As the transition to electric vehicles accelerates, more and more corporations are embracing the change.

Hertz, the car and truck rental company is reinventing itself after filing for bankruptcy and laying off 20,000 employees in May 2020 in part because of the pandemic. With a new CEO and new financial backing, Hertz made the largest single purchase of EV’s to date … committing to purchase 100,000 Tesla’s to be delivered by the end of 2022. The purchase caused Tesla’s stock to soar to over $1 Trillion.

The cars in the Hertz fleet will have access to Tesla’s Supercharger network in addition to all the other EV charging stations available to drivers.

Renting an EV has been a goal of many EV drivers over the past decade however not many options were available. This is a great way for people to truly understand how easy it is to drive and charge an electric vehicle for a few days without making the commitment to purchase one first.
