Hertz and Polestar have announced a partnership that includes purchasing up to 65,000 EVs over five years. Availability is expected to begin in Spring 2022 in Europe and late 2022 in North America and Australia.
The partnership with Polestar builds on Hertz’s announcement last year to offer its customers the largest EV rental fleet in North America and one of the largest in the world. Polestar reported that it nearly tripled volumes in 2021 and anticipates more than doubling volumes again this year. Polestar expects volumes to reach 290,000 vehicles per year by the end of 2025.
Hertz will initially order Polestar 2 model vehicles.
