Enterprise installs electric vehicle charging stations in California
With more than 5,500 car rental locations within 15 miles of 90 percent of the U.S. population, Enterprise is positioned to introduce drivers to electric vehicle technology
Portland, Ore., June 11, 2012 — Enterprise Rent-A-Car, a visionary leader in the electric vehicle rental market, is installing OpConnect Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in their Santa Monica and Torrance, California offices.
With more than 5,500 car rental locations within 15 miles of 90 percent of the U.S. population, Enterprise is positioned to introduce drivers to electric vehicle technology.
With this development, the OpConnect charging stations will be used to recharge Enterprise's growing fleet of electric vehicles. Both locations have many electric vehicles so OpConnect's unique quad port design allows Enterprise to use one station to recharge four vehicles at the same time, unlike competing charging stations limited to charging vehicles two at a time. This rapid recharge ability will help Enterprise to keep its fleet of vehicles on the road.
Southern California is a growing electric vehicle market for Enterprise and for the OpConnect system. Customers now can rent EV from Enterprise Rent-A-Car in 12 locations, operating the largest network of EV rentals in the state.
