Hertz made global headlines yesterday when it announced a plan to convert its fleet to electric vehicles, starting with an initial purchase of 100,000 Tesla Model 3s.
The car rental company said it expects to receive the first cars as early as next month. As we found out yesterday, you can already reserve one for your next trip in the United States, with the daily rates being extremely competitive.
If you want an even better deal, you might want to book one and travel before January 31, 2022.
On a support page intended to educate future renters on charging an electric vehicle (EV), Hertz says it will cover the cost of Supercharging if you pick up your car between November 1, 2021 and January 31, 2022.
To make renters aware of the deal, they have also added it as part of the reservation process.
If you aren’t able to take advantage of the offer, you will be billed the same amount for your Supercharging sessions just as you would as an owner.
That’s according to the terms and conditions when renting a Model 3 from Hertz that we uncovered yesterday.
CHARGING DURING RENTAL – Tesla EV’s are able to access Tesla Superchargers to recharge the EV. If You use a Tesla Supercharger to recharge the EV during your rental, that cost will be billed back to Hertz and added to your rental charges.
