Investors cheered the news, as evidenced by the rally in Hertz’s shares. The partnership will allow BP Pulse to build and manage a network of fast-charging hubs across the entire United States at Hertz’s locations.

Vic Shao, the President of bp pulse’s US fleet division, said: “This is a landmark moment. It shows the power of bringing together bp’s digital and operational capabilities with a partner like Hertz. Together with its industry-leading electrification ambitions, we can change the future of electric rental cars.”

Stephen Scherr, Hertz CEO, said: “Hertz is accelerating the adoption of electrification by investing in the largest rental fleet of electric vehicles in North America and expanding the availability of charging stations. We are excited to partner with bp pulse to create a national charging infrastructure for the Hertz EV fleet, thereby growing the number of charging options available to our customers and providing them with a premium electric experience and lower emission travel options.”

Hertz has tens of thousands of EVs available to its customers at 500 locations in 38 states. The company has built such a massive fleet via fleet purchases from Polestar, Tesla and GM. Hertz chose these companies that can successfully deliver new cars at a reliable pace.
