Quebec car rental company offers hybrids
Montreal, Quebec – Tino Carrara, President of Discount Car and Truck Rentals in Québec announced that Discount’s Plateau Mont-Royal and Downtown rental locations in Montréal have Toyota Prius hybrid cars available to their customers.
Discount is the first car rental company in Québec to rent gas/electric synergy-drive cars.
Mr. Carrara noted: “We wanted to innovate, make a small contribution to ecology, and take a first modest step in addressing an increasing client need, especially among weekend renters. We remain sensitive to the many suggestions we receive from our rental locations and hope this initiative will generate enough interest for us to expand our offer throughout the Discount Québec network for the benefit of both our clients an ecology.”
Mr. Carrara committed a $1,000 donation to the Québec office of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to help finance its Aux arbres citoyens campaign which aims to protect Québec’s boreal forest.
