BYD's e6 EV to join Hertz rental fleet in China
Automotive News China | 2011/8/30

Hertz Corp., a U.S.-based car rental company, says it plans to include BYD Co.'s e6 electric vehicle in its fleet in China. Hertz claims it is the first company to offer EVs for rent in the world's largest auto market.

Under the deal signed with BYD on Friday, Hertz initially will add the e6 to its rental fleet in Shanghai and Shenzhen, with multinational corporations and government agencies as target clients.

The e6, a five-seat crossover, is powered by a BYD lithium ion battery pack and has a range of 240 km on a charge in urban conditions, according to Hertz.

Hertz entered China in 2002. The company says it offers EVs for rent in New York, Washington, San Francisco and Los Angeles, as well as in some European cities such as London.
