Kyte, a company that delivers rental cars right to your doorstep, has announced the launch of its new Tesla subscription product. Available in San Francisco, California, Manhattan and Brooklyn, New York, and Jersey City, New Jersey, on April 15, the Model 3 long-range all-wheel-drive trim level will be available to customers for monthly rental for as little as $995.

The deployment of Kyte’s Tesla Model 3 fleet is “the next step in a series of impressive successes from the California-based company,” Kyte said in a statement. The Model 3 fleet will soon make its way to Kyte’s current fourteen markets.

Pricing starts at $995 for the Model 3, which will get a customer one month with the all-electric sedan. Three-month terms cost $1,350 per month and six months for $1,125 per month. The price of each rental term includes maintenance, insurance, registration and roadside assistance.

The benefit of the subscription service is the Tesla experience without the hassle of ownership and the long-term commitment, Kyte said. “Kyte’s offering will allow customers to reap all the benefits while avoiding the challenges – no maintenance and no lockout. Plus, for those who love the performance of their Tesla, Kyte offers the flexibility to extend subscriptions flexibly at any time. »

Subscription programs offer flexibility for those who wish to rent a car for a shorter period without the lengthy commitments of actual ownership. However, they are also very suitable for traveling workers who are in cities for months at a time. Instead of offering gas-powered rental vehicles, Teslas and other electric vehicles are starting to appear more frequently as options in rental company fleets. While Kyte is the newest option, the most notable is probably Hertz, which recently added Model Y vehicles to its EV lineup.

“Being able to expand our fleet and amplify the adoption of electric vehicles is critical to our mission. We not only want to be innovators in how we give people access to cars, but we want to to be a catalyst for the rapid change happening in the transportation industry as a whole,” said Erik Zahnlecker, Chief Product Officer at Kyte. “This rollout is critical to our growth strategy and central to our electrified vision. , autonomous and shared.”

Kyte said its original goal was to give people a short-term rental experience with a variety of options. Now that it offers electric vehicle offerings, Kyte adds another layer of customer-centric, technology-based operational excellence, he said. “Introducing this new offering is not only unique, it’s affordable – proving you don’t need to spend too much to experience the premium EV market.”
