Mitsubishi Motors UK has signed an agreement with Hertz to add its i-Miev electric vehicle to its car sharing club Connect.
The rollout starts today, with two Mitsubishi i-MiEVs now available for Connect by Hertz members to use around London.
PricewaterhouseCoopers has already signed up to pilot the use of the i-Mievs to allow its staff to get around the capital instead of using taxis.
Hertz plans to add further i-MiEVs to its fleet throughout the year across the UK.
Customers will be able to charge their vehicles at Hertz charging stations located across the capital as well as at Heathrow and London City Airport.
In addition, customers will have access to the Source London public charging points which are being rolled out across London by 2013, as part of the Mayor’s plans for London to become the electric vehicle capital of Europe.
