You'll soon be able to Leaf an Enterprise Rent-a-Car lot driving Nissan's new battery car.

The first chance many potential customers will get to drive the new Nissan Leaf battery-electric vehicle could come at an Enterprise Rent-a-Car lot.

The company plans to begin offering 100 Leafs for rent, starting next January, shortly after the debut of the BEV, which is targeted to go to fleet markets first, then follow up with retail sales in late 2011.  Enterprise says it will start with eight markets, including Los Angeles, generally seen as the country’s most battery car-friendly city.

The rental firm hasn’t yet set a price for a daily rental of the Leaf, though a spokeswoman hinted it will likely be higher than a similar-sized gasoline-powered vehicle.  But that applies to the compact Nissan sedan itself.
