Part of going green, South Sioux City, Nebraska is leasing a new all-electric Nissan Leaf.
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb (KTIV) -
South Sioux City, Nebraska has a new "ride." The city is leasing a new all-electric Nissan Leaf.
The cost to operate the car is about $240 a year, a lot less than the cost to run a car with a gasoline engine.
The city was picked to be part of a nationwide promotion to get a free ChargePoint Electric Charging Station. Owners of an electric vehicle can reserve a spot for recharging by mobile phone or computer.
The five-passenger car is quiet, and boasts a smooth ride.
"It's a very beautiful car, I think it's one that will really look good in town, it's one I think that the public's going to like knowing that it's being fueled by what we sell as the state of Nebraska, public power," said Lance Hedquist, South Sioux City Administrator.
Right now, the city is testing out the car, and the station, before expanding by adding more cars.
