BMW Electric Vehicle Sharing Coming to San Francisco
It's really unpractical to own a car if you live in the city, but sometimes, you need one. BMW is introducing a new car sharing program in San Francisco utilizing their new electric vehicle ActiveE. GreenBiz explains:
Starting with a fleet of 70 vehicles, the program, known as DriveNow, allows enrolled drivers to take a car from one point to another and leave it, unlike other car-sharing programs which require vehicles to be returned to the same pick-up location.
Under the program, drivers can reserve a car online or through a smartphone app after registering as DriveNow members. They can pick up their cars at one of eight DriveNow stations in the San Francisco Bay Area, with plans to open more in the near future, and return vehicles to the nearest station.
This is a very cool idea. Not only is the car sharing program convenient, you get to drive a styley car!
