The top car rental brand takes the lead in partnership with Al-Futtaim Automotive
Hertz UAE, the well-established national franchise, aims to be at the forefront of the green mobility transition, having already become the first car rental brand in the country to introduce fully electric vehicles in its portfolio.
Currently the car rental giant has over 11,000 vehicles in operation in the UAE, 15% of which are either fully electric or hybrid vehicles. Volvo and Polestar feature within Hertz’s green mobility portfolio, with plans to soon include the Chinese BYD range. BYD is the world’s leading new energy vehicle (NEV) manufacturer and the brand was recently introduced into the UAE with Al-Futtaim Automotive as their regional distributors.
Hertz UAE has plans to further electrify the range, which makes a definitive statement, as they have the most diverse car rental offering in the market – ranging from small sedans to luxurious full-size SUVs, from commercial pick-up trucks to large passenger buses.
“Our focus remains on fulfilling our electric vision by ensuring we deliver a whole support system, a fully functioning ecosystem, to all our electric and hybrid vehicle customers – be they corporate or individual renters,” concluded Alexander Maas, Managing Director, Al-Futtaim Finance and Hertz UAE.
