Hertz To Add Nissan Leaf EV to Rental Fleet

First there was the rent-a-racer. Now there’s the rent-an-EV.

Hertz, the world’s largest auto rental outfit, is adding the Nissan Leaf electric vehicle to its rental fleets in Europe and the United States next year. The announcement follows Nissan’s saying it will begin taking reservations for the car in April and begin putting them in driveways in December.

“The partnership with Nissan seals Hertz’s commitment to green-car rentals and firmly demonstrates our mission to advancing zero-emission mobility on a global scale,” said Mark P. Frissora, Hertz chairman and CEO.

Nissan is of course stoked by the announcement, which will give people a chance to try out an EV without forking out the dough to get one. No word yet on what Nissan’s going to charge for the Leaf, but it’s said to be shooting for something in the $26,000 to $33,000 ballpark.
