The Volt [4] joins the company’s Smart ForTwo Electric Drive EV/PHEV options as one of the newest EVs available to the general public through the Connect by Hertz [5] car sharing program in New York. They have more than 175 locations throughout the city, with a fleet of over 400 EVs. The renting of the Volt [6] further solidifies Hertz’s commitment to making green transportation widely available for retail consumers. If you’re dying to get behind the wheel [6] of an EV but you have no need to rent a car, Hertz is offering a test drive program [7] for the newest electric vehicles on the market, including the new Prius [8], the latest Smart Car [9], and the Nissan Leaf [10]. Already driven a new EV? Tell us what you think!
