Enterprise to Buy 500 Electric Cars From Nissan
Enterprise Holdings, which owns the brands Enterprise, Alamo and National, will include the Leaf vehicle in its rental fleets in eight cities: Seattle, Portland, Ore, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Tucson, Ariz, Nashville and Knoxville, Tenn. They will begin buying the cars in January, The Wall Street Journal reported.
"There's quite a bit of buzz about electric cars and customers already are asking us when we're going to get them," Lee Broughton, Enterprise's director of sustainability said.
Enterprise will also add vehicle-charging stations in 30 U.S. cities starting this fall. The company pledged to buy electric vehicles from other manufacturers when they become available.
