Hertz Introduces Zero Emissions Program

Hertz, world leader in the public car rental business, has developed a new “0 emissions” program, releasing UK’s lowest cost electric club car in the London Borough of Camden.

Connect by Hertz, the company’s global car sharing club now offers a Citroen C1 evie, powered exclusively by electric energy. The vehicle is produced by the British Electric Car Corporation and will be available at Lincolns Inn Fields for 3 pounds per hour. It can be charged free of cost at charging stations in Camden for up to three hours.

The Citroen C1 evie offers a range of 60 miles for each charge and is exempted from London’s Congestion charge. Users will enjoy a keyless entry system, a feature implemented through a chip inserted in the vehicle’s connect card. The car also offers drivers the possibility to connect their own music players. Another feature is the in-car communications system, which links users to the Member Care Center in case assistance is needed.

The program is supported by London Mayor Boris Johnson and the Cambden council. The service includes insurance, maintenance, cleaning and roadside assistance. Cambden residents will receive a voucher worth 50 pounds if they wish to enter.

"The planning and development of transport in Camden is extremely important, with road traffic currently the biggest source of air pollution in London. An electric vehicle car club is an extremely valuable option for the eco-conscious driver, and for cutting emissions and the number of cars on our streets," said Councillor Chris Knight, Executive Member for Environment, Camden Council

Camden Council plans to expand the project in the Borough as well as add new locations for the program.
