Enterprise Designates ‘Green Branch' in Sacramento

In response to customer demand for environmentally friendly vehicles, Enterprise Rent-A-Car has designated its first California “Green Branch” in Sacramento, near the State Capitol, the company reports.

The “Green Branch” designation means rental customers will be able to choose from a fleet of cars that include hybrids as well as high-mileage, fuel-efficient cars demonstrating Enterprise’s environmental platform and the company’s ongoing commitment to supporting the use of alternative technologies and fuel-efficient vehicles.

A majority (70 percent) of the downtown Sacramento “Green Branch” fleet will be comprised of fuel efficient cars including hybrid gas/electric vehicles and fuel-efficient vehicles that average a highway fuel efficiency rating of at least 28 mpg or better.

During the past year, Enterprise has officially designated a total of eight “E85/FlexFuel” branches. Nationally, Enterprise is actively deploying as many of its FlexFuel vehicles as possible near E85 fueling stations in order to build consumer awareness and increase the number of cars being fueled with E85, a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline.

The Taylor family of companies, which includes Enterprise, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car, owns and operates the world’s largest vehicle fleet, which includes 4,000 hybrids, 73,000 FlexFuel vehicles, and 440,000 fuel-efficient vehicles.
