    December 26, 2017 (Chicago Tribune via U.S. News & World Report)

    “…Dominant Illinois electric utility Commonwealth Edison (ComEd)] has launched a ride-sharing pilot program on Chicago's South Side that relies entirely on electric cars…[In cooperation with several partners, ComEd launched the program in mid-December to] serve residents of TRC Senior Village in the Washington Park neighborhood…A primary aim of the small-scale project is to help the utility study energy and other requirements for such plug-in cars…[It will] use Innova EV Dash vehicles. The two-seat cars are 100 percent electric and have a range of 150 miles per charge. The maximum speed is 35 mph…Drivers operate three days a week for now. The idea is for residents of TRC Senior Village to use the service for errands in or near the neighborhood.” click here for more
