See more, save more

Whether you're zipping around town or exploring the country, renting a fully electric vehicle will save you money getting from point A to B. With Supercharger costs lower than the cost of petrol, you're looking at an approximate saving of $49 for a 500km trip. That's more than a 50% saving.

And unlike petrol vehicles, we're not requiring you to return the vehicle with full charge, we'll only ask for you to return with at least 20% battery.

(cost based on $42 Supercharger cost vs $91 petrol cost at a driving distance of 500 km - resource: Tesla NZ Date: March 2021).

Rent a Tesla in NZ

New Zealand is committed to reducing carbon emissions with a goal of being carbon neutral by 2050. Here at GO Rentals, we’re on-board with the mission. As well as giving all our customers the opportunity to offset their carbon emissions when renting any car in the GO fleet, we are now adding 10 new Tesla Model 3s to our fleet, which provide travellers a zero emission vehicle option. Introducing the Tesla Model 3 to our fleet is the first step we’ve taken to show our commitment to the goal of going carbon neutral.

According to a 2019 report by Massey University, there were 18,500 electric vehicles in New Zealand and this number continues to grow every year with a goal of getting 64,000 EVs on New Zealand’s roads by the end of 2021. By adding the Tesla Model 3 to our fleet, GO are doing their bit to encourage a transformation to electric vehicles, giving Kiwis, and eventually, visitors from overseas, The opportunity to test the experience of driving an EV and hopefully encourage more people to buy.

So, do your bit the next time you are planning a road trip here in New Zealand and rent a Tesla – not only will you be renting one of the coolest and most talked about cars out, but you’ll also be doing your bit for the environment.

We're extremely excited to be taking step towards this goal, by introducing the Tesla Model 3 to our fleet.

The Model 3 will be GO's first fully electric vehicle and is a major step towards building a greener, electric and carbon neutral fleet.

As a three time carbon neutral business, Tiaki has been at the forefront of the way we operate. With initiatives in place like allowing our customers to off-set their carbon, we're thrilled to be introducing a vehicle to our fleet which takes us one step further and puts us on a path of an electric future.
