The London-based branch of the rental car company will be the first in the UK to include electric vehicles in its rental fleet. Twenty Chevrolet Volts will be introduced to Enterprise locations in the Greater London area with charging facilities throughout.
“[The Volt] offers an ideal blend of technological innovation and ease of use, with the petrol engine providing the extended range rental drivers often need and making the vehicle simple to refuel,” says Mike Nigro, UK & Ireland managing director for Enterprise. He goes on to add that the electric vehicles in the fleet give both private individuals as well as businesses a chance to “get to grips with the electric driving experience themselves.”
If the London launch is successful, the company plans to expand electric fleet vehicle offerings to other areas within the UK.
