Zipcar Now Offers Plug-In Hybrids in New York City

Edison ParkFast and Zipcar Inc. recently announced the introduction of 20 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrids to Zipcar’s fleet at several Edison ParkFast locations throughout New York City.

"We are thrilled to be able to offer Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrids to our members in the New York area through Zipcar's program with Honda and our relationship with Edison ParkFast," said Zipcar President Mark Norman. "The large number of convenient Edison ParkFast locations allows Zipcar to provide several sustainable transportation options for area residents and visitors."

The new Honda Accord Plug-ins are located at 10 locations throughout Manhattan, with Zipcar-branded parking spots and charging stations at each site. Rates start from $14.50 per hour.

"We've enjoyed our partnership with Zipcar since 2008," said Stacy Stuart, executive vice president, marketing and human resources at Edison Properties, the parent company of Edison ParkFast. "Both companies are committed to providing people in New York and elsewhere with the best possible driving and parking options. And with the arrival of Zipcar's Plug-in Hybrid electric vehicles, combined with our ParkFast charging stations, New Yorkers now have a new and environmentally friendly way of getting where they need to go."

Based on the popular five-passenger Accord, Honda's 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid is rated at a combined fuel economy of 46 mpg. On a full charge and tank of gas, the range of the plug-in hybrid is approximately 570 miles.
