Hertz and Fedex

Saw my first FedEx all electric truck in downtown San Francisco yesterday. Had to walk around it to figure out what it was. It has a unique wraparound windshield.

Also, Hertz announced they will rent the S in the SF and LA markets.

When we start seeing big players getting onboard because it makes economic sense for their fleet, it's a good sign that we have gone from being fans of a trend to a predictor of what the future will be like.

I saw an advertisement online for a Hertz Model S rental at $1,500 per day. It didn't say what it costs if you don't bring it back with a full charge.

Ouch. That is a lot of money for a day. You can rent an exotic during the week (though not the weekend) for less money than that.

Just saw an article mention "starting at $500 per day."
Also had to laugh to see our family car mentioned with "other exotics."

jbunn:

Did you happen to notice the model of the electric truck?
Was it perhaps the Nissan eNV-1200?
I've heard that Nissan is testing some new electric versions of this ICE vehicle with FedEx.

Yeah, the ad I saw was a few weeks ago, so the price is at lot less at $500

Sash,

I studied the vehicle carefully, but did not see a company I recognized.

Here is a three year old article. The truck shown is the same as the one I saw. You can see the wrap around windshield.

They are apparently sourcing from multiple companies. The one shown looks like a Navistar eStar.
