USA: Car-sharing group introduces all-electric options

I-GO CarSharing, a non-profit car-sharing group, is offering all-electric vehicles for the first time to its members, after acquiring a Nissan Leaf and two Mitsubishi i-MiEVs.

The vehicles are part of Chicago-based I-GO project to have 16 solar canopies to supply solar energy to its network of 30 electric vehicle charging stations. I-GO’s electric vehicle network will also include six charging stations powered by the grid.

The Mitsubishi i-MiEV and Nissan Leaf get up to 126 miles per charge and 106 MPC in city driving, respectively, according to the EPA.

The electric vehicles are available to I-GO members at:

†Nissan Leaf at Jewel grocery store, 2940 N. Ashland Ave.

†Mitsubishi i-MiEV at Illinois Institute of Technology, 3201 S. State St.

†Mitsubishi i-MiEV at I-GO’s headquarters at 2125 W. North Ave.

Each solar charging station will form a canopy that covers four parking spaces, and the stations will be able to power two electric vehicles. Two spaces will be reserved for I-GO at each location, and the others will be available to the public.
