Estero-based Hertz and Uber are accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles in the U.S. through a new exclusive partnership to make up to 50,000 Teslas available by 2023 for drivers to rent when using the Uber network, Hertz announced Wednesday. This partnership is the largest expansion of electric vehicles on a mobility platform in North America, marking another step toward Uber’s zero-emissions goal. Starting Nov. 1, drivers can rent Teslas from Hertz through this program in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Washington, D.C., with a nationwide expansion planned in the coming weeks. On Monday, Hertz announced its most significant investment to offer one of the largest EV rental fleets in the world. This includes an initial order of 100,000 Teslas by the end of 2022 and new EV charging infrastructure across Hertz’s global operations.
