I love Kauai, as well as Maui and Kona, so I would like to do a week on each. The big island will likely need to go ICE, but who knows if there are QC's all over.
There are Leaf rentals on Oahu, but I don't know about Big Island & Kauai. If you can't find a Leaf you might be able to rent a Prius.

The great news is that 20 DCFC stations are being installed on Maui this year, and each of the charge stations will have 4 individual charge ports for a total of at least 80 additional DCFC's. :shock: Four of these stations are being installed right now, including Queen Kaahumanu Center in Kahului, Maui Tropical Plantation in Wailuku, Kaanapali Beach Hotel in Kaanapali and Maui Ocean Center in Maalaea. They're not operational yet but I've personally seen the ones at Queen Kaahumanu & Maui Tropical Plantation. And charging at these stations is supposed to be free for at least 2 years. Charging is still free at the DCFC at the County Building in Wailuku, and at most of the level 2 stations around Maui.

That IS great news!

Any suggestions for carrying luggage to/from Kaanapali?

We could do that for an extra $35.

Yes.

If you're interested in renting the Leaf in July we have one available starting July 10.

DCFC update: There are currently 6 DCFC on Maui, 4 of these locations have 4 charge ports, 1 has 3 charge ports (Kaanapali Beach Hotel) & the County Building. Another Jump Smart Maui DCFC station is being installed at the Kula Lodge. Here's a link to our google EV charge station map - http://www.evcarrentals.com/mauievchargestations.htm

Also found out about a new level 2 at Home Depot, it's a Schneider Electric unit with one port & it's free to use - pictured below.

Any word on when the others are going in? We're thinking about doing a trip in December 2014 and it would involve backpacking in Haleakala. I would think if there were a place to get a full charge somewhere around Kula it would be fine, correct? Is there one going in in Hana?

I was there in November and ended up renting the volt instead of the leaf. Since the island is so small you should be able to make it on all electric except for a Hana or Haleakala trip. I was planning on charging in Hana at a B&B but their outlet was probably not grounded so the evse didn't work. Unless they put in two different Hana chargers I wouldn't chance it.. go with the volt. I've definitely run into L2 opconnect chargers that seemed fine from plugshare but had issues. No big deal for the volt but would have been very annoying with the leaf when you're counting on it to work. Either way, sounds like you have plenty of time.
