The Hertz rental car group has added the BYD E6 to its fleet.

This is the first time that the global car rental company has added a new energy vehicle (NEV) to its fleet of cars in China, China Car Times noted. The E6 will initially be available in the Shenzhen area, close to BYD’s HQ, but is expected to role out across China later.

Hertz has focused its rental NEV policy on Shenzhen owing to its favorable policies to NEVs which see substantial subsidies being awarded to buyers. The E6 hasn’t officially entered the fleet as the cars are still in production at BYD, however. The cars will come fully charged from Hertz and consumers are not expected to ‘fill up the tank’ before returning them to the rental location. When fully charged and operating under city driving conditions the E6 is expected to reach a maximum distance of 200km (120 miles) before running out of charge.
