Enterprise Holdings, Inc. is an American holding company headquartered in Clayton, Missouri. It is the parent company of car rental companies Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental, Alamo Rent a Car, PhillyCarShare, and Enterprise CarShare. The holding company was formed in 2009 as a result of Enterprise Rent-A-Car's 2007 acquisition of Vanguard Automotive Group, the parent company of National Car Rental and Alamo Rent a Car. Enterprise ranks as the largest car rental company in the United States.[1] The company sells its used cars through Enterprise Car Sales.

History

Enterprise CarShare

In 2008, Enterprise piloted its first on-campus carsharing program at Washington University in St. Louis.[2] The program, called WeCar, was introduced at University of South Florida in July 2009.[2] As of September 2012, WeCar has 100 carsharing programs in more than 30 American states and Canada, and the service offers almost 100 electric cars and plug-in hybrids, including the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt.[3]

By September 2013, WeCar was re-branded as Enterprise CarShare.[4]

Mergers and acquisitions

A planned acquisition of Citer SA was announced in November 2011; this includes the acquisition of subsidiary Atesa.[5] This acquisition would add 30,000 vehicles to the company's fleet and provide entry into the French and Spanish markets.[5]

Enterprise acquired Zimride ride-matching business on July 10, 2013. Terms of the sale were not released.[6]
