Nextmove, a leading German electric car hire company, has received the first four of its 100 orders of the Model 3 ordered by Tesla. The vehicles, which constitute the 3 Performance model, would join the fleet of more than 300 constantly growing electric vehicles of the company, available for its customers.
Knowing that nextmove has ordered 100 models 3, the company expects deliveries of the electric sedan to continue in the near future, in particular because ships loaded with the vehicle are expected to arrive regularly in the European region. . Nextmove currently has about 350 vehicles. Thus, when Tesla completed the order for the 100 Model 3 car rental company, the electric sedan would account for approximately 20% of the nextmove fleet.
In a press release, Stefan Moeller, CEO of nextmove, expressed his optimism about the electric sedan, highlighting the success of the vehicle in North America and the imminent invasion of the European market for electric vehicles.
"The Tesla Model 3 has already made a successful launch in the North American market. In 2018, it was the best-selling premium vehicle in the United States and the world's best-selling electric vehicle. A real tsunami is now heading towards Europe. Disruptive change is in full swing, "he said.
Jochen Rudat, Director for Central Europe at Tesla, echoed the words of nextmove management, adding that the company's car rental services would provide future model 3 owners with the opportunity to experience of the vehicle.
"We are delighted to hand Tesla's first four models 3 to the next move. Leasing offers potential buyers the opportunity to see for themselves the everyday convenience and multiple benefits of our affordable mid-range vehicle. This is why many drivers have already found their Tesla in recent years, "he said.
nextmove is one of the largest Tesla customers in Germany. The company already offers S and X models in its range of vehicles, as well as electric vehicle offerings from Jaguar, Hyundai, Kia, Volkswagen, GM, BMW, Renault and Nissan. to name a few. The company also plans to soon add new electric vehicles such as the Audi e-tron to its park.
The car rental company is no stranger to Tesla's electric cars and their capabilities. Last year, nextmove managed to set a new hypermilie record for the Model S by allowing the full-size sedan to travel 701 miles with a single charge. The company also achieved a similar feat for model 3: the electric sedan traveled 100 km on a single charge while traveling almost entirely on the autopilot.
