Last night was car2go’s one year anniversary celebration in San Diego! San Diego is the first car2go city that offers an all-electric fleet. In the company’s first year here, more than 12,500 San Diego residents have become car2go members. Collectively, San Diegans have taken more than 200,000 trips around town.
With an average of 5,000-6,000 trips made per week and an average of 5 miles per trip, that’s over 25,000 miles traveled per week.
Last night, car2go unveiled a new charging depot featuring 30 charging stations in their effort to continue to bring convenient electric cars for all of San Diego. This new charging depot will also allow them to have more flexibility with keeping their fleet charged, opening more possibilities to help expand and improve the way they serve the community.
There were a lot of people who showed up for the occasion, including Jacques Chirazi, Program Manager for Clean Tech at the City of San Diego and our Clean Cities Coalition Board Member, who presented a mayoral resolution deeming November 29th as “Car2go Day”.
We’re very excited to see how car2go continues to grow in San Diego and congratulate them on a successful first year!
