We have some news…

The title of this blog may be a giveaway in itself, but let’s delay our proclamation and build as much anticipation as possible, shall we?

Around 12 months ago we were joined by three automotive content creators to welcome a new addition to our self-drive hire fleet. The content creators were Vehicle Virgins, Supercars of London and Galaxy89cars. The car? The brand new Mercedes G63 AMG.

But why the G63? Before we answer that directly, let’s refresh our memories about some of the updated model’s key features.

The 2019 G63 is powered by an adjusted version of the engine at Mercedes-AMG’s core, their 4L BiTurbo V8. In G63 this power-plant produces 577bhp and 850nm of torque. Before we inform or remind you of what performance this unleashes, let’s remind ourselves how much G63 weighs. It weighs 2650kg, but let’s be honest, it hasn’t been a lightweight since it’s genesis in the 1970s. With that in mind, let’s hastily return to it’s level of performance. The 2019 G63 can sprint to 62mph or 100kph in just 4.5s and keeps going until 137mph (or 149mph if the optional driver’s pack has been spec’d). However, G63 has always been a brute with astonishing power, so it’s real allure comes from these next features.

Inside, G63 comes equipped with luxurious seats with padded headrests, high quality fit and finish throughout and there’s even a fully configurable 64 colour ambient lighting system and IWC clock. The new G63 doesn’t come with Mercedes’ new UI called ‘MBUX’, but it does come with their ‘extended cockpit’ that consists of 2 12.5 inch HD screens and an updated and highly innovative interface with an almost inexhaustible array of options. In terms of actual driving, G63 is fitted with a new and very smooth 9-speed automatic transmission and a trick suspension setup that ensures this new model only resembles it’s predecessor by the similarities in its exterior aesthetic.

After taking all of this into consideration we felt this new model had the right balance of tech, luxury and usability to balance out it’s undeniable street presence and brutish power. This is exactly why we added one (probably the first G63 for self drive hire in the UK at that) to our fleet almost a year ago.

It seems we made a very good decision in adding a G63 to our line-up as it has been one of, if not the most popular hire car on our fleet. As you know (because we keep reminding you), one of our core aims is to provide the best customer experience possible, right from when you call or email to inquire, until you reluctantly bring your car of choice back from your experience.


So, to our announcement! G63 has recently been upgraded so we thought it was only right, due to the reasons above, that we stay ahead of the game and add one of these updated models to our self-drive hire fleet. ‘But what are these updates?!’ we hear you ask. During your hire of our latest G63 your front passenger can now watch TV on the car’s central screen and both rear passengers can enjoy ‘plug-in’ entertainment of their choice thanks to G63’s dual screens in the rear. The G63 is already perfectly configured for winter driving, but our car goes one step further by coming with the optional ‘Winter Pack’. This option enables you to pre-heat the car before you get in and de-frost the front windscreen faster, thanks to it’s heated windscreen.

We have a feeling our latest fleet addition is going to be very busy over the coming months, so book your 2020 G63 AMG self drive hire in London today!

Alex Smith, Hat Films

I can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute of it and it has become an extension of my life!

Paul Wallace, Supercars of London

From start to finish, the Tesla rental experience was effortless. The EV Hire guys delivered the ludicrously fast Model X P100D to my doorstep. Wonderful service! After my trip, EV hire were ready and waiting to collect the vehicle. Easy and efficient!

Tim Burton, Shmee150

The car is absolutely incredible and I was sad to hand the keys back!! I have always been a little weary of vehicle hire in the past but EV Hire have completely changed my perspective.I wouldn't hesitate to hire from these guys again.
First class. I will back.

James Daly, JD Personal Training

The best Christmas present my husband has ever had. Great service and Daryl is exceptionally good at his job. Thank you, see you next year!

Ruth Moyler

My wife and I hired a Tesla Model S P100DL+ (unbelievable car) for the weekend from EV Hire. The service was first class. The car was delivered clean and fully charged to our house and collected once we had finished. All questions were promptly answered both before and during the rental process. We also found the rates very reasonable for what is a truly phenomenal driving experience. I cannot highly recommend them enough!

Mr & Mrs Tabbah

Really great experience in the model S. We drove from Hampshire to Pembrokeshire and back for a work team building experience on the coast. Used every feature of the car plus the supercharger network.
I'd like make a particular mention of Daryl who provided an excellent service. He's a very trustworthy guy.
Unreservedly recommend this company.

James Simms

Incredible car and overall a lovely weekend with a Tesla Model X P100DL+. Communication was great all the way through and will have to give the Tesla Model S P100DL+ a go at some point! Delivery and collection was effortless. Would recommend.

Mr Khalid El-Qasabagli

Very easy & trouble free rental process. Wonderful customer service. A great experience. Already recommended them EV Hire a few people

Zoe Nolan

Don't doubt this company - the cars are new and in perfect condition. Tesla P100DL+'s are a huge amount of fun and Daryl runs this company properly.
To top it off, EV HIRE dropped the car off at my house and also collected it on the day of pickup included in the price. Can't fault them!

Anthony Herbert

First class experience and a wonderful car (Hired a Model X P100DL+). Pre-hire every question I had was answered quickly and the EV Hire team really couldn't do more to make sure I got the most out of the experience. Car was immaculate and just the most incredible drive - thank you so much for a weekend that will stay with me for a long time - your passion for Tesla's is infectious!

Jon Barrett

I have to say my eyes have been well and truly opened. The Model S P100DL+ we hired was top of the line and I have NEVER been in a car that accelerated so fast. Sublime. Brilliant customer service. Heartily recommend EVHire.

Richard Dawes

Had a Tesla Model X P100D for a day out in Oxfordshire. What a great car, wonderful service and amazing experience overall.
Thanks to the entire EV Hire team!
