Our mushrooming eco fleet

Each year we are focused on reducing the average level of CO2 emissions that our cars produce. In the UK, the Lexus NX 300h, powered by a Full Hybrid drivetrain, is one of the stars of Avis Select Series.

In the Netherlands, a number of our rental stations stock the aerodynamic Peugeot 508 Saloon with its HYbrid4 engine, as well as the Toyota Yaris Hybrid, one of the cleanest small cars out today.

The spacious Toyota Auris, with its new engine offering low CO2 emissions, is available at some of our French rental stations, while France's Avis Prestige fleet includes three hybrid SUVs and sedans at the very top end of the market. Experience the petrol-electric Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid, luxurious Mercedes S500 Plug-in Hybrid or super-swift BMW ActiveHybrid 5.

Ten percent of Norway's car hire fleet are "green cars"; purr away in a Tesla Model S, Nissan Leaf, BMW i3 or Audi A3 Sportback e-tron Plug-In Hybrid.

Driving in the U.S.? The Toyota Prius Hybrid leads our eco-friendly fleet in North America; other popular models include the Ford Fusion Hybrid, Ford C-MAX Hybrid and Hyundai Sonata Hybrid.
