The Shanghai Disney Resort will now offer hourly electric vehicle rentals, according to a report by Green Car Reports.

The vehicles will be provided by Chinese automaker SAIC and will cost 30 yuan ($4.48) per hour to rent, according to the report. SAIC will also offer a fleet of electric vans for shuttle service to the Disney Resort.

Currently, SAIC operates a carsharing service with 100 electric cars and 100 electric buses that tourists can use from train stations, subway stations, and airports to the Disney report, according to the report.

In the near future, SAIC hopes to increase its electric carsharing service beyond the current 100-vehicle fleet, says the report.
