Drive Electric Orlando
Drive Electric Orlando, a first-of-its-kind electric car rental initiative, launched on September 5th, 2013. Please watch the video below, and visit the Drive Electric Orlando Homepage
Every year, 56 million tourists visit Orlando, Florida. Now, every single one of them has an incredible opportunity to experience the future of American transportation, through a seamlessly planned electric vehicle network. Drive Electric Orlando’s goal is to put millions of Americans behind the wheel, and let them drive towards a cleaner, safer, and more affordable energy future, while experiencing the fun and exciting performance benefits of electric vehicles firsthand. DEO has brought together an unprecedented network of partners — from the rental car counter, to the hotel, to the theme park, and everywhere in between — to create this flawless electric vehicle community, making the Orlando vacation even more exciting and memorable than it already is.
By giving visitors an "extended test drive" of electric vehicle technology, Drive Electric Orlando will change the way that drivers from across the country think about their cars. Ultimately, by encouraging the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, DEO will help the United States take a powerful step toward ending our nation’s dependence on oil, thus making our country a safer place and helping Americans save money.
Drive Electric Orlando is made possible by the leadership of key stakeholders, all of whom have contributed to this first-of-its-kind rental car experience. Our partners include:
Drive Electric Orlando is designed for family vacationers and business travelers alike. Families have an opportunity to try out fun, quiet and convenient transportation between all of Orlando’s parks, attractions and restaurants without having to stop at the gas station. Business and convention travelers are able to add an experience that is environmentally forward-thinking, cost effective, and efficient to their trip. The program also offers several select privileges, including:
- Competitively priced EV rentals (rent a Nissan Leaf for $30/day)
- Charging infrastructure located at hotels, theme parks, and numerous other attractions
- Free valet and overnight charging at many area hotels
- Free GPS standard in all Enterprise electric vehicles
- Free use of the CLEAR security lanes at the airport on your way out of town
The Electrification Coalition is tremendously excited to bring this initiative to Orlando, a city which has already established itself as a national leader in supporting electric vehicle deployment and infrastructure. We hope that visitors of all walks of life will be sure to add this exiting experience to their itineraries when they visit the Sunshine State.Tweets about "#deolaunch"
