American car rental company Hertz announced Monday that it ordered 100,000 Tesla sedans to be delivered by the end of 2022.
"As consumer interest in electric vehicles (EV) skyrockets, Hertz today is announcing a significant investment to offer the largest EV rental fleet in North America and one of the largest in the world," said the company in a statement.
The investment also includes new EV charging infrastructure across the company's global operations.
"Beginning in early November and expanding through year end, customers will be able to rent a Tesla Model 3 at Hertz airport and neighborhood locations in US major markets and select cities in Europe," said the statement.
"Hertz also is installing thousands of chargers throughout its location network. Customers who rent a Tesla Model 3 will have access to 3,000 Tesla supercharging stations throughout the U.S. and Europe," it added.
With the current order, EVs will make more than 20% of Hertz global fleet, it said.
