It is currently very difficult to get your hands on the wheel of a Tesla car, demand is very strong and the current supply problems are disrupting the automaker’s production. To wait, why not rent a Tesla from Carrefour?
Carrefour created a big buzz by announcing this week the addition of Model 3 and Model Y to its rental car offer! 6,500 Tesla brand vehicles are available for the day and for longer at around 30 Carrefour Locations. In Ile-de-France, you can rent one of these cars in Pontault-Combault, Rambouillet or L’Haÿ-les-Roses.

Rental points are also present in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Occitania and New Aquitaine. The brand wants to extend its offer by September to 80 stores throughout France. What divert customers from the usual rental companies, and even occasional drivers who would like to test a Tesla before cracking… Or receiving an order, which can take several months of waiting.

According to Jean-Baptiste Prévoteau, director of merchant services at Carrefour, the brand hopes to reach an 80% utilization rate and to achieve this, it will cut prices! The first day of rental is thus billed at only 59 euros. The following will have prices between 119 and 149 euros, depending on whether you rent during the week or at the weekend. This is much less than the 200 euros requested, on average, by the competition.
For the company, it is a question of offering a “pleasure experience” to all those who are interested in the electric automobile. They will also be able to check the density of the charging network, the Tesla Superchargers of course, but also the Carrefour Energie stations! Carrefour Location is making a big move to strengthen its positions in France, while the rental company has recorded a 20% increase in its service.
