Drive Electric Orlando and Enterprise Expand One of America’s
Largest Electric Car Rental Programs, Introduce 14 Chevy Volts

America’s most visited city—hosting 60 million travelers a year—will put thousands behind the wheel of an EV for extended test drives, promoting adoption nationwide.

ORLANDO—Standing in front of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and flanked by a new fleet of electric vehicles (EVs), Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer joined Drive Electric Orlando (DEO), Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Chevrolet, OUC and 14 of the city’s top community and business leaders to announce the expansion of Orlando’s EV car rental fleet. Mayor Dyer issued a proclamation at the event reinforcing Orlando’s status as America’s best place to rent an EV, supported by the addition of 14 new Chevrolet Volt plug-in cars to Enterprise’s local rental offering.
