Renault electric cars to be available at Hertz European outlets

US-based Hertz Corporation has signed a Letter of Intent to add Renault’s new range of electric vehicles (EV) to its European hire fleets and car sharing club Connect by Hertz.  It will be one of the first rental operators to offer Renault’s Twizy for hire, and will also rent the ZOE, Fluence ZE (zero emission) and Kangoo ZE models.

Hertz plans to add 500 units of the Renault range to its fleet over the next two years across Europe.  The partnership will form part of the European development of Hertz’s Global Electric Vehicle Programme, launched in December 2010.  The programme is designed to bring a variety of ZE electric vehicles to the general public.  Vehicles will be available from the beginning of 2012.

The range of Renault EVs caters to a wide range of people, from city dwellers to families.  Twizy is a small, nimble and practical car, ideal for city driving.  Fluence ZE fills the family car segment, while the Kangoo ZE is an electric van for fleets and business users. www.hertz.com
