Hertz has over 100 Tesla Model 3 rental cars at San Francisco International Airport

Hertz announced plans last year to purchase as many as 150,000 Tesla Model 3s for it global rental fleet and Uber drivers.

Some critics questioned the authenticity of the deal, most notably Tesla bear Gordon Johnson, who asked last month if the deal “was simply a [stock] pump”.

Johnson believed that since he was unable to find a Model 3 at New York’s La Guardia airport, that must mean there were no Model 3s available anywhere.

About one month later and the closest airport to Tesla’s Fremont factory, San Francisco International Airport (SFO), now has over 100 Model 3s for rent.

That number is according to a Hertz employee at SFO, who spoke to one of our readers after arriving at the airport this weekend. The employee also shared that the Model 3s are already proving very popular and have been renting easily.

Hertz has previously told Drive Tesla that they plan to offer Model 3s for rent in Canada by the end of the first quarter.

The launch will see Model 3s primarily available in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal, before expanding to other markets later in the year.
