If you’re looking to give a brand-new electric vehicle a spin, you’ll get a charge out of the options now available at Tampa International Airport. 

Car rental company Hertz is investing heavily in its EV offerings, recently installing 42 Level 2 Tesla Wall Connector charging stations in its space at TPA’s Consolidated Rental Car Center.

Customers at TPA’s Hertz location can now rent Tesla’s Model 3 and Model Y; the Polestar 2; Chevrolet’s Bolt EV and EUV; and Hyundai’s Kona.

Hertz plans to add more makes and models this year as part of its efforts to make a full quarter of its fleet electric by the end of 2024.

“We support our partners’ sustainability efforts, including electric vehicle charging infrastructure,” TPA Vice President of Concessions and Commercial Parking Laurie Noyes said. “These new charging stations demonstrate the investment Hertz is making in electric vehicles and provides more options for TPA rental car customers who may prefer an EV, or even want to try one out for the first time.”

Hertz, which began renting EVs to Airport customers last year, also plans to install 12 Tesla Superchargers at its Airport maintenance facility in the future.

“As Hertz builds the largest EV rental fleet in North America, it’s critical to partner with airports across the country to create a robust charging infrastructure,” said Joshua Blum, Hertz Vice President of Global Real Estate and Concessions. “We’re thrilled that TPA is prioritizing electrification and supports our efforts to make EVs more accessible to people visiting the Tampa area.”
