Hertz adds Washington D.C. to plug-in vehicle rental program

Hertz adds Washington D.C. to plug-in vehicle rental program

Hertz recently announced that its Connect by Hertz plug-in vehicle rental program will soon be offered in Washington, D.C. Hertz will launch the program in the nation's capital by adding the Chevy Volt and the Nissan Leaf to its fleet at Union Station. Mark Frissora, Hertz chairman and chief executive officer, said in a statement that Hertz is, "helping move the 'electrification of transportation' dialog from policy to practice in D.C." The company is doing this by making renting a plug-in simple. For now, though, and due to the limited availability of vehicles, Hertz will restrict access to members only. To become a member, simply sign up at the Connect by Hertz site. Hertz expects to have up to 1,000 plug-in rental vehicles available by the end of 2011. So far, only 20 or so have entered its fleet.
