Hertz Introduces BMWs to New Zealand Fleet

Hertz Prestige Collection of luxury vehicles now extended to New Zealand

Auckland, 13 August 2013 – The Hertz Corporation (NYSE:HTZ), the world’s leading general use car rental brand, has introduced the latest model BMW 3 Series sedan (320i) to the New Zealand fleet as part of the company’s ongoing commitment to provide innovative car hire options. The move also marks the extension of the Hertz Prestige Collection range of high end, luxury vehicles to New Zealand.

Michel Taride, Group President, Hertz International, said: “We are pleased to now offer customers the chance to drive the BMW 3 Series sedan, most fuel efficient and best performing model in its competitive class. The extension of the Prestige Collection into New Zealand builds on our huge success of this range of sophisticated, luxurious vehicles in the US and Europe.”

Having won many international awards, the prestigious 320i from the renowned German manufacturer sets new benchmarks in terms of sporting prowess, elegance and comfort. As well as featuring innovative technologies from BMW’s ‘EfficientDynamics’ stable, which reduce fuel consumption and boost performance, the 320i has an award-winning fuel efficient engine, brake energy regeneration and Stop/Start technology.

The high performing 320i sedan will be initially available at two key Auckland locations, the Airport and Victoria Street Downtown.

Mark Righton, Hertz New Zealand Country Manager, added: “The introduction of BMWs to our New Zealand fleet highlights our dedication to providing customers with a broad rental offering and value for money – from our economy models right up to these prestigious motor vehicles. These BMWs are currently being introduced into Auckland, but we’ll be monitoring customer feedback and demand to determine whether we’ll extend these cars to other locations around the country in the future.”

The Prestige Collection forms part of Hertz’s global collections of speciality vehicles. All cars in the Hertz Fun, Green, Adrenaline and Prestige Collections come with the Hertz Make and Model Guarantee, so renters know that the car that they book is the exact one they will drive away in.

Hertz customers can choose one of these remarkable BMW vehicles for their next rental by visiting www.hertz.co.nz. Australian renters can book BMWs in New Zealand by visiting www.hertz.com.au. After selecting the Auckland pick-up location and booking dates, the currently available BMW vehicles will be displayed.
