NEW ATTRACTION: Visitors to Orlando often try new things while on vacation: thrilling roller coasters, luxury hotels, different cuisines. Now they can try out a fully electric car — and not have to pay for gas during their vacation.

NEW PROGRAM: Drive Electric Orlando will let anyone who rents one of 15 Nissan Leaf cars from Enterprise Rent-A-Car charge the car for free in one of the about 300 charging stations in the greater Orlando area.

BUYERS WANTED: Renting a car is often a "try before you buy" scenario, said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. Electric car sales accounted for fewer than 1 percent of the 4.97 million vehicles sold through April.
