German car rental company buys 3 Tesla Model 3 EVs for its fleet
In a move which makes Tesla’s new Model 3 electric vehicle (EV) available for rent for the first time in Europe, 3 units of Model 3 EVs have recently been purchased by a car rental company in Neuss, Germany.
According to reports, German car rental company Autovermietung Arndt has recently taken the delivery of the 3 Tesla Model 3 EVs. The vehicles will be included by the company in its fleet of rental cars.
The disclosure by Autovermietung Arndt about the purchase of 3 Tesla Model 3 EVs for its fleet is noteworthy because it means that the Model 3 -- which is officially available only in North America -- is reaching new markets like Europe, ahead of its planned launch in those markets. Model 3 is likely to officially arrive in Germany in late 2018 or early 2019.
The purchase of 3 Tesla Model 3 EVs by Autovermietung Arndt substantiates some previous reports which had revealed that resellers are apparently making a profit by purchasing Model 3 vehicles on the used market in the US and importing these vehicles in Europe.
Meanwhile, the addition of 3 Tesla Model 3 EVs to the Autovermietung Arndt rental-car fleet comes after two other Tesla EVs -- a Model X P90D and a Model S P100D -- are already included in the company’s fleet. The car rental company is making these Tesla EVs available for customers to rent.
