According to foreign media reports, on the 25th of last month, the car rental company Hertz announced on the official website, They will order 100,000 electric vehicles from Tesla before the end of 2022, It will also purchase a batch of charging infrastructure and order 100,000 vehicles at a time, which is also the largest order Tesla has received so far.
Although Hertz announced that it will order 100,000 electric cars from Tesla, even with such a large order, Tesla will not have a discount in price.
The day after Hertz announced the order, that is, on the 26th of last month, Tesla CEO Musk said on social media that the electric cars they sold to Hertz were not discounted, and the price was the same as the price consumers bought. .
Musk, who is active on social media, revealed on Tuesday local time that they have not yet signed an electric vehicle procurement contract with Hertz.
At the same time, Musk also revealed on social media that the demand for Tesla’s electric cars exceeds production and the supply is in short supply. Therefore, the profit margins of the electric cars they sell to Hertz are the same as those sold to other consumers. The transaction will not have any impact on Tesla’s finances.
Selling electric cars to Hertz at the same profit margin as other consumers means that Musk reiterates that the electric cars they sell to Hertz will not have price discounts and are normal prices.
Although Musk revealed that they have not signed an agreement with Hertz before, the previous business of the two companies is already in progress. Hertz public relations director Lauren Luster revealed in an email to foreign media that Tesla has begun to deliver electric cars to them.
