Avis Goes Green

Avis Rent A Car System, LLC announced this week that they are expanding their 'Cool Car' collection to offer rental customers a choice of hybrid vehicles which now can be reserved by make and model.

These environment-friendly vehicles will be available at West Coast and Washington, D.C. locations. The service will be offered soon in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, New York and Philadelphia

The new addition of 500 Nissan Altima Hybrid vehicles gives customers a choice when renting a gas/electric hybrid vehicle, with the option of selecting either the Toyota Prius, a compact hybrid vehicle, or the Nissan Altima, a full-size hybrid vehicle for those desiring more room. All of these vehicles can use E10, a blend of gasoline and 10% ethanol.

Avis also offers flex fuel vehicles (FFV) for rent for those seeking to minimize environmental impact through the use of E-85 ethanol fuel. E-85 ethanol, a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline, is a mostly renewable fuel that can be made from corn, and which reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
