Nissan LEAF available at Santa Monica Enterprise Rent-A-Car location

Enterprise Rent-A-Car now offers customers the Nissan LEAF electric vehicle (EV) for daily and weekly rental at its 1702 Santa Monica Blvd. rental location in Santa Monica, California. Enterprise also has installed a charging station at the same location through Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) manufacturer ClipperCreek.

We’re making the Nissan LEAF available to local customers who are simply curious about the EV driving experience, those who are considering buying an EV, and those who want a fuel-efficient car rental option. It’s part of our ongoing commitment to be a leader in the electrification of the car rental and transportation industries.

—Greg Tabak, director of business sales in Southern California for Enterprise Holdings

Enterprise recently announced plans to add 500 Nissan LEAF EVs at select locations throughout its neighborhood network and through its WeCar car-sharing program throughout this year. In addition, Enterprise earlier this year became the first to offer rentals of Chevrolet Volt extended-range EVs to customers at its Ontario, Calif., rental location.

With more than 5,500 offices located within 15 miles of 90% of the US population, Enterprise Rent-A-Car offers a wide variety of car leasing, vanpooling, car sharing and hourly rental programs.



This company has made its business on car repair rentals. If the Leaf has a 110 volt plug in with just an extension cord that is supplied it might work, otherwise...good luck.


Hopefully these EVs will perform well enough to win enthusiasts. Enterprise does a favor to the EV movement by inserting up to 500 Leafs into the rental market. Great way for customers to get comfortable driving an EV and eventually purchase one on their own.
