Hertz Introduces BMW 320i to New Zealand Luxury Fleet

Extending its Prestige Collection of luxury vehicles to New Zealand, the Hertz Corp. has introduced the latest model BMW 3 Series sedan (320i) to its New Zealand fleet.

"We are pleased to now offer customers the chance to drive the BMW 3 Series sedan, most fuel efficient and best performing model in its competitive class,” said Michel Taride, group president of Hertz International. “The extension of the Prestige Collection into New Zealand builds on our huge success of this range of sophisticated, luxurious vehicles in the U.S. and Europe."

The BMW 320i features a fuel efficient engine, brake energy regeneration and stop/start technology. This sedan will initially be available at Auckland airport and Victoria Street in downtown Auckland.

Mark Righton, Hertz New Zealand country manager, said: "The introduction of BMWs to our New Zealand fleet highlights our dedication to providing customers with a broad rental offering and value for money – from our economy models right up to these prestigious motor vehicles. These BMWs are currently being introduced into Auckland, but we'll be monitoring customer feedback and demand to determine whether we'll extend these cars to other locations around the country in the future."

The Prestige Collection forms part of Hertz's global collections of specialty vehicles, according to Hertz.
