Hands down the best way to hit the beaches and see the sights of Key West with a large group, our 6-seater electric cars have the passenger and cargo capacity of a mini-van, but are far more fun, affordable, and easy to drive. The silent electric motor will zip the GEM electric car up to 30mph with 6 adults aboard, taking your group from the Historic Seaport to the beach at Fort Zachary Taylor in minutes. A smooth ride, high-back bucket seats, and seat belts for everyone keep every trip comfortable and safe. When it comes to parking and hopping on and off to see the sights and play, there is no comparison between our electric car and any normal car. The wide-open sides make the GEM so convenient for group transportation and are also perfect for taking pictures. Rental slots from 3-hours to all day, easy online reservations, free pick-up and drop-off, and great customer service make renting your 6-seater Key West electric car a snap.

Frequently Asked QuestionsFAQ
The answers provided below are based on answers previously given to customers' questions.
Can I let my child under 18 years old drive a scooter or electric car by themselves?
No, because you must be at least 18 years old to rent a scooter and 22 years old to rent an electric car. Only the person who enters into the vehicle rental agreement may operate the vehicle. Therefore, the minimum age for drivers will be 18 and 22 years old respectively. We apologize for any inconvenience, but rules like this are standard at any U.S. rental car agency and are required by insurance regulations.
Can you drive a scooter or electric car outside of the island of Key West?
No. You can drive only within the city limits of Key West. Under Florida law, highways are off-limits to electric cars, golf carts, and scooters of all types because the minimum highway speed is set at 40mph except for certain exceptions in congested areas. Scooters can reach a maximum of 40mph but this would be quite risky unless you are an expert rider. Key West electric cars and golf carts have lower top speeds.
All of the streets on the island of Key West have posted speed limits of 30mph or less, so you can go anywhere on the island. This includes South Roosevelt Blvd. which is technically part of US highway A1A. The speed limit in Old Town is 20mph, so these vehicles are very useful for getting around the heart of Key West. The Key West city limits include most of Stock Island, and US1 crosses on to Stock Island with a 35mph limit, but be very careful of the busy highway traffic. An easy rule of thumb is to consider the CVS on the eastern edge of Stock Island as your travel limit.
Do you offer pick up at one location and drop off at another?
Yes, you may request a shuttle drop-off at a different location within Key West.
Do you provide a pickup service from the airport, cruise ship port, ferry, or our hotel?
Yes, Inside Key West is happy to offer complimentary customer pick-up from anywhere in Key West, including the airport, cruise ship port, ferry, or your hotel. Your Key West 6 Seater Electric Car Rental email confirmation will contain a local phone number to coordinate your pickup. Avoid expensive taxis and high price parking, and let Inside Key West make your vacation easy.
Do you provide child seats for the electric cars and golf carts?
Yes, we have seats available in several sizes. Florida child seat laws are the same for any car including electric cars and golf carts – all children under the age of 5 years old or weighing less than 70lbs must be in a child safety seat. Every passenger must have their own seat with seat belts and no one can be held on another person’s lap.
How do I return a scooter or an electric car after hours?
If you need to return a scooter or electric car after hours, simply drive to the rental center and park where the other vehicles are parked. You may drop the keys in the after-hours drop box located at the rental check-out booth.
How do I setup the Free Shuttle for Key West 6 Seater Electric Car Rental?
If you plan on using the free shuttle to the rental location, please follow the instructions below to set it up:
- If your booking is THREE (3) OR MORE DAYS OUT:
Please call the local phone number on your confirmation email the day before your booking.
- If your booking is for TODAY OR TOMORROW:
Please call the local phone number on your confirmation email today.
- Information for CRUISE SHIP PASSENGERS:
The rental location is a ten (10) minute’s walk from the port, so it may be quicker for you to walk over rather than wait for the shuttle.
How fast do your electric cars go?
The electric cars offered by Key West Electric Cars have a top speed of 26 mph. This is perfect for getting around the narrow streets of Key West’s Historic Old Town where the speed limit is 20mph. Top speed on any street on the island is 30mph, but traffic often limits how fast drivers can go. Remember that battery life in any electric vehicle is related to the average speed the driver maintains as well as vehicle load and other factors. When higher constant speeds are maintained, the battery discharges faster.
How late can I get the free shuttle?
Free shuttle service available from 8am until 10pm daily is included with every Key West scooter and electric car rental. All the information you need to take advantage of the shuttle when picking up or dropping off your vehicle will be sent in an email when your booking is completed. You can also contact our customer service representatives if you have further questions.
How old do you have to be to rent an electric car or golf cart?
As per insurance regulations, you must be at least 22 years old and have a valid driver’s license to rent an electric car or golf cart. Only the renter is allowed to drive the vehicle. Every passenger must have their own seat and no one can be held on someone’s lap – all children under the age of 5 years old or weighing less than 70lbs must be in a child safety seat. We have seats in various sizes available at no extra charge.
What is the weather cancellation policy?
If the Key West 6 Seater Electric Car Rental must be canceled due to bad weather, and you cannot go on another day or time, you will be issued a refund by Inside Key West.
