Hertz has decided to broaden their vehicle fleet by adding a couple electric cars. Available for customers in San Francisco and those a part of Hertz’s On Demand program, renters can now choose from the Nissan LEAF, the Smart EV, or the Mitsubishi i.
Included with the EVs up for rental, Hertz will also provide an in-car connection service that links up with their 24-Hour member care. The service will provide the renters with information on charging station, alternate drop-ff return points and roadside assistance.
Additionally, if customers are still worried about running out of charge from “range anxiety,” Hertz offers a comprehensive Q&A page on their website to help first-time EV renters.
Hertz also added that unlike their gasoline-powered rentals, which have to be returned with a full tank of gas unless otherwise specified, EVs don’t have to be returned with a full charge.
