Cars2go Electric Car Sharing Program Launched in San Diego

Cars2go is a car company that offers a personal twist to public transportation. If you hate commuting back and forth to work every day but can’t afford a brand new car, Cars2go is your solution. The idea was first introduced in 2009 in Austin, Texas. The initial idea of Car2go is about car sharing but the service is more personal that you may thing and definitely more flexible. Cars2go gives you the experience of driving (and even owning) your own car without the big expense.

Cars2go is an auxiliary of the Daimler North America Corporation. During a recently held press conference, Cars2go made an announcement that San Diego, California will be the first city in North America to experience the full benefits of their program, which is the use of pure-electric vehicles through a car “sharing” program.

San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders has expressed his excitement about the Cars2go program. He added that this move supports their goal to make the city America’s capital for EVs. The Cars2go program in San Diego will kick off with 300 Smart ForTwo EVs and will commence before 2011 ends.

According to the President and COO of Cars2go, Nicholas Cole, the San Diego launch is monumental as it signifies the start of a new era in car-sharing in the North America region. The company’s goal is to aid in meeting the transportation needs of the city as well as giving them the option of using emission-free vehicles to conserve fuel and save the environment.
