Hertz offers Londoners e-cars for hire

iMiEV now, Nissan Leaf soon

The essential guide to IT transformation

Hertz is to give the chance to hoon around London Town in an e-car for just four quid an hour.

The catch: you have to join the rental company's Connect by Hertz pay-as-you-go club. Membership cost £50 a year even if you never drive one of the firm's cars.

Eye-MiEV

Sign up, though, and you can now hire a Mitsubishi iMiEV alongside the existing choice of the Fiat 500, Alfa Romeo MiTo and Ford Focus.

Hertz said it will soon have a number of Nissan Leafs in London too. You can read what we think about the Nissan in our First Look.

We've reviewed the iMiEV too.

Still, if you fancy trying out the latter through Hertz, be warned: it currently only has two of them in its London fleet. ®
