Hertz announced it will buy up to 65,000 electric vehicles from Polestar over the next five years. Hertz's massive purchase is billed as a move by car rental companies to add zero-emission vehicles to their fleet.
Hertz said it would order the Polestar 2 sedan to complement its existing fleet of electric vehicles.
Hertz in October announced its order to buy 100,000 electric vehicles from Tesla, mainly for the Model 3
In March, Hertz added the Tesla Model Y to its electric vehicle fleet, according to the Hertz website.
The Hertz partnership “will bring the extraordinary experience of driving an electric car to a wider audience, meeting the various short-term and long-term mobility needs of our joint customers,” said Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath.
