As the world largest car rental company, Hertz is upgrading once again.  They are adding new cars to the green collection.  Their newest addition is the 2012 Volkswagen Jetta TDI.  The vehicles has a 42 mpg EPA highway marks and a 600 mile per take cruising range.  This is good news for renters and anyone who wants to stay away from the pump when traveling for business or leisure.  

This change is Hertz's attempt to satisfy the environmentally conscious customers. the collection includes other brands such as the Nissan LEAF, Chevrolet Volt) along with conventional hybrids (Toyota Prius, Camry Hybrid, Nissan Altima Hybrid) and CNG-powered models (Honda Civic Natural Gas, GMC Yukon).

The goal is also to give drivers a choice when renting a car and allowing them to feel good about protecting the environment in yet another way. These latest entries to the firm's high-mileage Green Traveler fleet will be available at select Hertz airport facilities across the country.  As always, a customer has the right to make a request upon reserving the car.
