dealing with.
If they spammed our private email addresses I would agree with you. Sending us a forum PM doesn't compromise anything, so that's not a hanging offence in my book, particularly when we all want to spread the EV spirit, and they are trying to grow a viable business based on that.
It's a small world, it turns out the owner of Eveeh owns a LEAF and lives in the same suburb as me. Nice to see another LEAF around the area.
Looking past their questionable approach to soliciting interest last month, who would be prepared to share their car? I personally wouldn't, just because I have trust issues with other people driving my car.
I'm also not partial to it given a person who 'looked after it' whilst I was OS, used the acceleration to excess. Range dropped by 30%, lost a bar and kwh usage went way up. Was bragging about pick-up and top speed. Dont need that.

I was involved with a car share company in the past, and although at first it appears to be a good concept, I wouldn't loan my car out though. I have never witnessed such wanton and deliberate damage to vehicles. They were thrashed, smashed, damaged and used as trash cans. It never ceased to amaze me how much damage can be done to thousands of dollars of new vehicles. Sadly, there are very few one can 100% trust with ones property, especially more obvious than when Carwings records the throttle useage, and the battery takes the brunt of it all. For a hand-full of dollars, it can easily cost considerably more.
Energy in the LEAF=it's weight, multiplied by the speed I need, squared!.

I know it's been long time, but I just stumbled upon this thread. I'm the founder if Evee (without the h now) and would like to apologise to those we had disturbed with our messages. That definiely was not the intent, but I understand it might've been annoying. We were desperate to find EV owners Things are changing now and I do hope to have the new (and old) LEAFs on Evee soon.
Sorry again and let me know if you you have any questions!
