The large car rental company Hertz has added the all-electric Tesla Model S to a line of rental vehicles it calls “Dream Cars.”
The Dream Cars lineup consists of very nice luxury models from the marques of Aston Martin, Bentley, Audi, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover, SRT, and now Tesla Motors — both the Roadster and Model S! Imagine having all of these options at your fingertips! (If you can afford the rental.)
Hertz says the Tesla Model S offered is the 85 kWh model. However, there are two 85 kWh models. The 85 and the P85. The P85 is an 85 kWh model with the Performance package. Both models have 265 miles of range. The 85 can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds, while the P85 can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds, according to the Tesla Motors website.
The next time I travel, I will keep Hertz in mind.
“Customer and industry support for Hertz’s Dream Cars has been overwhelming, so adding the Tesla Model S to the already outstanding fleet was an easy choice,” said Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and CEO. “The ability to offer a truly unique driving experience to Hertz customers is a thrill, and the addition of this vehicle shows the passion we have in offering the best and most diverse fleet to our customers.”
According to the press release, the Tesla Model S will be available in California, at San Francisco and Los Angeles airports.
