Hertz Corp. said Tuesday said it will begin renting electric vehicles this fall.
Hertz has an agreement with Nissan to bring the Nissan Leaf electric car to certain U.S. and European locations. Hertz said it also will supply electrics and plug-in hybrids from other manufacturers, including General Motors, Toyota and Mitsubishi.
Hertz, which has the most airport car-rental locations worldwide, said it is uniquely positioned to introduce drivers to plug-in hybrids and all-electric vehicles.
Park Ridge, N.J.-based Hertz made the announcement at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative in New York.
