Rent a Tesla? It’s cheap at $500 per day compared to a Ferrari

| | ,

Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Porsche Audi and Mercedes-Benz are “dream cars,” to rent. At least that’s how Hertz describes its rental program of top-end cars that now will include arguably the most unique vehicle in the top echelon lot — Tesla.

Hertz, Enterprise and other rental car agencies are now offering limited Tesla Model S models with different battery sizes in selected Southern California locations.

Like Hertz, Enterprise has a special name for its high-end fleet. The Tesla is in the agency’s Exotic Car Collection.

“The Tesla Model S is a new luxury sedan that is transforming the way the public looks at electric vehicles,” said Adam Belsky, Enterprise’s group sales and marketing manager for the Exotic Car Collection in Southern California.

But, as expected, renting a Tesla (or an other luxury car) isn’t cheap.

At Hertz, the Tesla Model S will cost $500 per day, and cost $.49 per mile after 75 miles. That’s $150 more than a Porsche or Mercedes-Benz, which have rates of $350 per day, plus $.49 per mile after 75 miles.

But the Tesla, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz are cheap compared to other offerings. Consider:

Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bentley: $1,500 per day, plus $3 per mile after 75 miles. The Aston Martin Vantage and Audi R8 are $1,000 per day, plus $3 per mile after 75 miles.

Rental prices for exotic car at Enterprise weren’t readily available.

The Tesla Model S has a range of 300 miles and accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds.
