Leaving LAX, ARN drove to West LA, where we met with Steve Vahidi, president of California Rent A Car. Located on a busy street in the middle of the city, Vahidi talked about the challenges of expanding its operation, primarily the inability to find reasonably priced land. Vahidi also brought up electric vehicles — the focus of MPG Car Rentals where he serves as president — specifically the frustration surrounding the lack of transparency with available rebates.
