Rental car company Hertz has announced a new initiative to help make electric vehicles more accessible and be a frontrunner with helping to shift personal transportation cars to emissions-free alternatives. The brand has announced an order it placed for 100,000 Tesla electric vehicles that it will add to their new fleet, which will be arriving before the end of 2022. This will reportedly be the largest fleet of electric vehicles in the US.
Hertz Interim CEO Mark Fields spoke on the company's latest electric vehicle order saying, "Electric vehicles are now mainstream, and we’ve only just begun to see rising global demand and interest. The new Hertz is going to lead the way as a mobility company, starting with the largest EV rental fleet in North America and a commitment to grow our EV fleet and provide the best rental and recharging experience for leisure and business customers around the world.”
