LONDON, April 15, 2011 - The Hertz Corporation (NYSE:HTZ) has signed an agreement with Mitsubishi
Motors in the UK to add the pure-electric vehicle (EV) i-MiEV city car to the
fleets of Hertz and car sharing club Connect by Hertz in the UK. The rollout
starts today, with two Mitsubishi i-MiEVs now available for Connect by Hertz
members to zip around London. Hertz plans to add further i-MiEVs to its
fleets throughout the year across the UK, as well as offering vehicles for
corporate and university pool fleets.

Customers will be able to charge their vehicles at Hertz charging
stations located across the capital as well as at Heathrow and London City
Airport. In addition, customers will have access to the Source London public
charging points which are being rolled out across the city by 2013, as part
of the Mayor's plans for London to become the electric vehicle capital of

Michel Taride, President, Hertz International, commented: "Our
partnership with Mitsubishi Motors in the UK to provide i-MiEV cars to our
Connect by Hertz members and Hertz customers in the UK is a vital part of our
global Electric Vehicle and sustainability initiatives. We are excited that
from today, our customers can experience the joy of 100% electric driving
with the i-MiEV's, which offer surprising power and a smooth, quiet ride."

Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, Lance Bradley added:
"We are delighted to partner with Hertz and to be able to offer the i-MiEV to
their customers. The i-MiEV is a very important vehicle for us, making a
statement to the global car industry - being the first mass-produced, zero
emission full electric vehicle ever. It has a vastly reduced effect on our
environment, yet demands absolutely no compromise in terms of safety,
comfort, convenience or fun. It is a vehicle for the future, available right
now - built for the modern city commuter, in a stylish, super-modern,
high-tech and exciting package."

Engineered to be the perfect car for the urban environment, the
Mitsubishi i-MiEV can park in tight spaces and breeze through traffic while
comfortably accommodating four adults. It has a range of over 90 miles and
can be charged up to 80% via a quick charging unit in as little as 30 minutes
or fully charged overnight via a standard 3 pin domestic plug socket. In the
UK, the Mitsubishi i-MiEV was the first mass-produced fully electric vehicle
to market and has been involved in official government trials since
mid-December 2009. The Mitsubishi i-MiEV is also the world's first ever
pure-EV to have received the Euro NCAP 4-star Rating.

Hertz's electric vehicle initiative with Mitsubishi Motors in the UK
further demonstrates the rental provider's commitment to providing customers
with a variety of zero-emission mobility solutions. The partnership forms
part of the European development of Hertz's Global Electric Vehicle Program,
launched in December 2010, with the Mitsubishi pure-EV i-MiEV complementing
both Hertz's existing Green Collection and the Connect by Hertz car sharing

During the next several months, Hertz Global EV will leverage the
company's rental and car sharing locations as bases for vehicles and charging
stations, and tap into its technology - including sophisticated fleet
management tools and the consumer-facing NeverLost GPS system - to help form
an EV grid.

As the world's largest general-use car-rental brand, Hertz is uniquely
positioned to introduce multiple groups of consumers - urban drivers,
university students, travelers and corporations - to all-electric and plug-in
hybrid vehicles. As part of this strategy, Hertz is forming partnerships with
manufacturers, charging station providers, municipalities, NGO's,
corporations and other stakeholders.

All the cars in Hertz's Green Collection in Europe can be reserved by
make and model, and offer a CO2 output level of less than 140g/km, making
them more environmentally friendly than most other cars. The conventional
cars in the Collection also achieve 45-65mpg, depending upon vehicle size, so
they are more fuel-efficient too. Together, that means customers can enjoy
their journey even more, safe in the knowledge that they are saving along the

Notes to editors

Hertz has launched 16 charging stations with two plug points each at
London City Airport, Heathrow Airport, Russell Square (London), Marble Arch
(London), Old Kent Rd (London), and Uxbridge.
