In Athens, Georgia, JuiceCar Rents Out Chevy Volts and Nissan LEAFs By The Hour
A company by the name of JuiceCar is renting electric vehicles by the day or hour in Athens, Georgia.
JuiceCar has both Nissan LEAFs and Chevy Volts in its fleet and is offering the vehicles for rent in an effort to show that EVs are both desirable and suitable for all.
JuiceCar, located at Hotel Indigo in downtown Athens, rents the Nissan LEAF for $5 per hour or $25 per day and rents the Volt for $7 per hour or $35 per day. Both the daily and hourly rates seem reasonable to us.
Mike Jerue of JuiceCar states:
“I’ve always thought owning a car can be more of a burden than a benefit. You need it maybe two hours of the day, but you need to find a place to park it, you have to insure it, you have to put gas in it, you have to maintain it. All of that stuff is for a piece of equipment that you use a couple hours a day.”
So why not just rent then? That’s what Jerue is hoping the people of Athens, Georgia will do.
