The second EV rental in Estonia launched today

Thu Jul 11, 2013 5:36 am

Today the second electric car rental started in Tallinn and Tartu. Estonian Government subsidised Electric Mobility program (ELMO) is offering now Nissan Leafs and Mitsubishi iMievs for short time rent. The first EV car rental, Minirent, was launched more than year ago, but this company operates only Toyota Priuses and Nissan Leafs.
ELMO rental has lower prices, but high penalties.
