Colorado city becomes first in the nation to utiliize electric car share

Golden, Colorado is now home to the nation’s first ever operational, all-electric car share service. The eThos Electric Car Share will be serving the Golden and Denver-metro area with American-made, all-electric sedans for short-term rental, according to the company’s press release.

The company will be using an all-electric four-door sedan called Coda, which is made by California-based manufacturer Coda Automotive. The Coda has a range of up to 125 miles on a single charge and has an EPA-rated 73 miles per gallon equivalent. Coda can also accelerate up to 60 mph in 9 seconds and has a top speed of 84 mph.

The cost to use a Coda car starts at $7 per hour and drops to $5 per hour as members log more rental hours. Qualified customers also have an opportunity to rent a Tesla Model S for half-day rentals.

Tim Prior, eThos Electric Car Share Founder had the following to say about the revolutionary car share system:

Our fleet cars are zippy and reliable. We have more electrical outlets than gas pumps in the United States. An all-electric car share service is a logical step for those looking to save money and reduce their carbon footprint.”
