Zipcar Adds Plug-in Hybrids to Boston Fleet

The Boston Common Garage and Zipcar Inc. announced the introduction of four new 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrids to Zipcar's Boston fleet. In addition, there will be plug-in stations and priority parking for Zipcars and other hybrid vehicles available at the Boston Common Garage.

"With these new additions, at the Boston Common Garage, you can now find a green spot all year long," said James E. Rooney, executive director of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA). "We pride ourselves with running an organization that strives to have as little impact on our environment as possible. Thanks to our five-year partnership with Zipcar and its growing fleet of plug-in hybrids in Massachusetts, we can continue to offer services which enhance the quality of life in Boston and throughout the Commonwealth."

"We are thrilled to be able to offer Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrids to our members in the Boston area through Zipcar's program with Honda and our relationship with the MCCA," said Zipcar President Mark Norman. "Zipcar fully supports the MCCA's efforts to green the Boston Common Garage by providing sustainable transportation options for area residents and visitors."

Zipcar currently has four Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid vehicles available in Boston: two at Boston Common Garage, one at Post Office Square Garage and one on the Harvard University campus. According to Zipcar, the plug-ins are available starting from $11.25 per hour.

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 is approximately 570 miles.
