Hertz and Enterprise Both Now Renting the Nissan Leaf

Hertz (NYSE: HTZ ) and Enterprise Both Now Renting the Nissan Leaf

Electric vehicles are generating quite the buzz this year, with the Nissan (OTC: NSANY.pk) Leaf and other popular models finally rolling off the lines and into the hands of anxious consumers.  By the end of the year, there will be a surprising number of EVs available on the market, and in many states, it is also possible to rent these vehicles.  Enterprise, the popular auto rental chain, currently rents both the Chevy Volt and the Nissan Leaf in 6 states across the US, and Hertz has just announced that it, too, will soon be offering electric vehicles for use as rentals, although initially only in San Francisco.

The introduction of EVs through rental car companies is one that offers a number of prospective benefits.  Consumers seem to be a bit skeptical about purchasing the cars, wondering if the decreased range and the rarity of charging stations means that they are likely to end up stranded somewhere with no way to get home or charge their vehicles, and the rental option actually provides them with a chance to experience the cars for themselves.  Customers will find that the Nissan Leaf has a range of about 100 miles before it needs a charge, which should be sufficient for a day’s activities for most.  Many of the hotels offering the cars as part of their packages will also provide charging stations onsite so that renters can charge the vehicles overnight.

Both Hertz and Enterprise are renting the cars on an hourly basis, which can be a good idea for travelers looking to just give the cars a test drive.  Because an hour with one of these cars is considerably cheaper than taking a taxi almost anywhere, the companies are hopeful that many will want to give EVs a chance.  The Nissan Leaf is currently available through both companies, and many hotels and others partnering with the rental car companies are offering perks like free valet parking and complimentary charging for customers who elect to use EVs.

It may take some time for the Nissan Leaf to take off nationwide, and it will certainly take more than just home charging stations and a few public stations to make it feasible for owners to take the cars on a cross country trip, but offerings like Hertz and Enterprise are making are providing consumers with a good chance to experience EVs firsthand and to see why they are an excellent alternative to traditional vehicles.  As this happens and demand increases, more stations will appear and cars like the Leaf will be able to go virtually anywhere their owners desire.
