Carzonrent have signed up with Mahindra to provide e2o in this offer.
Aanyone above 18 with:
- A valid licence,
- Proof of residence and
- Other valid documents can hire the car.
The experiment started with five vehicles and will expand its fleet based on the demand.
"The tie up with Mahindra Reva also enhances the electric vehicle charging infrastructure in India with over 100 re-charge points at prime locations in Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru,'' he said.
Carzonrent expect good response in Mumbai where fuel costs and car rents are very high.
* An electric car can be hired for Rs 200 per hour; entire day for a lump sum of Rs 800
* Cheaper than diesel vehicles (rent Rs 1,400)
* Free recharging facility to be provided at various locations.
You will have to wait for 4hrs while your car recharges and then drive for 80 to 100 Kms (about an hour’s drive) before you again wait to charge L. So technically you can drive only 80Kms in 5Hrs. This will mean you can drive only about 5 hrs in a day (24) with breaks of 4hrs every 5th hr.
It would have been great if carzonrent could just swap the batteries when you are low on charge. This will save on the 4 hrs charging time and make the offer on par with the other Petrol Cars.
