WASHINGTON (Reuters) -Rental car firm Hertz Global Holdings said on Monday it would buy up to 65,000 electric vehicles over five years from Swedish EV maker Polestar, the latest move by the rental car firm to add zero-emission models.
Hertz in October announced its order to purchase 100,000 electric cars from Tesla Inc, primarily the EV maker’s Model 3.
In March, Hertz added Tesla’s mid-size SUV Model Y to its electric vehicle fleet, according to the car rental firm’s website.
The Hertz partnership “will bring the amazing experience of driving an electric car to a wider audience, satisfying a broad variety of our mutual customers‘ short- and longer-term mobility requirements,” Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath said in a statement.
