With this addition, consumers in select markets are now able to rent both the Tesla Model S and Tesla Roadster along with a variety of other luxury vehicles — from Ferrari to Lamborghini to Porsche and Mercedes-Benz — offered in Hertz's Dream Cars, a line of high-end performance vehicles.

"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."

The Tesla Model S will be available in California — at San Francisco and Los Angeles airports — and are the 85kWh model, capable of 265 miles on one charge. The all electric, zero emissions car can go 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds. The Tesla Model S was named Motor Trend's 2013 Car of the Year and received NHTSA's 5-star safety rating.
