You can now rent a Neta V for less than RM100 per day


Truth be told, one of the best ways to learn about electric vehicles is by renting them. If you have been curious about the Neta V which is currently the most affordable EV in our market, you can now rent it for less than RM100.

Neta V rental pricing, mileage cap, deposit

The Neta V rental service is provided by the Neta dealership NexV Synergy which is a joint venture between Careplus Group and GoAuto Group. Even though the company is based in Careplus Mall at Seremban, customers can choose to pick up their rented Neta V in Glenmarie as well.

The company can also arrange for delivery in other locations but it is limited to Klang Valley and subjected to additional charges. The standard rental fee is RM149/day although NexV Synergy is currently offering the service for RM99/day.

There is some discrepancy when it comes to the mileage cap though. In the booking section of the website, it was noted that customers will be given unlimited mileage.

However, the website’s FAQ section said that there is a mileage cap of 200km/day for this service. That being said, NexV Synergy didn’t specify the actual fee in the section.

Meanwhile, customers have to pay RM200 as a deposit which will be refunded back to them once they return the Neta V in good condition and without any traffic summons.

There was no mention of whether NexV Synergy provides a charging cable or charging card with their Neta V rental as GoCar GoEV’s Nissan Leaf. However, the company said that each rental unit will be fully charged before it is handed to customers and will provide them with a portable charger.

It is currently the best EV rental rate in the market

While it is not the first EV rental service in Malaysia, the new offering by NexV Synergy is currently the cheapest in the market that involves a fairly recent EV model. The closest EV rental rate that you can get would be GoCar’s GoEV service but you have to settle for the original Nissan Leaf which is something that we would not recommend unless you know what you are doing.

As a comparison, here’s how much it costs to rent an EV from other providers in the market:

  • Nissan Leaf 1st Gen – GoCar GoEV: RM99
  • Nissan Leaf 2nd Gen – GoCar GoEV: RM179
  • Renault Zoe 2nd Gen – GoCar GoEV: RM199
  • GWM Ora Good Cat – GoCar GoEV: RM272
  • BYD Dolphin – Avis: RM168 / Hertz: RM175
  • BYD Atto 3 – Avis: RM188 / Hertz: RM185
  • Hyundai Kona – Hertz: RM185
  • Tesla Model 3 – Avis: RM338
  • Smart #1 – Avis: RM388
  • BMW iX – Hertz: RM550
  • Audi Q8 e-tron – Avis: RM568

Do note that the daily rates for Avis and Hertz listed above are based on their recent promotional pricing as listed here and here. As for the GoCar GoEV rates, they are based on what the company mentioned in its FAQ.
