Hertz will rent Nissan Leafs in the United States and Europe from 2011.

Mark P. Frissora, Hertz chairman, said, “The partnership with Nissan seals Hertz’s commitment to green-car rentals and firmly demonstrates our mission to advancing zero-emission mobility.”

The Leaf will go on sale in Japan, the US and Europe in late 2010, capable of seating five adults and covering around 100 miles between charges.

“Our partnership with Hertz is an important step towards our goal of promising widespread acceptance of electric vehicles” said Toshiyuki Shiga, chief operating officer at Nissan.

“We aim to be the leader in zero-emission vehicles, which we believe are one of the best solutions for the growing need for transport across the globe.”

Mass-marketing of electric vehicles by the Renault-Nissan Alliance will begin in 2012. Agreements have been made with more than 40 governments, cities and other organisations in Japan, the US and Europe for the development of charging infrastructure and financial incentives.
