An all-electric car is being added to the fleet of a car-sharing service in Chicago.

Zipcar is launching its first large-scale electric vehicle pilot program here in the city.

Starting Thursday, five Chevrolet Volts are available to Zipcar members at five locations across Chicago. The service plans to add up to 20 additional electric cars to its fleet this year.

The Chevy Volts are available by the hour starting at $10 an hour.
