Zipcar, an innovation car sharing company, has brought gas free driving to the city of Chicago. The company added five Chevrolet Volts to their fleet. This initiative was brought about to help bring awareness and support to the Chicago Climate Control Act.
For only $10 / per hour members of Zipcar can rent these very environmentally friendly vehicles. The Chevrolet Volt is a full speed electric vehicle and can travel for 35 miles. That is the maximum distance that a Zipcar member has taken the vehicle.
The city of Chicago has partnered with several different organizations to set up different locations where the vehicles can be charged. Many of the locations were set up in parking lots.
