Hertz has joined forces with Greenfleet, as the Official Vehicle Partner for its 2023 EV Rally 3-7 July.
Hertz will provide electric vehicles for the five-day event that goes across the five capital cities in the UK and Ireland to highlight the real-world capabilities of electric vehicles and track the progress being made with charging infrastructure in the UK.
Hertz, which is investing to create one of the largest EV rental fleets in the world and is rapidly expanding its electric fleet across the UK, will provide four electric vehicles to the EV Rally Team and its media crew.
The company will also enter one of its own vehicles to enable staff, media, social media influencers and other stakeholders to share the experience of long-distance touring in an electric vehicle.
The five-day 2023 EV Rally sets teams the challenge of driving to all five capital cities in the UK and Ireland, starting in Cardiff, HQ for Lex Autolease, and ending the tour in Dublin, visiting key charging hubs, clean energy projects and landmarks along the 1,000-mile (1,600km) route.
The event is also intended to showcase a variety of services and technologies related to EVs including telematics, tyres and, of course, EV rentals.
