Many recent high school graduates are headed off to college. For these students, the transition to college can be a difficult one. One of the most difficult things about college is finding somewhere to park on campus. Nissan is determined to help out with that.
According to a press release from Nissan, the automaker has teamed up with Enterprise CarShare to supply universities around the country with Nissan vehicles.
“The Enterprise CarShare program offers a convenient way for college students, faculty and staff to enjoy an extended test drive of a wide range of Nissan vehicles and to experience ‘Innovation that excites’ firsthand,” said Fred Diaz, senior vice president of Sales & Marketing and Operations for Nissan North America, Inc., in the press release. He goes on to say that, “for those about to graduate and recent graduates, we’ll be there to support the transition into the working world with our College Grad program when they are ready to purchase a new Nissan car, SUV or truck.”
The deal with Enterprise will supply over 90 campuses nationwide with Nissan vehicles that can be used for car sharing. What makes the deal even better is that through December 31, students can rent these vehicles for just $5 an hour.
Over the last few years, the number of Enterprise CarShare vehicles on college campuses has dramatically increased by 20%. With Nissan’s help, it looks like this number will continue to grow! Tell us at 171 Nissan what you think about Nissan’s latest endeavor!
