At EV HIRE we believe that we share and embody the core values of the automotive brands that we offer for self drive hire: a customer focused approach, well made, high quality products and a commitment to providing the latest and best versions of each product.

Despite only running for just a couple of years we have already demonstrated this by expanding our fleet, with notable additions from Mercedes-AMG and Lamborghini.  In addition to adding completely new models we feel it’s time to update 1 or 2 that we have had in our fleet for a while. Our Tesla Model X has sat at the core of our lineup since the very beginning of EV HIRE and still remains one of our most popular vehicles. Recently, Tesla announced a huge upgrade package that was headed for Model X and naturally we had to learn more.

Unlike most other customer’s Tesla customer’s are used to applying regular updates to their cars, in the form of ‘over the air’ software updates, such as: improvements to user experience and efficiency or to add re-booted 80’s Atari games. As an aside, by choosing to experience our Model X you get all of this done for you, which means less hassle and the ability to experience a fully updated Model X. However, Tesla’s latest update package comes in the form of significant hardware updates, broken up into 4 main components:

More efficient design

Tesla’s latest generation drive unit technology (synchronous reluctance motors) with optimised electronics (silicon carbide) and improved lubrication, cooling, bearings and gear designs are being installed into all new Model S and X models, which result in >93% efficiency. All of these changes improve how the car drives, but also extend it’s range. This >10% increase in range is largely thanks to the placement of synchronous reluctance motors at the front and induction motors at the rear. To augment this, electricity is now discharged and recouped (via the regenerative braking system) far more efficiently than before, which means these combined upgrades provide up to 30 miles of extra range. To further compliment this extension in range, power and torque have also been increased as has the 0-62mph time for a more enjoyable, dynamic driving experience.

Faster Charging

Thanks to the enhanced powertrains (and because Tesla have kept the 100kwh battery packs in their performance models) and the enabling of 200kwh charging via V3 Superchargers and 145kwh via V2 superchargers, a massive 50% reduction in charging time has been achieved.

Fully adaptive suspension

The air suspension has been overhauled and now offers fully adaptive dampers that work in conjunction with the driver’s input and various sensors to adjust in realtime to bumpy or challenging road conditions. The new system also lowers the car automatically while cruising for better stability and aero efficiency.

Constant refinement

Finally, new wheel bearings and new tyre designs have been developed to compliment the new adaptive dampers and further extend ride, range and steering.

Naturally, after reading about these significant hardware updates (and software updates that will come later to further optimise them) we were very excited. As our Model X is one of our most popular cars and, as we said at the beginning, we want to bring our customers the latest and best versions of each car, we are proud to announce that we have added a 2019 Tesla Model X ‘Raven’ to our fleet. We are confident that all these changes will make our falcon doored, electric super SUV even more enjoyable and easy to live with.

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.
