Auckland- Kiwi owned GO Rentals invites drivers to experience the Tesla on their next road trip, today welcoming the Tesla Model 3 to their nationwide fleet.

The fully electric Tesla Model 3, which can travel up to 500km’s on a single charge, is now available to hire at all six GO Rentals’ locations; Auckland (City and Airport), Wellington, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown

An added bonus for customers trying out a Tesla is that they can return it with just 20% of the battery remaining, rather than the full tank required for petrol or diesel rentals. GO Rentals now offers two EV charging points in each location, thanks to co-funding from the government’s Low Emissions Vehicles Contestable Fund, administered by EECA (Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority).

Nicki Sutherland, EECA’s Group Manager Investment and Engagement, says  “Support for rental car operators like GO Rentals provides an accessible way for people to experience EVs, which we know is one of the most effective ways to help people become familiar with them.”

GO Rentals’ new business relationship with Tesla as part of its strategy to rebound from Covid-19 by offering domestic and international travellers the most environmentally sustainable, enjoyable and carbon-neutral rental car experience possible. This continues GO Rentals’ investment in innovation which includes contactless rental booking, allowing customers to organise a shuttle from the airport, check-in via the app and ditch the paperwork. 

James Dalglish, Chief Operating Officer at GO Rentals, says “We are excited to be able to offer the luxurious and sustainable experience of driving a Tesla to our customers. The Tesla Model 3’s single-charge range of up to 500kms means it will be a popular choice for the Kiwi road trip.”

  • Luxury: full leather interior and expansive glass roof
  • Technology: a 15-inch media, navigation and control centre
  • Sustainability: carbon-neutral road tripping
