Nickel Ride Finds EVs Are So Affordable … They Can Give Rides For Free

The company uses advertising revenue to pay for the drivers and cars. They have advertising in the app, on the outside of the cars, and on a screen inside the vehicles. I’m sure tips are accepted also. It seems like a great way to get a free ride and help the environment at the same time!

Nickel Ride started off with neighborhood electric vehicles (similar to golf carts) about a year ago, but have recently upgraded to the Nissan Leaf. Have you seen this in other regions? Is it in your region? Maybe it’s a business you would like to start if it you think it would work in your area.

I have been a software engineer for over 30 years, first developing EDI software, then developing data warehouse systems. Along the way, I've also had the chance to help start a software consulting firm and do portfolio management. In 2010, I took an interest in electric cars because gas was getting expensive. In 2015, I started reading CleanTechnica and took an interest in solar, mainly because it was a threat to my oil and gas investments. Follow me on Twitter @atj721 Tesla investor.
