Hertz electrifies London

The latest 100% electric Nissan LEAF model has been introduced by Hertz to the fleet at its main London locations, providing tourists and local residents with an affordable and sustainable driving option.

Hertz’s customers are now able to rent a modern, zero-emissions Nissan with unlimited mileage, at a special launch price of £9.99 a day (up to 24 hours).  Customers have the added benefit of being exempted from London’s congestion charge when driving in the centre, as well as free parking in designated areas.

The new Nissans are available to rent from Hertz UK’s branches at Heathrow Airport, Marble Arch, Old Kent Road, Russell Square and London City Airport, which are all equipped with charge points.  Customers can also re-energise vehicles at over 1,600 electric vehicle (EV) power outlets across London.
The Nissan LEAF features a satellite-based Intelligent Navigation System that indicates the driving range and proximity to charge points.  The car is equipped with a number of driving modes and charging options as well as a B-Mode for enhanced braking response to maximize energy, given that its lithium-ion battery is located underneath the boot. 

Also available is Zap-Map, a national website covering all aspects of charging points and electric vehicles.  www.zap-map.com   www.hertz.co.uk
