Avis Rent A Car is continuing its green expansion in Europe with the addition this month of
Tourans that run on
to its fleet in 15 German cities. And over in Portugal, Avis' uses 50
and has reduced CO2 emissions by 50 tons (I'm guessing this is compared to 2004 levels, since the hybrids were introduced in 2005, but I'm not certain). In Scandinavia, Avis is all about
(and hybrids), with "over 400 ethanol-powered
BioPower cars, 75
Flexi-fuel and 20
vehicles on its fleet." Avis UK offers
(using The CarbonNeutral Company) to online bookers.
I like Avis' earlier announcements about
the family car. With clean(er) car rentals and things like
, it's going to get easier and easier for people to have a car when necessary and not pay for it - and not pollute - when they don't. The decision is ours to make.
