Hertz Updates US Fleet with Refresh of 2015 Model Year Vehicles

The Hertz Corporation, which includes the Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty brands, is updating its US rental car fleet with a significant refresh of 2015 model year cars ranging from budget-friendly sedans and SUVs to high-end, luxury models. By 30th April 2015 the company had added over 235,000 new vehicles from a variety of manufacturers providing customers with a wide selection of low-mileage makes and models. Hertz has further diversified its rental fleet options with leading in-car products and services.

The fleet refresh includes an extensive selection of 2015 models from Chrysler, Fiat, Ford, General Motors, Hyundai, Infiniti, Kia, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota, Volkswagen and more. Renters will be able to enjoy the newest models of the award-winning and fuel-efficient customer favourites – the Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry and Chevrolet Cruze, which will be prominent across US locations.

Additionally, Hertz has expanded its exclusive luxury Prestige and Dream Cars Collections to include the 2015 Mercedes Benz C-Class, the 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo and the 2015 Mercedes CLA45 AMG.

“We are thrilled to bring customers across all of our brands not only a wide variety of vehicles but better vehicle options,” said Tom Frese, Senior Vice President, Fleet and Procurement. “With this refresh, we are continuing to diversify our fleet with a mix of models that includes some of the safest, most fuel-efficient and top-rated vehicles in the market. We are working hard to put our renters only in the best of what’s available, while meeting a range of customers’ tastes and needs.

“At this point we have delivered a substantial number from our 2015 fleet purchase to our US rental locations. We expect that by mid-2015 we will have greatly improved our fleet’s mileage profile, restoring it to our historic low levels. Safety and reliability remain top priorities, and we are working hard to ensure our entire fleet reflects this.”

In addition to the company’s cars being low-mileage, safe and reliable, Hertz believes it has one of the most fuel-efficient fleets in the industry. Over 80 percent of Hertz’s vehicles have a minimum fuel-efficiency rating of 28 highway miles per gallon.

Other improved products and service offerings available with Hertz rentals include the award-winning loyalty programme Hertz Gold Plus Rewards, the Hertz NeverLost and the NeverLost Companion app, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, PlatePass, for convenient travel through the country’s toll systems, and more. Renters can easily add one of these products or upgrade their rental to a bigger car or one of Hertz’s premium collections online at www.hertz.com or at the counter on arrival.
