More Electric Cars Added To S.F. Bay Area Car Sharing Fleet | Sustainable Cities Collective
The idea of car sharing, where multiple paying members of an organization have hourly access to a scattered fleet of ready to go vehicles, is a really great idea for cutting down on car pollution. That being said, the fleets of these car sharing entities are in some ways only as green as the vehicles in them, which thus gives San Francisco Bay Area based City CarShare a strong leg up via the fact a large amount of its vehicles are making use of green technology.
City CarShare recently announced it had added two new Ford Focus Electric vehicles to its car sharing fleet, bringing its total green tech car number up to 178. This is broken down to include 160 hybrids, 13 plug-in hybrids and five all-electric cars, giving the nation’s largest non-profit car sharing organization a mix of vehicles that are 44 percent oriented towards cars with close to or straight up zero emissions.
