2013 Nissan LEAF

As part of the recently announced "Drive Electric Orlando" where you can rent dozens of plug-in vehicles in the Orlando, Florida area, Nissan shipped 15 LEAFs there to get in on the EV rental action.

We're certain that more LEAFs will be available to rent there soon, but for now the 15 LEAFs will be offered through the Orlando International Airport Enterprise Rent-A-Car location for less than $30 per day.

Those who rent the LEAF will get access to free charging throughout the city.

There are currently over 300 chargers in the Orlando area and more are coming soon.

For $30 a day and with free charging (valet parking is provided free of charger with the EV rentals, too) you'd have to be nuts not to rent an electric when in the Orlando area.

Why the cheap rate and all the support for plug-ins?
The answer is relatively simple really.  It's the "try before you buy" scenario that Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer says is most important here.  The end goal is to get those EV renters behind the wheel of an electric full time.
