Electric car rental

How would you like to rent a car for 35 cents a minute? or $12.99 an hour? 

That's what car2go is charging to rent their electric cars in Austin, TX. 

Now San Diego has announced they will be launching North America's first large-scale all-electric car sharing fleet with itty-bitty EVs people can grab quickly, easily and spontaneously.

Daimler subsidiary car2go will roll out 300 Smart ForTwo Electric Drives by the end of the year. Subscribers will simply grab a car from designated spots around the city. That's a contrast to Zipcar, which requires users to pick up and return vehicles from the same location. The goal, says car2go, is to make car sharing easier, faster and more practical.
