Orlando - A car rental company is offering a fleet of plug-in electric vehicles in Orlando - and drivers won't have to pay for fuel under a recently launched initiative.

The new programme, called Drive Electric Orlando, was announced on Thursday morning.

Tourists who rent one of the 15 available Nissan Leaf cars from Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Orlando can charge the fully electric vehicles at hotels, near theme parks and even outside of city hall - all for free. There are about 300 charging stations in the greater Orlando area - and under the programme, AAA will charge the car for free if it runs out of juice.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer says the programme is a great way to introduce the cars to potential new buyers - whether tourists or city residents.
