Green Vehicles Hit the UK from Hertz Car Rental


Hertz Car Hire in London is taking a step in the right direction with the cooperation of the city’s mayor. Hertz plans to add two Mitsubishi i-Mievs to their fleet as well as 16 charging stations. The i-Miev is an interesting looking vehicle that seats 4 passengers and some luggage comfortably. It is a four-door sedan with a capacity of 90 miles on a single charge. The vehicle can charge up in around an hour at a charging station and can be charged over-night just by being plugged into a regular power socket. The jump to greener technologies comes with a heightened demand for the fully electric vehicles. As the vehicles become more prevalent, the number of charging stations will definitely increase.

Electric vehicles have already been introduced in the United States, in select areas. As a matter of fact, Simon Property Group which owns many of the major shopping malls in the country has just installed electric car charging stations at Orlando’s Florida Mall and the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, California. These vehicles are slowly coming into popularity, but it seems like the change isn’t happening quickly enough for some. The price of fuel is just crazy! If the price keeps increasing, there will most certainly be a major shift to this new technology.

London’s mayor plans on making his city the capital of electric vehicles in Europe. With the ability to gain 90 miles on a single charge, the possibilities of traveling around without needing to stop for petrol will be highly plausible in fact inevitable.
