Hertz Orders 100K Teslas – PCMag UK


Interested in driving a Tesla, but don’t want to spend the money buying one? Next month there will be 100,000 of them to rent from Hertz.

The company is responding to both a huge increase in demand for electric vehicles and a need to cut emissions to limit climate change by investing heavily in Tesla. From November, the Tesla Model 3 will be available to rent “at Hertz airport and neighborhood locations in U.S. major markets and select cities in Europe.”

Electric vehicles need to be easy to recharge, so Hertz is also installing thousands of charges spread across its existing locations, as well as there being 3,000 Tesla Superchargers available for customers to use. And as EVs are still quite new and different, Hertz will be offering “a premium and differentiated rental experience,” which includes digitized guidance for a quick education on how they work.

Purchasing 100,000 Teslas means the EVs will make up over 20% of Hertz’s fleet, with the company planning to expand their availability to 65 markets by the end of 2022, and 100 markets the following year. And to help spread the word, Hertz is teaming up with Tom Brady for a new “Hertz, Let’s Go!” campaign, which will involve Brady “renting, recharging and using an EV at a Hertz airport location.”
