A new Tesla Model X rental scheme from Green Commuter that’s making use of an Indiegogo campaign for fundraising will be offering rental rates as low as $10 an hour or $150 a weekend, according to a new press release from the company.

There are a wide variety of different options available to those interested, including: a variety of hourly options, package options, and a $25 “pay as you go membership” for sporadic users, amongst others.

The pay-as-you-go membership option waives annual membership fees, and monthly commitments, at the price of slightly higher hourly fees ($18/hour).

It’s worth noting that there are limited quantities of the various packages available through the campaign page (found here), so those interested should hurry over. It should also be clarified that the rental service will be based around the Los Angeles region — though, expansion elsewhere is a possibility.

“Unlike other campaigns, our perks do away with the useless swag and actually make use of our model. Every perk offers a killer deal for our signature car sharing service, which utilizes the Tesla Model X. If you want to support a business that reduces traffic, greenhouse gas emissions and commuting costs in the most stylish of ways, opt for the modestly priced donation perk off $25 and help us reach a city near you,” stated Green Commuter CEO Gustavo Occhiuzzo.

The press release provides more:

“Drivers who want to rent the car on weekdays will pay just $100/month for 8 hours of driving during the month, with a minimum rental period of one hour. Monday through Friday, in the Tesla Model X. This will be a lifetime rate as long as they continue to pay monthly with no lapses. If they need more time, they will be charged $12.50/hour. When the campaign reaches 200 members, ‘Weekdays’ plan members will receive an extra ½ hour credit. If the campaign reaches its goal of 400 members in this category everyone earns another ½ hour – for a total of 9 hours a month. The roll-out of the packages will begin in December 2016. Drivers can also choose the Weekdays Plus package which provides 25 hours per month of driving for $250.”

The company’s proprietary software will reportedly allow its Tesla Model X fleet to be used seamlessly both by Green Commuter members who sign up through Indiegogo and by companies looking to shuttle groups of employees to work regularly.

“Our goal is to provide a great vanpool and car share experience which is affordable, desirable and sustainable. We’re starting in Los Angeles, one of the most forward thinking cities in the country, but one that has great environmental challenges and congestion issues. Our members will experience a better commute or a great car sharing experience in one of the most exciting, advanced cars on the road — the Tesla Model X, while reducing their carbon footprint and alleviating congestion on our roads.”
