Tesla rental USA

When you do find an electric rental car in the USA, the chances are it’ll be a Tesla. Nearly two thirds of all EV’s registered in the USA are from Tesla. Whilst aimed at the premium / luxury end of the market and priced accordingly, the discerning business traveller is more likely to find an electric rental car in the USA than the eco-conscious family or young couple. Where EV rental cars stretch beyond the Tesla, the Nissan Leaf if the model of choice with space of 5, plus ample luggage and range in excess of 200 miles, it’s a useful addition to many rental fleets and we expect to see numbers grow significantly over the coming years.
