Additional Commercial Vehicles to Meet Demand

Hertz New Zealand Introduces Additional Commercial Vehicles to Fleet to Meet Demand

Auckland, New Zealand – 25 July 2014 – Hertz (NYSE:HTZ), the world’s largest general use car rental brand, has introduced two new commercial vehicle lines to its New Zealand fleet following high demand from the infrastructure and agricultural industries. The Toyota Hilux and Toyota Hiace ZX vehicles are now available in Auckland, Christchurch, Hamilton and Bay of Plenty.

The stylish yet robust double-cab diesel Hilux 4WD offers ample space for transporting heavy goods and tools while comfortably seating five people. With a sizeable cargo tray, tow bar and parking sensors, this strong and dependable ute is perfect for carrying large equipment, particularly across difficult terrain.

The versatile and spacious Hiace ZX Cargo van seats up to three people and features low level loading, a rear step bumper, tie-down hooks and a backing monitor. Standard building panels fit into the back compartment with ease, making the Hiace an ideal vehicle for construction workers and tradesmen needing room for bulky equipment and machinery.

Mark Righton, Hertz Country Manager for New Zealand, said: “With a construction boom across the country, we’re offering a practical and cost-effective solution for companies and government departments that experience fluctuating demand for commercial vehicles. Available as either short or long-term rentals, both vehicles are perfectly suited to the working and driving conditions in New Zealand.

“The Hilux has carved a niche for itself based on its rugged reliability, high performance and low maintenance and will suit the hardiest families and toughest workers. The Hiace ZX is the ideal minivan for towing and touring as well as everyday driving needs.”

All commercial vehicles come with Hertz Make and Model Guarantee ensuring customers drive away in the exact car they booked.

As a global leader in its field, Hertz offers a range of innovative products and services in New Zealand including Hertz Gold Plus Rewards, the specially designed NeverLost® satellite navigation system in a range of languages, Mobile Wi-Fi and Premium Roadside Assistance.

In addition to commercial vehicles, the New Zealand fleet includes a range of economy, intermediate and full-size cars for hire. Luxurious BMW vehicles are available via the Prestige Collection as well as a wide selection of 4WDs and minivans.
