Companies emerge from bankruptcy all the time, and all bankruptcies are not the same (re-organize vs. liquidate)A year ago Hertz was in bankruptcy. Some turn around.
Tesla will setup Hertz customers for billing and access to the superchargers. And yea, that's a great point about Hertz adding chargers. I'd agree for sure they will add supercharegers at their locations. How else are they going to charge their fleet? It's a requirement for Hertz.Curious how charging is gonna play out. I’m guessing Tesla will bill Hertz directly and then they’ll add it to your bill when you return the vehicle; wonder what their upcharge will be. Also curious if they’re gonna be installing level 2 or even level 3 chargers at their rental locations, that’s gonna be a pretty big capital investment.
That won't be a concern imo. Hertz and Tesla will have worked out some maintenance agreement as Hertz and others maintain their own fleets.Tesla is also gonna have to step up their service game because of this. If Hertz is spending 5 or so Billion dollars on Tesla products they’re not gonna stand for having their assets out of service for any length of time. If a 3 goes down they can’t just run it over to the local fillin’ station and have Clyde give it a once over; Tesla is gonna have to be able to service these cars anywhere in the country. The current service model seems to be a bit stretched, I’m interested in seeing how things change because of this purchase.
Hmmm. I would expect Hertz to be smart enough to factor in service requirements, and for Tesla to staff up for same.
