EV sharing in Hawaii: NGO Blue Planet Foundation wants to set up an e-carsharing on the island of Oahu from early 2017. A total of 70 electric cars are said to be available, while charging will be installed at 20 locations. However, the grant application has yet to be approved.
Reaching further: After launching in Seattle, the BMW sharing scheme ReachNow will also start in Portland, Oregon, from September 6th. The all-electric i3 will, however, only be included in the fleet at a later date.
Expanding borders: Green Motion has opened its first franchise location in Rumania. Electric and hybrid cars can be rented at the Bucharest international airport. Rumania is the brand’s 26th country of operation.
Fleet expansion I: The Hong Kong luxury hotel Icon has added two electric shuttles from Wuzhoulong Motors to its fleet. Both have room for 14 passengers and join two Tesla Model S and a BMW i3, which the hotel already operates.
Fleet expansion II: The Berkshire Council now has three new Peugeot Partner Electric on its fleet, more than doubling its number of EVs. It already has two Nissan Leaf in operation.
