Just in time for the holiday travel season, Enterprise Rent-A-Car has added 100 hybrid vehicles to its Denver Airport fleet, which brings their total number of hybrids up to 2,000. That’s just the start though, they plan to get that number up to 7,000.
Enterprise is America’s largest car rental company, and claims to have the largest fleet of fuel efficient cars, with 440,000 achieving 28 mpg or better. Drivers can rent hybrid vehicles at 26 of their locations around the country for a cost of around $60 bucks, which is only $10 more than a similar non-hybrid car. The company also offers eight E85/FlexFuel Sites where 30 percent of the cars can run on the ethanol blend.
That’s not all Enterprise is doing to help the environment though: Enterprise plans on planting 1 million trees annually until it reaches it’s goal of 50 million. And, last year, Enterprise insiders spent $25 million dollars to create a plant science research facility.
So if you’ll be traveling this holiday season, think about booking a hybrid or some other eco-friendly vehicle with Enterprise.
