Used Trucks For Sale In Sacramento – More than a hundred EVs are being deployed in car sharing initiatives brought to Sacramento by the Envoy and Electrify America. 142 Volkswagen e-Golf electric cars will be available in the Sacramento area in early 2019 in 71 locations.
The first EV is located near Whispering Pines Apartments at Meadowview. They can be rented based on minutes, hours or days. One of the founding delegates, Aric Ohana and Ori Sagie, answered several questions about the program for CleanTechnica.

1. How many vehicles will be used in an electric car sharing program?
The initial placement in early November is 20 vehicles in 10 multi-family properties. As of early 2019, our fleet will eventually feature more than 140 vehicles in more than 70 different locations in Sacramento as part of the program with Electrify America. Each vehicle will have a special level 2 charger. We will also mobilize more vehicles and chargers with other programs in Sacramento and also nationally.
2. Why was Sacramento chosen as a location?
Sacramento is the fastest growing California city. This provides the perfect setting for evaluating new mobility solutions and will serve as an example for all of California, and for other cities in all countries that want to add EV infrastructure.
In addition, California’s political efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from gas-powered cars and achieve carbon neutrality (such as the measure of clean energy recently passed SB 100), are very much in tune with the benefits provided by shared mobility technology. According to UC Berkely, households with access to car sharing services can reduce GHG emissions by an average of 41 percent.
3. What is the cost per minute, per hour, and per day?
Vehicles currently in use can cost only 15 ¢ / minute.
4. Do participants join membership or how do they register in the program?
The community members, workplaces and hotels that we serve can download the Messenger app (Android and Apple) for free and be given access to use our vehicle. There is no membership or initial fee to start. Property wishing to join the program and offer mobility their messenger envoys as a convenience can nominate their property here: https://www.envoythere.com/onboard
5. What is the rental process like?
Simple – after the application has been downloaded, the driver can register to use the vehicle to use immediately or schedule for the future and order by minute, hour or day. Drivers can use the app to check vehicle availability, unlock / lock cars, and start / end their bookings. All Messenger vehicles go home and must be returned to their pickup location.
6. Does EV come with insurance, or does the driver pay extra for insurance?
The driver is protected by the Messenger insurance. Per minute rates include insurance, maintenance and roadside assistance.
7. Is there a specific target audience for sharing EV cars, or is it all local people who can drive and have good driving records?
Sharing cars can benefit all demographics from luxury properties to low-income people because it can reduce dependence on private car ownership, reduce traffic congestion and help real estate developers reduce parking requirements. As part of this program, seventy-five percent of the distribution of Envoys in the city will serve disadvantaged people. Vehicles that are distributed not only reduce driving-related costs such as eliminating car payments, car insurance, and parking fees, users in low-income areas can use Messenger-branded vehicles to participate in joint assignment and performance economics.
8. Are you going to launch in other cities in California and outside?
Envoys are already available in areas outside Sacramento including Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, and New York with plans for immediate national launch. In recent news, Messenger launched a new deployment in Los Angeles and San Francisco and announced an agreement with Eversource Energy to bring EVs to Massachusetts. We will also announce other launch plans in December 2018.
9. Where will the EVs be refilled?
Envoys install level 2 chargers for each vehicle that is deployed on property dedicated to Messenger vehicles only and are free to users. Users can also charge in one of the thousands of public / universal chargers in the wild – many of which are free also depend on the charging company.
10. What is the range of EV in the program?
The range depends on the brand and model of the car, but for Volkswagen eGolfs, many of which are featured on our Sacramento site, have an EPA 125 mile rating. The messenger fleet of all electric vehicles including Fiat 500e, Nissan Leaf, and even Tesla depends on the program and its properties.
11. Do you have your own charger, and if yes, how much?
Vehicle messengers will be deployed with special Level 2 chargers. This Level 2 charger will be provided specifically for Messenger vehicles and will be free to use for the driver. Property owners must provide electricity to charge the charger.
12. Who fixes and maintains EV?
Envoys manage all vehicle maintenance including washing and routine checks. If the driver finds a problem with his vehicle, they can contact the Messenger support and report the damage directly through the Existing Messenger application. The envoy will then send a team to inspect the car, and if there is a problem, they will provide the property with a temporary replacement.
