    Consumers who want to try driving green cars should check out the per hour rental program of Hertz called Connect by Hertz. The car rental company foresees the curiosity of the driving public on plug-in vehicles and has included in their line-up the Chevrolet Volt, Nissan Leaf, Tesla Roadster, Mitsubishi i-Miev, Coda Sedan and the Smart ED.

    The plug-in vehicles can be rented starting December 15 in New York. The rental scheme of the green vehicles will soon be rolled out to San Francisco, Texas, Washington DC, and London by next year. Hertz is also studying the possibilities of extending the services to different colleges and universities in N. America and may be even in China by the last quarter of 2011.

    The process of renting a plug-in vehicle with Hertz is pretty simple but the number of green cars available is quite limited. Hertz is limiting the services to members only. Those who are interested can sign up via the website of Hertz. There is a variable fee collected for the membership. Upon payment, the members will be asked to submit some information. The rental agency will contact the member for availability of the vehicles.

    Slots are expected to fill up quickly since Hertz will only have 1,000 vehicles by the end of 2011 with only 20 cars joining the program by midyear. Book asap if you want to try these green cars.
