Hertz to start Coda electric sedan rentals in 2011

Coda electric Sedan

Coda announced at the 2010 LA Auto Show that its electric sedan will be delayed until the second half of 2011. Around that time Hertz Corporation, the world’s largest general use airport car rental brand, said that it will rent Coda’s electric sedan through Hertz’s California locations as part of the Hertz Global EV program.

“Hertz’s partnership with CODA Automotive is another element of our long term strategy to provide consumers with electric vehicle access on a global scale,” said Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “As we continue to build out our EV and PHEV infrastructure, we get closer to making electric vehicle travel an everyday reality.”

Taking about six hours to recharge from empty on a 220-volt charging system, the Coda Sedan is capable of a range of 120-130 miles.

The CODA Sedan will join vehicles from Nissan and other manufacturers as part of Hertz Global EV fleet.
