GreenCar Hawaii launches electric vehicles sharing project

GreenCar Hawaii launched the service Friday at the Double Tree by Hilton Alana Waikiki hotel. Four electric cars Nissan Leaf will be available to rent for $15 per hour or $95 per day.

Hotel General Manager Tom Herman says it’s an alternative to traditional car rental while contributing to Hawaii’s clean energy goals.

Reservations can be made online, by phone or at a kiosk in the hotel’s lobby. Guests check in at the kiosk to print an access voucher and the car is delivered by the hotel valet. The company was one of six selected by the state for the EV Ready Grant Program.
