Zipcar Inc. announced the introduction of 2013 Honda Fit EV battery electric vehicles (BEV) into the Zipcar Los Angeles fleet on March 28.
The first of the new Honda Fit EVs are located in Hollywood at commercial buildings managed by Paramount Contractors & Developers Inc. (PCD). The vehicles are parked in Zipcar-branded spots with charging stations.
The new Honda Fit EVs are available to all Zipcar members ages 21 and over for hourly reservations, starting from $8.75 per hour.
Zipcar held an event on March 29 for the launch, where Los Angeles residents and PCD tenants were invited to check out the new Honda Fit EVs and watch technology demonstrations on how the EVs work.
“The new EVs will enhance the sustainable transportation options our Zipcar members have available to them and allow Los Angeles residents and visitors to further reduce their carbon footprint, all while driving one of the most technologically advanced and fun cars on the road,” said Jeff Shields, Zipcar Los Angeles general manager.
