Car Sharing Electrified

For those people that aren't ready to be guinea pigs or buy an electric car quite yet, Hertz, the world's largest general-use airport car-rental brand, will launch an electric vehicle rental option or "EV" share option in major cities across the nation later this year.

Hertz's car sharing arm, Connect by Hertz, has 20,000 members.

Jack Hidary, the man behind the Cash for Clunkers program and the Greening of the New York City taxi fleet, has been charged with leading the efforts toward launching the network of charging stations and electric cars by Hertz.

"It's the first time ever we are offering consumers the ability to rent or car share electric vehicles," Hidary said. "Anything from the Nissan Leaf to the Prius plug-in to a Chevy Volt to a Mitsubishi iMiEV -- so lots of choices. And they can both rent it or do something like car share, where they just use it for a few hours."
