Portland was home to one of the nation’s first car-sharing programs and continues to lead today, by playing host to three very unique car-sharing companies, each with their own rental system designed to fit a specific consumer’s needs. As different as these companies are, however, they do have one thing in common: each has recently added electric vehicles to their roster of available cars!  
In addition to signaling an emerging trend in the car-sharing industry, this change may also end up having a positive impact on the consumer market for electric vehicles.  As many observers have commented, car-sharing programs provide the ideal, low-risk opportunity for drivers to experience electric drive technology and plant the idea that their next car should be an electric car.
