Avis orders Smart cars

Revealed at last year's Frankfurt Motor Show the Smart car is powered by a 600cc three-cylinder engine, although two further versions are expected to be added to the line-up including a turbo charged diesel model. In adding the car to its European fleet, Avis is launching a scheme called 'Smartmove & more', which will allow both corporate and private customers to be more flexible in renting and owning vehicles.
Claimed to be the first pan-European motoring package of its kind Smart car owners will be able to tailor their choice of hire vehicle from Avis' fleet according to their particular needs. So customers who buy a Smart car will be able to hire a larger vehicle for family holidays for example. Avis will allow customers to test drive the car from the Avis fleet and will stage forecourt displays.
