    4 quid an hour in London?

    So about 5 quid per mile then?

    Obvious choice if you're only driving round London given the congestion charge

    However they'd have done better if they offered a swap service so that (if you're going on a long drive) you could swap to a regular car and not worry about running out of petrol.

    It's a start.

    But *only* just.

    Think this beats it...*

    'Course, if you don't mind driving in a car that advertises "I've got a Big Whopper (jr) with frenchies on the side".

    Still, no publicity is - well, no publicity.

    *Yep, I'm offering to revamp that website. Children should be allowed to drink beer, fight for their country, but never allowed to use Javascript, much less American English (as if there were such an animal)

    Congestion charge not much of an issue

    Both Hertz Connect and Streetcar (which I use, and has many more cars in London than Hertz) pay the congestion charge for you, on all your bookings anyway. So, choosing one of these electric ones won't make any difference at all.

    Refuelling charges?

    If you're supposed to "return it with a full tank" do you have to pay for the time spent at the charging post?
