LOS ANGELES, Aug. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MPG Rent-a-Car is committed to changing the way that customers rent cars by taking a boutique-oriented, green approach to automotive rentals. It has also made a serious commitment to environmental issues as the only fully sustainability centered rental car company in Los Angeles. The agency has therefore taken to heart the recent Best Global Green Brands rankings made available by Interbrand, the world's largest brand consultancy. Based in the progressive, green-friendly haven of Venice, California, MPG Car Rental, an all-green car rental company, proudly offers the eco-friendly brands named in the report.

The Interbrand list ranks companies on a scale that merges a car brand's image with the brand's actual level of sustainability. Jez Frampton, Interbrand's Global CEO, mentions that "it's not just what they do, it's how they're perceived to be doing as well." Some of the best known and most popular imported car manufacturers – all with several autos featured at MPG Car Rental -- were graded very high on the list; Toyota was firmly at #1, with Honda and Volkswagen following closely behind at #3 and #4, respectively.

Toyota, also the parent company of Lexus, was lauded for its development of the Prius and for having near zero landfill status. David Pearson, Global Sustainability Leader of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, discussed in an interview with Mr. Frampton why successful businesses are being strengthened by a new focus on sustainability.  He noted that consumers are becoming increasingly passionate about eco-consumerism. MPG Car Rental is passionate as well. By filling a niche for environmentally-minded renters, the MPG team can build relationships with their coastal Los Angeles clientele, which leads to happier experiences all around. Sustainability-minded car renters are bound to be energized about having an all-green rental fleet.

Innovation was also cited by Mr. Pearson. To attain a smaller ecological footprint, inventors and developers have to think of new ways of operating and manufacturing alongside the use of cleaner fuels. MPG Car Rental explores these types of vehicles by constantly updating its fleet. The company offers cars with a broad spectrum of capabilities suitable for any renter's needs; large or small, for city or long trips, the vehicles in the Venice-based fleet have you covered.

If you're looking for a hybrid car rental from one of these dedicated companies in the Los Angeles area, then turn to MPG Car Rental. The MPG fleet includes vehicles mentioned in Interbrand's list, from Toyota (Prius, Prius Plug-In, Highlander Hybrid) and Lexus (RX, CT), to Honda (Insight), Volkswagen (Jetta), and many more. All of these brands ranked on the Best Global Green Brand list. A recently-added electric car rental, the Chevy Volt, should be making waves with green-minded renters as well. Also, the rates at MPG Car Rental are far below the national chains. The company will even pick you up and drop you off where you need to go after, a crucial convenience.
