At Carrefour, it was until now possible to rent Fiat 500s, Renault Scénics and utility vehicles. From the end of June, the retail brand will enrich its catalog with the arrival of Tesla Model 3 and Model Y. By the start of the school year, around a hundred vehicles will be deployed in nearly 80 hypermarkets and supermarkets in teaches it.
“We chose Tesla because it is the trendy electric manufacturer of the moment”, explains a spokesperson for Carrefour, recalling that the brand already offered electric vehicles on occasion, in particular Renault Zoé. The daily rental price will range between 119 and 149 euros – depending on the model and the period – for a maximum mileage of 150 km. A promotional offer valid in around thirty centers until the end of July will allow you to take advantage of a Tesla for only 59 euros a day.
To rent a Tesla from Carrefour, you will have to meet a few conditions: be at least 21 years old and return the vehicle with the same level of charge as at the start. A time constraint but no cost since Carrefour specifies that the price of Tesla’s fast terminals (superchargers) will be included in the rental.

Jean-Michel Jarre works with Renault
After Oxygène and Equinoxe, the next music by Jean-Michel Jarre will find its place in future Renault models. The manufacturer and the French artist have signed a three-year partnership aimed at developing Renault’s sound identity for its electric models. This will range from the welcome sound when the vehicle is unlocked, to the sound emitted to warn pedestrians when the vehicle is traveling at low speed.
Jean-Michel Jarre will also work on the development of a new generation audio system and the development of an algorithm capable of adapting the sound environment in the vehicle according to the type of road and the musical tastes of the driver. You can not stop progress.
