Los Angeles Feature: Evercar
Did you know there are nearly 7.5 million vehicles registered in Los Angeles County and that the City of the Angels boasts the worst Ozone rank in America? It’s unfortunate, but it’s true.
Fortunately, Evercar has made available a fleet of electric and hybrid vehicles in cities throughout Los Angeles County, for as little as $5 per hour (including unlimited miles, fuel, maintenance and insurance), for people who want to drive for rideshare and delivery companies like Uber, Lyft, Postmates, DoorDash and others.
Evercar’s simple pricing model and driver-friendly terms of service covers all the costs of owning or leasing a vehicle and makes it possible for more Angelenos to earn money driving in the on-demand economy. The company also helps improve local air quality by taking gas-guzzling, high-polluting cars off the road and replacing them with clean, environmentally-friendly cars. By using electric cars, Evercar drivers have displaced nearly 10,000 gallons of gas and saved 85 metric tons of CO2 from being emitted.
“Our service makes it easy for multiple drivers to share an electric vehicle, and as a result we’re able to put more on-demand drivers in Los Angeles behind the wheel of safe, affordable, environmentally-friendly vehicles,” explains Michael Brylawski, Evercar CEO. “In doing so, we’re creating economic opportunity and good-paying jobs for a community of on-demand drivers while simultaneously improving local air quality.”
Today, Evercar has more than 60 shared vehicles in service in Los Angeles County. Nearly 300 drivers have joined the Evercar community to date, and the company is working tirelessly to recruit hundreds of others. Evercar has enough financing to put more than 1,000 EVs on the road.
Currently Evercar vehicles are located in Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Marina de Rey, Inglewood, and Redondo Beach. There are plans to continue adding locations more locations around Los Angeles County throughout the year.
