Hertz bring electric Mitsubishi car hire to London

Mitsubishi Electric CarCar hire giant Hertz have revealed plans to introduce two of the Mitsubishi i-MiEV models to its fleet of hire cars in London.

The car rental company announced they’ve signed a deal with the car manufacturer Mitsubishi to offer their electric eco-friendly cars for hire throughout the city of London. Just two of the electric Mitsubishi cars will be available to hire initially, with more models expected to join the car hire fleet by the end of the year.

Hertz’s car hire rates for the Mitsubishi i-MiEV are very reasonable and start from just £4 an hour, or £40 for a day long hire period. The car rental firm has also had 16 chargemaster points install around the city and along the route between Heathrow and central London to allow customers access to a range of points where the electric cars can recharge 80% of their battery in just 30 minutes.

A special technical support system has also been set up to help customers who may have not encountered an electric vehicle before to assist with any teething problems in operating the environmentally friendly car.
