The world's largest rental car company is adding electric cars to its fleet.

Hertz says it will begin renting the Nissan Leaf, which is an all-electric car with a rechargeable battery. Nissan says the Leaf can drive up to 100 miles on a single charge.

Hertz plans to make Leaf available next year.

Nissan will begin selling the leaf in the U.S. later this year.
