Hertz is announcing the introduction of rental CNG cars beginning early next month, at the Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City. The fleet of cars will include eight CNG Honda Civics and two CNG GMC Yukons fitted with NeverLost GPS units to help car drivers map their way around local CNG refueling stations.
Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer said that Hertz will continue with its dedication towards providing a range of CNG, electric and fuel efficient vehicles from the Green Traveler Collection, to suit rental needs of their customers. The fleet will be expanded in the coming time as more clean emission vehicles will be offered to sustain low emission travel options.
The fleet of cars will be on display on Wednesday, April 11 in concurrence with the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Green Week, an NBA initiatory for environmental awareness. Furthermore, Hertz will also be offering 10 weekend CNG vehicle rentals to game attendees.
Along with Hertz’s Oklahoma City CNG airport rentals program, the company is also serving CNG airport buses to the Los Angeles Airport, CNG vehicles through Hertz On Demand at Oklahoma State University and CNG vehicles to Italy and United Kingdom as a part of its sustainability driven programme.
As Aubrey K. McClendon, Chesapeake Chief Executive Officer says it, Hertz’s natural gas vehicles rental program paves a new path for natural gas as a transportation fuel. Hiring a Hertz car will not only cut the customer’s fueling costs but also help him contribute towards a better environment.
