When you live in the city, it’s usually pretty easy to get around without a car. Sure you may have to deal with public transportation delays, a bike commute in the rain, or a hot and humid walk to work, but hey, it beats forking over money for a car payment, right?

But what about on those rare occasions when you’d like to take a drive out into the country to get away or visit friends or family in a neighboring state? Chances are, you’ll probably have to rent a car. Most companies offer smaller, more affordable options as well as larger vehicles and SUV’s. However, at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Northampton, Massachusetts, customers now have a third option.

Make Like a Tree and Leaf

For those folks looking to drive a short distance and save on gas and/or help the environment, Enterprise Rent-A-Car is rolling out the electric Nissan Leaf for rent in Northampton. On a full charge, the vehicle can drive a distance of nearly 80 miles and is comparably priced with most other vehicles in its class at Enterprise.

Depending on the type of charger, the car can be re-charged for about $2.00 in as little as 30 minutes. As an added bonus to customers, the Nissan Leaf can be returned on empty without an added fee. Although the car might be a better and more cost effective option if you’re staying local, experts say you may be better off sticking to a gas-powered vehicle for longer trips or if you have concerns about finding a charging station while traveling.
