Enterprise Rent-a Car, Hertz and Avis. What do they all have in common? Yes, they're all in the business of renting out cars to the public, but they also share something else. Hint: their commonality has something to do with electricity. The companies have all signed deals to offer battery-powered vehicles to their customers in the very near near future. Hertz and Enterprise will offer the Nissan Leaf and Avis signed a two-car deal with Renault.
Now, Coda Automotive is getting in on the rental action as well. Enterprise has agreed to introduce up to 100 Coda Sedans at various rental locations by the end of 2011. There's no word on rental rates, and Enterprise has not revealed locations that will receive the Coda Sedan, but we'd have to assume that at least a few would share some lot space with the Nissan Leaf and that would certainly make it easy for buyers to cross shop both vehicles, don't you think?
