The Smart way to drive

Cars2Go is a local rental company which requires membership. The current cost is just over $70 per day.
Members enjoy free vehicle re-charging, free parking, 150 miles per day, insurance, maintenance, cleaning, GPS navigation, 24/7 customer support services, and roadside assistance at no extra cost.
Plus the car has zero emissions. I hope the idea catches on and the prices go down.

Love the shot....very eye catching car....good concept if they brought the price down...peeps are environmentally conscious until they feel gouged.....and I wouldn't want to get in an accident in one....they'd have to peel it off you at the morgue methinks!

If you split it with a friend it's not too bad. The price has to come down though, to make it more enticing. Nicely framed.

If everyone would agree to go this way, our world could last a little longer. Cool shot , Walter. v

What a cute little car and charming capture of it. It reminds me of the BMW Isetta, which I have pictured in my BMW gallery, but obviously is far more energy efficient and good for the environment. V.

Great idea only if the cost is brought down...this car looks cute though...V

Good idea; let's hope the price drops significantly.

Nicely done photo. Maybe OK if you only drive a couple of days a year but this car only costs around $12,000. At $70/day if you drove one for 172 days you could have bought it outright. Also I'm not sure I'd want to drive one around here in Wintertime.

Great idea but I cant see it catching on that much, seems expensive also. Nice capture of this eco friendly scheme though.

$70/day? Isn't it cheaper to just rent a larger, safer car?
Philly also has a car share program which is a great idea for city dwellers where parking fees are quite high. No idea what it costs to belong to the Philly Share program.

An interesting development. Apart from price, 150 miles isn't that much. Nice capture.

A ride in a Tuk-Tuk in Thailand put me off anything the size of a matchbox on a road full of vehicles who's wheels are at eye level :O)

Neat little car.

Very cool concept and a great story telling shot to illustrate it. ~BV~

Interesting little electric car! The scheme sounds ok. Tried one?
Neat shot by the way ; )
