It's unclear exactly when Communauto* will hit the ground, though earlier reports have pointed to the company launching a fleet of Nissan Leaf EVs by the end of this year.
CBC News reports that rates haven't been finalized as of yet, though Communauto has released a few estimates. Users could pay somewhere around $14 an hour with the maximum fee capped at $65 per day, Canadian. That equates to around $14.66 per hour and a little over $68 per day here in the land of apple pie and inflation.
Communauto says that it plans to mimic similar successful car sharing programs elsewhere, including the German company Car2Go. Thanks for the tip, Eric V!
