Electric vehicle drivers shared their frustrations after winter weather across the U.S. created new issues for charging and operating their cars.
Months before Hertz's surprise announcement that it would sell-off much of its electric vehicles, the White House praised the company's green efforts.
Rental car giant Hertz on Thursday said it will sell about 20,000 electric vehicles from its U.S. fleet and expects to invest in more gas-powered vehicles.
The White House on Wednesday announced that Tesla has committed to expand its electric vehicle charging network and meet the Department of Transportation's new universal charging standards.
To date, at least 230 cases have been filed against Hertz through an expansive lawsuit in Delaware bankruptcy court seeking over $750 million in damages.
Hertz claimed that these incidents are "rare and happen only after exhaustive attempts to reach the customer."
Hertz is adding the Tesla Model Y to its rental fleet alongside the Model 3. The vehicles are part of a planned 100,000 vehicle purchase from the automaker.
