Ever wanted to rent an electric vehicle for a long weekend, or maybe longer?
It could be that you’re trying to make up your mind about a specific model, or maybe you want to drive an EV for the first time. Fortunately, there are now rental companies that specialise in electric cars!
Let’s get plugged in…
