If you’ve been wanting to take a spin in an electric car, look no further than your next Hawaii vacation.
GreenCar Hawaii has just been awarded a $200,000 grant to bring electric vehicles to Hawaii’s hospitality industry. As a result, the company will be adding four to six electric vehicles to their current hybrid fleet.
According to the company, “visitors to Hawaii will get the chance to personally see and feel how an EV operates and take that experience home, and Hawaii will have fewer cars operating on fossil fuel on the road. It’s a good boost in the right direction.”
GreenCar Hawaii’s electric vehicles are part of statewide strategy whose ultimate goal is reaching a clean energy efficiency goal of 70%. You can read about more of the state’s electric vehicle plans here.
About a year ago, GreenCar commenced operations with a fleet of four hybrid vehicles stationed at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort in Poipu. The vehicles rent by the hour or by the day. The company expects to soon have additional hospitality partners.
