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."
