As Mayor Nutter mentioned on Monday's Greenworks event at Sister Cities Park, PhillyCarShare “is launching the nation’s largest publicly accessible network of American-made electric vehicles.”
And there, curbside, was one of them. In cherry red.
This is part of what they're calling the Philadelphia EV Micro-Community project, which combines the cars, charging stations and, presumably, drivers willing to try them.
The EV community has always faced the question: Which comes first, the cars or the charging stations? This project brings both. PhillyCarShare now has 16 Chevy Volts in its fleet, and plans for 20 charging stations.
