As popularity grows all over the globe for eco-friendly transportation, Nissan’s Leaf is at the forefront of the electric car market. Powered by 48 lithium-ion battery cells located under the front and rear seats, the Leaf is propelled along by a synchronous electric motor, producing 107bhp.

Enterprise rent-a-car has been looking into electric vehicles, and have announced that it will be offering the Leaf as a part of their rental package for the US outlets. Enterprise has plans to introduce 500 cars by January 2011, and will be adding the all important charging stations to 100 various locations within 30 cities across the States.

With director of sustainability for Enterprise, Mr Lee Broughton said that enquiries for electric rentals have already started coming in.
