A London hotel is set to offer electric cars for hire to its guests free of charge.
The car, supplied by rental firm, Move About, will then be hire out for out at £4 per hour, £20 for a half-day or £30 a day from October 1, 2010 when the hotel ends its freebie offer. Even so, this apparently works out cheaper than bike hire for the family.
The car can be re-charged for free at the hotel too.The EV’ie is based on the Citroen C1 and seats up to five people. It has a 60-75-mile range, a top speed of 60mph and a full charge time of six to seven hours. VIDEO
The car is also exempt from the city’s congestion charge and qualifies for free parking in many areas.
