USA: Zipcar Inc., the world's leading car sharing network, with the support of Los Angeles City Councilmember, Eric Garcetti, announced the introduction of 2013 Honda Fit EV battery electric vehicles (BEV) into the Zipcar Los Angeles fleet.
The addition of the new electric vehicles in Los Angeles comes as a result of the program announced by Honda and Zipcar in April 2012, through which Honda became a Zipcar preferred vehicle manufacturer with a focus on hybrid and electric vehicles.
The agreement between Honda and Zipcar gives Zipcar members increased access to Honda's most technologically advanced, lowest emission vehicles, making an already transformational service even more sustainable. Through the program, Zipcar is planning to add additional Honda EVs into the company's fleet over the course of this year.
The new Honda Fit EVs are available to all Zipcar members ages 21+ for hourly reservations, starting from $8.75 per hour.
