A discussion with representatives from the Office of Low Emissions Vehicles, Transport for London’s Source London and PricewaterhouseCoopers on the electric vehicle (EV) revolution was hosted by Hertz last week. The car hire giant chose the occasion to release figures which show that the average electric vehicle rental is six hours, with an average journey of 16.81 miles. Hertz offers a diverse fleet of EVs and plug-in hybrids including Chevrolet, GM, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Renault, Tesla and Vauxhall.
Whilst electric vehicles have become a reality in London, the speakers suggested that collaboration will be key to accelerating EV adoption more widely throughout the UK for both consumers and businesses.
Speaking at the event, Michel Taride, President, Hertz International and Executive Vice President, Hertz Corporation, said: “The car rental industry, local and central government, charging station providers, businesses and consumers now need to come together and each play their role in spreading the EV revolution throughout the UK.”
In less than a year, Hertz’s global EV programme and strategy, which is part of the Hertz rental offer and Hertz on Demand car share, has grown from a vision to a market reality in more than 10 cities across three continents. www.aerbt.co.uk/article/3921&phrase=hertz
