EV Hire was first founded out of our love for exotic and performance vehicles (hence our name), but this love and appreciation also extends into the all electric world. 2 of our first hire vehicles came from Tesla, in the form of our Model S and Model X (both P100d with Ludicrous mode, of course). A lot of people still don’t understand the appeal of electric cars, such as Tesla, but when you look at their sub 3 second 0-62mph times and futuristic designs, all with the serenity and comfort of virtually silent running, it starts to make sense, at least to us. It’s probably also important to mention here that our Model X has been one of, if not our most popular hire car to date – it must be the falcon doors, if nothing else.

Tesla have recently released a new car to help complete their current line-up – the Model Y. The Model Y slots in-between the new Model 3 and Model X as a ‘crossover’ and far more affordable SUV.  Despite this, it still comes packed full of Tesla’s reliable and high performing systems. Multiple version will be made, all with their own range and output figures:

  • Standard RWD: 230miles range, 120mph top speed, 0-60mph = 5.9s
  • Long Range RWD: 300miles range, 130mph top speed, 0-60mph = 5.5
  • Long Range AWD: 280miles range, 135 top speed, 0-60mph = 4.8
  • Performance AWD: 280miles range, 150mph top speed, 0-60mph = 3.5

These can all access Tesla’s new 3rd generation supercharger network, which means up to 168 miles of range from just 15 minutes of charging. The interior is upholstered in the same minimalistic and clean way, but now with a horizontally mounted 15 inch digital screen, 12 way electrically adjustable seats (with a seat capacity of up to 7 people), a premium sound system comprised from 14 surround-sound speakers and a sub woofer, internal internet connection, unrivalled audio and media facilities and front and rear USB connectors. As we’re talking about a Tesla we can’t forget to mention AutoPilot. The Model Y comes with Tesla’s upgraded camera, sensor and software systems to be able to facilitate even more confidence inspiring autopilot functionality, that can merge on and off of motorways, drive itself through city streets and come to find you in a car park if you cant find it.

Unsurprisingly, Tesla have offered up yet another intriguing vehicle, but the question for us is, shall we order one and be the first UK car hire company to offer Tesla Model Y hire in London? If the answer is yes, we would of course go for a high specification version of the Performance AWD, with the same 0-60mph time as a Ferrari F430.

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!
