Hertz announced Wednesday that it was adding Tesla’s signature model to its rental fleet as part of its “Dream Cars” line, which also offers high-end rentals from companies like Ferrari and Aston Martin.
Unfortunately for most of the U.S., the Model S will only be available for rental in San Francisco and Los Angeles.
“[S]hould customer demand warrant it, we will consider expanding availability to other locations,” Hertz spokeswoman Paula Rivera said in an email.
Rental rates start around $500 per day, plus $0.49 a mile after the 75-mile mark, Rivera said.
The plug-in Model S has garnered rave reviews in recent months. It aced its first crash test last month, and Consumer Reports called the Model S the best car it had ever tested.
A Tesla spokeswoman said the automaker had “seen interest from rental car companies and fleet buyers who want to provide their customers access to a high-performance sedan, which also happens to be electric.”
