Los Angeles-based MPG Car Rental has added the BMW i8 to its all-green rental fleet.

This plug-in hybrid sports car includes BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and BMW eDrive technology, according to BMW USA. It was first released in U.S. showrooms in the spring of 2014.

With a waiting list of buyers hoping to purchase the BMW i8, renting it could give a chance to drive the in-demand vehicle, says MPG Car Rental.

MPG’s all-green fleet includes hybrids and all-electric vehicles, such as Tesla Model S, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, Chevy Volt, Honda Insight and the BMW i3.
