Tesla’s stock soared more than 4% ahead of its launch on Monday, following news that Hertz was ordering 100,000 vehicles to build a select car rental fleet by the end of 2022.
The trading news temporarily brought Tesla stock to market, surpassing a record $949, just a day after the stock hit $900.
Bloomberg previously reported that the deal, which will bring Tesla to $4.2 billion in funding, is the largest electric vehicle purchase ever made.
I could not ask Tesla for comment.
Bloomberg also reported that the car will be delivered within the next 14 months and will be available to some customers in the US and Europe in early November.
More than a year has passed since Hurts filed for bankruptcy protection during a pandemic, and demand for travel and car rentals has plummeted. This year, investors Knighthead Capital Management and Certificate Management have announced that they will be acquiring the company.
