University of Phoenix Students
COMM/210 Team x
Presentation is to the Board of Directors, and the CEO, of Lotus Rental Cars. The presentation will be on the feasibility of adding alternative fuel to the rental fleet. During the presentation, pros and cons will be discussed and presented, along with tax incentives that the US Government has provided to companies willing to use alterative fuels.

The conversion would reduce the level of carbon emissions because our vehicles would not operate on petroleum products. Lotus Rental Car's services would appeal to a larger customer base and elevate profits.
