Zipcar adds Volts to its Chicago car-sharing fleet

The company plans to deploy up to 20 more PHEVs and/or EVs in Chicago this year. Zipcar will launch the new Volts with a public event on Saturday, March 31.

 

Zipcar, Inc. (Nasdaq: ZIP), a car-sharing service that offers almost 9,000 vehicles for rent in the US, Canada and the UK, announced this week that they have added five Chevrolet Volts to their fleet in Chicago. The company plans to deploy up to 20 more PHEVs and/or EVs in Chicago this year. Zipcar will launch the new Volts with a public event on Saturday, March 31.

Zipcar is working with a number of partners to introduce the plug-in vehicles, including the Chicago Transit Authority and LAZ Parking, which are providing locations for the Volts at transit stations and private parking lots, as well as 350Green, which is installing charging stations.

"We are looking forward to providing our Chicago Zipsters with increased opportunities to reduce their environmental impact and drive some of the most technologically-advanced vehicles on the road as we roll out this EV program over the coming months," said Zipcar’s Charles Stephens. "Freedom has always been a hallmark of the Zipcar experience, and now members can have the best of both worlds – the low carbon experience of an electric car with the back-up security of a gas engine – as we introduce the new Volts into our fleet this week."
