Although many gearheads are likely aware of the long relationship between the Hertz rental car company and the Ford Mustang, it also turns out that you can rent a growing number of supercars from Hertz—now including the Tesla Model S. Per Hertz, the high-performance luxury EV has joined its Dream Cars roster at facilities in the San Francisco and Los Angeles airports.
"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, chairman and CEO of the company. “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.”
Now, as you might guess, the cost of renting a Tesla Model S will be a bit higher than for your typical mass-market sedan. The starting point here is $400 per day, with an allowance of 75 miles per day and drivers paying 49 cents per mile after that. But it’s a surprisingly good bargain compared to the rest of Hertz’s Dream Carslineup, offered at 35 locations across the United States, as detailed on the following page.
