Hertz Rental Car is looking to lease space in 11 Times Square in New York City for a showroom that will exhibit green cars and design concepts for future eco-friendly models, according to an article in Real Estate Weekly.
According to the New England-based publication, Hertz plans to occupy a portion of both the ground floor and either the second floor or a basement level of the building. Visitors will be able to tour the space and observe Hertz’s fleet of fuel-efficient cars and electric vehicles.
The space will be one of seven green car showrooms to be revealed by Hertz in the coming years, a source told Real Estate Weekly, and China will likely be a location for another showroom as Hertz recently announced intentions to boost its fleet of green cars there.
This same source also said that Tesla would have a few models on display alongside Hertz vehicles. Cars will not be rented from this showroom; however, its advent is hoped to feed business into Hertz’s two nearby car rental locations.
