Hertz Green Collection - known as Green Traveler Collection in the US - has been launched in Mexico with a fleet of 2016 Toyota Prius hybrid vehicles. Hertz Mexico is the first car rental provider to add hybrid vehicles to its offering in the country in support of sustainable mobility. The all-new Toyota Prius is currently available for rent at all Hertz locations in Mexico City.
These cars are exempt from the city's driving limitations in force for improving the quality of the air. The Prius incorporates fuel-saving technology that seamlessly and automatically alternates between electric power and conventional engine power for greater efficiency and performance. The Prius does not use fuel on slopes, in traffic jams or slow movement, resulting in fuel-saving costs and reduced CO2 emissions.
"Leading the car rental industry in offering a fleet of hybrid car rental vehicles in Mexico supports our commitment to the environment," said Moises Behar, chief executive officer of Hertz Mexico. "After seeing the popularity of the Hertz Green Collection in other countries, we are convinced that this eco-friendly choice will be equally well received in Mexico City."
