To help out the road warriors out there who are also eco warriors, the
Indianapolis Zoo is going green — again! As part of the renovations to
our Entry Plaza, we've added two stations in
the the main parking lot where you can recharge your electric cars!
Located near the front of the east end of the parking lot by the picnic
area, the two recharging stations are available for a nominal charge for
either four or eight hours. Just ask the guest services representative
at the front gate to get you hooked up and ready while you enjoy a leisurely
visit with the animals at the Zoo.
can see how the stations work in this photo of a Chevrolet Volt getting all
charged up, courtesy of our friends at
Penske Automotive. The
Volt is the first electric car that runs on more than electricity, with an
electric battery that allows you to drive gas-free for an EPA-estimated 35
miles, plus an onboard gas generator that produced electricity so you can go
up to a total of 375 miles on a full tank of gas.
