Hertz announced on Tuesday that it had reached an agreement with General Motors
to buy 175,000 electric vehicles from the automaker's Chevrolet, Buick,
GMC, Cadillac, and BrightDrop brands over the next five years,
expanding its EV fleet once more. The initial models, the Chevrolet Bolt EV
and Bolt EUV will be available to customers starting in the first quarter of 2019.
The agreement, which is valid through 2027, will add a wide range of models to
Hertz's expanding fleet of EVs. The rental firm anticipates that its clients will travel
around 8 billion miles in
those EVs between now and 2027,
averting the release of an estimated 3.5 million metric tonnes of carbon dioxide.
