Hertz will be diversifying its EV rental fleet options with 65,000 Polestar 2 electric cars, after signing up with Tesla to lease 100,000 of its Model 3 sedans. The first Polestar 2 EVs will be available to rent at Hertz locations in Europe, the US, and Australia, starting this spring.

Polestar, the Volvo of electric cars, has signed up a deal with rental car giant Hertz for delivering 65,000 vehicles into its rental fleet during the course of the next 5 years. It's a huge win for the Swedish EV maker and for Hertz alike. For Polestar this will be a way to get its electric cars like the Polestar 2 liftback in the hands of consumers to try before they buy, while for Hertz it will be a diversification of its EV options on the way to its stated electrification leadership goals.

That's what makes the Polestar CEO Thomas Ingenlath content even when we don't count the money Polestar will get from Hertz for 65,000 vehicles (on sales of 29,000 for the whole of 2021):

The partnership will bring the amazing experience of driving an electric car to a wider audience. For many of them it may be the first time they have driven an EV, and it will be a Polestar.

Hertz already has a deal with Tesla for the delivery of up to 100,000 electric cars, and now adds the 65,000 Polestar vehicles to its growing EV fleet whose goal is to be the largest in North America and one of the biggest globally. 

The first Polestar 2 models available to rent at Hertz will appear as soon as this spring in Europe and later this year they will be coming to Hertz rental locations in North America and Australia.
