Hertz Electric Vehicles

Hertz Car Sales has gone electric.

Hertz Car Sales has started stocking pre-owned electric and hybrid vehicles at its locations across the U.S. Electric vehicles (EVs) are fun to drive, cheaper and easier to maintain than gas-powered vehicles, and contribute fewer emissions into the air. With a fast-growing network of charging stations, an EV might be the right choice for you.

The benefits of plugging in.

Low Cost to Own.

EV owners can expect to spend half as much on maintenance and repair. (Consumer Reports)

Fuel Up At Home.

Charge while you sleep, work, or at a growing number of public chargers.

Quick and Quiet.

Enjoy fast and smooth acceleration, better handling, and a quieter ride.

Best of Both Worlds.

Plug-in hybrids provide electric range for short trips and gas-power for longer journeys.

Learn charging basics.

Level 1 chargers use a standard household outlet and charge about 2-5 miles of range per hour, making Level 1 a good choice for plugin hybrid vehicles but not battery electric vehicles.

Level 2 chargers can be installed at your home by a professional electrician and charge about 10-20 miles of range per hour. A good choice for any EV when charging overnight or all-day is possible.

Level 3 fast chargers are the most efficient and can be found at commercial locations. Level 3 can charge about 60-80 miles of range in about 20 minutes, making it a good choice for any EV when a quick charge is needed on the go.

How to charge from home.

For plug-in hybrid vehicles a standard outlet (Level 1) will be enough for overnight charging.

For battery electric vehicles, a Level 2 charger will require professional installation by a licensed electrician.

If you live in an apartment or condo, consider talking with the property owner about installing a charger or use a nearby public charger. Talk to our sales staff to learn more about charging from home.

Go the distance.

Most batteries will last between 100,000 and 200,000 miles when properly cared for. With battery technology continually advancing, that number will continue to increase.

If you can keep your battery between 20% and 80% charged most days and avoid extremely hot temperatures, you can expect your maintenance to be minimal.

Common questions we get.

This will vary depending on the local price of electricity and gas and where you are charging (at home or public charger), but most EV owners can expect to save on fuel cost. A recent Consumer Reports study found the “typical EV owner who does most of their fueling at home can expect to save an average of $800 to $1,000 a year on fueling costs over an equivalent gasoline-powered car.”

A recent Consumer Reports study found “maintenance and repair costs for EVs are significantly lower over the life of the vehicle – about half – than for gasoline–powered vehicles, which require regular fluid changes and are more mechanically complex. The average dollar savings over the lifetime of the vehicle is about $4,600.”

Yes, Level 1 and Level 2 chargers can be used at home. In fact, the standard 120V outlet supports a Level 1 charger. Level 2 chargers require 240V and can be installed by a licensed electrician. If you do not own your home, you may need to work with your property owner to install a Level 2 charger.

Gas powered vehicles offer a range of 300-400 miles. Battery electric vehicles offer a median range of 250 miles. For EV owners who charge at home, this is more than enough for daily use.
