HOURCAR Multifamily: Equitable Electric Mobility

HOURCAR is a nonprofit carshare organization making big transportation changes in the Twin Cities.

In 2022, Hourcar is expanding its two-way car service through the Multifamily Pilot Project. Leveraging funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, the pilot will add a total of 50 completely electric vehicles to our fleet, placing hubs with EV chargers at multifamily buildings around the Twin Cities metropolitan area, especially affordable housing. These vehicles will be available for all HOURCAR members to use. The project aims to increase electric mobility options for residents at income levels that have been traditionally underserved and decrease barriers to building electric vehicle charging at multifamily dwellings

This is the first project of its kind in the State of Minnesota and one of the first of its size in North America, including 25 total properties with 50 shared electric vehicles. 

Be the Face of Multifamily

We’re currently looking for local and future members to be the face of the Multifamily Project. This means your likeness will be used on our website, other apartment buildings websites, postcards, social media, and more. 

The Multifamily Project is the largest initiative of its kind in America. Minnesota is home to some of the most diverse populations across the nation, and we need you to help us show it off.
