"As Hertz On Demand continues to expand globally, we are also expanding our
rental car options," said Mark P. Frissora, Chairman and Chief Executive

environmentally savvy and we want to provide them with the options to
experience everything that's 'new' through Hertz On Demand from the way they
book their car to the vehicle they choose to drive."

The Chevrolet Volt at the University of Connecticut will be available in the
new Storrs Center parking garage in partnership with the Town of Mansfield,
Connecticut. In addition, the Storrs Center garage offers four EV charging
stations for the Hertz on Demand vehicle and for the general public.

committed to providing the infrastructure for alternative and energy saving
transportation modes," said Lon Hultgren, Mansfield Director of Public Works.
"We are developing choices for residents and commuters to move themselves and
others in and about Mansfield. I think that all these facilities should be of
great value to the community."

four vehicles. Today, the University has over 800 members enrolled in the
program, and will have six vehicles with the addition of the Chevrolet Volt.
