ORLANDO, Fla. - A car rental company is offering a fleet of plug-in electric vehicles in Orlando -- and drivers won't have to pay for gas under a recently launched initiative.
The new program, called Drive Electric Orlando, was announced Thursday morning.
Tourists who rent one of the 15 available Nissan Leaf cars from Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Orlando can charge the fully electric vehicles at hotels, near theme parks and even outside of city hall -- all for free. There are about 300 charging stations in the greater Orlando area -- and under the program, AAA will charge the car for free if it runs out of juice.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer says the program is a great way to introduce the cars to potential new buyers -- whether tourists or city residents.
