The Hertz Corp. is now offering the all-electric 2014 Chevrolet Spark at its San Francisco and Los Angeles airport locations, as well as Hertz local facilities throughout California.

According to the 2014 Fuel Economy Guide released by the EPA and Energy Department, the 2014 Chevrolet Spark electric vehicle achieves miles per gallon equivalent to 119 combined, 128 city and 109 highway.

"Hertz is constantly looking for opportunities to improve and grow our sustainability efforts, and we're excited to offer this year's most fuel-efficient vehicle for rent," said Mark P. Frissora, Hertz chairman and CEO. "In addition to Hertz's EV program and Green Traveler Collection, environmental sustainability is integrated throughout the company, from our car wash process to the way we build our rental locations. Having a selection of leading electric vehicles in our fleet gives customers a valued selection of smart mobility options when renting."

The Chevrolet Spark is just one of Hertz's Smart Mobility rental choices, which includes electric vehicles, hybrids and car sharing, says the company.

Hertz’s EV program provides customers global access to EVs in more than 10 cities and three continents, offering a diverse fleet of EVs from manufacturers like Nissan, GM and Tesla, says the company.
