Back in December last year the Tesla Roadster’s Hertz rental deal became part of their electric vehicle program. We can now tell you that the green sports car is now available in a number of places throughout the US. There is still an issue with the price, yes you do not have to spend $109,000, but $1,500 for a day is considered to be a bit of a premium.
This is not part of the normal rental service, but Hertz Entertainment. The reason for this is that larger then average rental price tag. What makes this EV so popular is that it is able to achieve 125mph, along with a 0-60mph time of just 3.7 seconds. You have two color choices, Thunder Gray or Fusion Red and two model options, hardtop or convertible.
What makes this service even more special is the fact that you do not need to go to your local Hertz dealer, as they will deliver the Tesla Roadster to your door. Now that this service has extended across North America, it is now expected for Hertz to include it in China by the end of 2012.
We know that the numbers of these vehicles are limited, so you will only be able to rent one if you are a member. However, this is a simple process, all you need do is visit the Connect by Hertz website for all the details and choose where you are based and then the rest is simple.
Would you consider hiring a Tesla Roadster considering how expensive it is to own one?
