Traverse City, Michigan gets pretty touristy in the summertime, and this year some of those visitors can cruise the sights in a zero-emission Kurrent powered by renewable energy. E Company will begin offering two- and four-seat NEVs for rent from their base in the Traverse City railroad depot where new solar panels will soon be installed, according to the AP. The city government could get behind the plan for the cars if it endorses a proposal to allow the cars to park free at city meters.
Parking might be free, but the car'll cost ya: a half-day rental for the two-seater will be $60. Whew.
