Hertz adds i-MiEV to its rental fleet
Part of Hertz’s Global Electric Vehicle Programme, launched last December, the deal will result in i-MiEVs being rolled out at locations throughout the country during 2011, starting with two vehicles in London.
The i-MiEV joins Hertz’s Green Collection vehicles, all of which offer CO2 emissions under 140g/km and fuel economy of up to 65mpg. Hertz has also invested in 16 charging stations, each with two plug points, all located in the capital.
Michel Taride, President, Hertz International, said: 'Our partnership with Mitsubishi Motors in the UK to provide i-MiEV vehicles to our Connect by Hertz members and Hertz customers in the UK is a vital part of our global Electric Vehicle and sustainability initiatives.
'We are excited that from today, our customers can experience the joy of 100% electric driving with the i-MiEVs, which offer surprising power and a smooth, quiet ride.
