WWF and AutoShare make driving an electric vehicle easy for the holidays
WWF-Canada and AutoShare have partnered to promote easy and affordable electric vehicle (EV) use this holiday season. Under the Green Traveller Program, you can register at AutoShare for only $29 (regularly $129) and use an EV for free until January 30, 2013. It’s a great option to replace a regular gas vehicle (maybe even permanently!) or to give as a gift. For more details on this offer, visit http://autoshare.com/EV.html.

Choosing an electric vehicle over a regular car in Ontario has pretty big environmental benefits. A pure electric vehicle produces 60% less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions than a vehicle of the same size that is powered by gas. Because of this potential, WWF-Canada has identified EVs as an important tool for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from road transportation in Canada and we are working to help make the transition to EVs easier for Canadians.
Renting or test driving an EV is one thing that Canadians can do to help champion WWF-Canada’s transportation work. By supporting companies that are playing a leadership role (like AutoShare) we will inspire even more action!
