PARK RIDGE, New Jersey — Hertz said it is adding the electric 2013 Tesla Model S to its rental fleet as part of its U.S. Dream Cars line, but the Model S will only be available in San Francisco and Los Angeles to start.

Rental rates are expected to start around $500 a day.

The Tesla Model S joins a growing lineup of Hertz Dream Cars, including the SRT Viper, Bentley Continental GT and Lamborghini Gallardo. Other Dream Cars include the Cadillac CTS-V, Ferrari California and Porsche 911. Hertz also rents the Tesla Roadster.

"The addition of this vehicle shows the passion we have in offering the best and most diverse fleet to our customers," said Mark P. Frissora, Hertz chairman and CEO, in a statement on Wednesday about the Model S.

Dream Car renters will be escorted to the Model S for a personal orientation, according to the Hertz Web site. Delivery to and pickup from the customer's hotel, home or other off-airport location is also available.

Edmunds says: A great idea for Hertz customers who want access to an electric, high-performance sedan. If the move is a success in California, expect the Model S to be available at other locations in the future.
