Re: [EVDL] EVnews: Hertz&Enterprise Coda EVs, Spainish Think, Tata EVX, CARe 500, au

Since I am not just interested in what Hertz is offering,
but want to show my interest as customer in EVs
I sent them an inquiry for future rental, asking when and where
they will have the Coda available and at what rate.
