Hertz On Demand, The Hertz Corp.'s hourly car rental program, has added a Chevrolet Volt electric vehicle (EV) to the On Demand fleet at the University of Connecticut. The program launched at UConn in October 2011 with four vehicles and now has over 800 members.
In partnership with the Town of Mansfield, Conn., the Volt is available in the new Storrs Center parking garage on campus. This garage also offers four EV charging stations for the Hertz on Demand vehicle and for the general public.
‘The town is committed to providing the infrastructure for alternative and energy-saving transportation modes,’ says Lon Hultgren, Mansfield's director of public works. ‘We are developing choices for residents and commuters to move themselves and others in and about Mansfield. I think that all these facilities should be of great value to the community.’
Hertz On Demand is a pay-as-you-go service with no annual fees, with hourly rates starting as low as $6.50/hour.
