Will We All Be Hiring Electric Cars In The USA?

Hi all,

Here at usrentacar.co.uk we try to remain as green as possible, so when Inissan leaf read that Enterprise Car Rental ( Alamo car hire’s Parent Company)  and Hertz believe that they could be offering electric cars from as early as January 2011  I had to look a deeper in to it.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car,  made public their plans  to offer around 500 Nissan Leaf all-electric cars last week, initially at dealerships in Los Angeles, San Diego, Portland and Seattle.

Hertz announced a few months ago that it  to would be offering the Nissan Leafs next year at a handful of locations in the U.S.  including New York, Washington and San Francisco.

About the Leaf

The Nissan Leaf is a 5 dr hatchback compact car. A fully charged Leaf has a range of about 100 miles however it takes up to eight hours at a charging station or 20 hours from a standard home outlet to reach maximum.

Problems

Will Enterprise and Hertz price normal customers out of having an electric car?

At present if you return a normal car without petrol you’d be charged a fee, what would happen if you return the electric car empty?

Would you hire an electric car?

How much would you be willing to pay ,fully insured for a week?

Kind regards,

James
