Zipcar has added Santa's sleigh to its fleet in eight U.S. cities. From Dec.23-28, each "sleigh" is named after one of Santa's reindeer. 

Each "sleigh" is a fully wrapped Ford Focus Hatchback, accessorized with Christmas music, candy and Santa hats. According to Zipcar, gas, insurance and holiday cheer are included.

The eight sleighs can be reserved by the hour or by the day in the following cities:

- Atlanta ("Dasher")

- Austin ("Dancer")

- Boston ("Prancer")

- Denver ("Vixen")

- Portland ("Comet")

- Providence ("Donner")

- Miami ("Blitzen")

- Minneapolis ("Cupid")

"Santa only uses his sleigh once a year, so why should we have to deal with the costs and hassles of year-round ownership?" said Kaye Ceille, Zipcar president. "This year, Santa's getting into the Zipcar spirit and sharing his sleigh, so when he's not using it, members can. ... "

One dollar per sleigh reservation will be donated to Toys for Tots.
