If you are an electric vehicle owner in California, you can get a one-time incentive of $50 for sharing your electric vehicle through Getaround.

This incentive is a part of the partnership between PlugShare, which makes apps for Electric Vehicles, and Getaround, which provides a platform for peer-to-peer car sharing. PlugShare members can take advantage of this incentive if they sign up to share their car.

Peer-to-peer lending is growing, and this scheme is useful to electric vehicle owners and enthusiasts. Owners can get a small amount for being a part of this scheme, and other enthusiasts who care for a cleaner environment get to drive an electric vehicle without having to purchase one. Moreover, once people are exposed to electric vehicles without buying one, this will hopefully encourage individuals to purchase an eco-friendly car in the future.
