Carrefour has bought 6,500 Tesla cars, Model 3s and Model Ys, which you can rent from June 16. The prices are very competitive, enough to please those who want to try the Tesla experience.
It is complicated to buy an electric car in 2022, even more so a Tesla. The American brand displays long delays, sometimes more than a year, which lengthen as time goes by. The cause of these setbacks and these expectations is obviously the global context which leads to shortages and price increases. If you are in a hurry, or simply to test, Carrefour has just launched a Tesla rental offer.
Carrefour Location will add Model 3 and Model Y to its catalog. You will be able to find them from June 16 in around thirty Carrefour Locations, and more than 80 rental locations in September.
