Prepare Yourself For The Tesla Model S - Now At MPG Car Rental

LOS ANGELES, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In recent years, the public mindset on hybrid vehicles has gone through a dramatic evolution, and electric vehicles have gone from novelty item to a fixture of our increasingly energy-conscious culture. For Los Angeles commuters, the rapid growth of the green revolution has never more evident than through the extensive eco-friendly fleet available at MPG Car Rental. This spring, Southern California's premier facility for hybrid rental cars has become even more impressive as they debut their most impressive vehicle to date – the Tesla Model S.

One look at the sporty new sedan by Tesla Motors makes it clear the days of bulky, sluggish electric-hybrid vehicles are long behind us. The sleek exterior has been said to rival that of high-end luxury BMWs. In fact, even the most difficult critics have been effusive in their praise of the car's powerful electric motor. A masterpiece of design, the motor propels the vehicle at a rate of 60 mph in 5.4 seconds, and it does so while remaining cleaner than any traditional hybrid vehicle as it doesn't emit any exhaust. Despite its revolutionary power, the Tesla Model S hasn't sacrificed distance driving range at all, as the car has been shown to travel as far as 265 miles without need of a recharge. With so many incredible features, it's no surprise it won the 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year.

For long-time patrons of MPG Car Rental, the inclusion of the Tesla Model S will seem like a logical extension of the company's already sterling fleet of green, eco-friendly vehicles. The team at MPG Car Rental has set themselves well above the competition by offering tried-and-true hybrids including three models of Prius as well as more surprising options like their various TDi rental choices. TDi refers to Turbocharged Direct Injection, an incredibly efficient engine design developed and produced by Volkswagen. At MPG Car Rental you'll find VW Jetta TDi rentals including the Jetta TDi Wagen, and for those drivers who want to show off their eco-conscious mindset as well as their retro sense of style, even a VW Beetle TDi.

In Southern California's commuter culture, the need for sustainable, eco-friendly driving options is an absolute necessity. As a pioneer in energy-efficient driving, MPG Car Rental is ensuring that drivers don't need to sacrifice an ounce of speed, comfort or style while making the responsible choice for both the planet and the pocketbook. Whether you choose a classic Prius, an elegant Volkswagen TDi, or the masterful Tesla Model S, you'll find the right hybrid car rental for you among the fleet at MPG Car Rental.
