Gig Car Share is rolling out its full fleet of 260 all-electric cars in Sacramento this week. The car sharing fleet in the city consists entirely of Chevy Bolt EVs.
Gig Car Share’s Chevy Bolts have been beta testing for months, and this week marks the official full rollout of what Gig is calling the country’s largest all-electric fleet. All of Gig’s Bolts come with roof-mounted bike racks.
Last year, the city of Sacramento announced it was working with Volkswagen’s Electrify America on electric car share services for the Sacramento area. Gig Car Share’s involvement is part of Volkswagen’s “Green City” initiative for Sacramento, which came about as part of the company’s Dieselgate settlement. Gig Car Share already featured hybrid car sharing in the San Francisco Bay Area prior to its Sacramento launch.
