Hertz ceo resigns in disgrace after buying 100,000 Teslas.

Sharing is Caring!

Hertz Global Holdings Inc. announced that its chief executive officer, Stephen Scherr, will step down from his position at the end of the month, according to a Friday press release.

Earlier this year, the rental car company moved to trim its electric vehicle inventory despite previously setting targets to transition 25% of its fleet to EVs by the end of 2024. Citing costly repairs, Hertz stated that it would sell 20,000 vehicles, or roughly one-third of its global EV fleet, and reinvest the funds in gas-powered alternatives.

The company agreed to purchase 100,000 Teslas by the end of 2022 and 65,000 Polestar vehicles over the next several years. Hertz has since re-evaluated its EV investments.

In January, Hertz’s used car website listed more than 700 EVs for sale, including Tesla Model 3 and Model Y vehicles, BMW’s i3, and Chevrolet’s Bolt. The firm aims to have all of the cars sold by 2025.
