Electric Car Hire In France
Hire an Electric car
Enterprise Rent-A-Car began introducing electric cars to its fleet in 2011. To support a new generation of eco-conscious drivers, it also unveiled charging stations. The transition to clean air choices has also led to a range of full-sized hybrid cars. Electric car hire in France is becoming increasingly important as the nation considers a countrywide ban on petrol and diesel and puts stiff limitations on drivers. The hybrid fleet offers models with driver assistance technology, automatic parking and pre-collision alert tools. Intermediate electric cars can often manage impressive distances on a single charge. The technology doesn’t end in the engine, though. Remote connections, a 360-degree parking camera and a fun infotainment centre will ensure you enjoy driving as much as you do touring the sights. The charging status will keep you informed as you drive, and some models will even appear on a map if you’ve forgotten where your parking spot is. Some vehicles calculate your route. If you’re a music aficionado, premium models have Bose speaker surround sound or similar, so your trip will come with plenty of ambience and fun. Expect a smooth ride that operates without gear changes.
Electric vehicles have low running costs and improved safety technology. This class is among the most practical on the road, and it comes with extra torque to boot. Simply plug it in overnight, and by morning, you’ll be ready to take to the tarmac. Your trip should leave you with enough time to enjoy your trip, and electrified vehicles contribute to this. Gas stations will be firmly relegated to history, and fuel supply disruptions and price hikes won’t affect you. Compact cars are easy to manoeuvre and tend to require less maintenance, but they usually aren’t as smooth and quick as more powerful engines. Electric models overcome both these problems, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds – they tend to have excellent torque and smooth suspension.
