EV (LEAF) car sharing in Helsingborg, Sweden

A few pics of an EV car sharing scheme I happened upon in Helsingborg, Sweden a couple of weeks ago. From what I can tell reading the website, rentals start at 59 Swedish Kronor per hour (around $9) for off-peak rentals, and they have rates for peak times (minimum 4 hours, I think) and also for weekend and monthly renters. Note the solar powered canopy and how the standard Nissan brick is used for charging, with the plug-end secured under the locking hood on the power pedestal. It was not clear if charging is available to non-car sharing customers, but only one of the three spaces (the middle one) actually had markings on the ground indicating "Reserver Elbilspool" (Reserved For Electric Car Pool). Only coincidental too, I think, that all 3 cars parked happened to be LEAFs...I believe they do (or plan to) offer other makes and models:

That is so awesome!!! I would totally have done that when I was there in '11 if they had been doing that. That's such a beautiful part of the country too.

I was by the Dunkers Kulturhus location (there are two locations in town) twice in the space of an hour on the day we visited (a Monday). The first time, around 3pm, only the middle car was there. By the time I'd returned all 3 slots were occupied. So I'm guessing that it's a fairly popular service.

Would like to have seen the driver of the middle Leaf get out of the car after that park job. :lol:
