Did you know San Diego is home to North America's only all-electric carsharing fleet? The City of San Diego and SDG&E worked with Daimler’s Car2Go to make the San Diego launch of its plug-in electric vehicle car sharing pilot a big success. The City continues to work with SDG&E to increase the number of public-access charging stations throughout the Car2Go targeted region. The team is working collectively to educate the community about the benefits of the pilot program and expects to increase public interest in electric vehicles in general and encourage the growth of plug-in electric vehicle industry in San Diego. Data gained from Car2Go will provide information on where charging stations are most needed.
In November 2013, Car2Go celebrated their second anniversary in San Diego. Since Car2Go first arrived in 2011, they've increased their fleet size to 385 electric Smart Fortwo cars, with more than 24,000 registered San Diegans.
