Sustainable is a byword thrown around a lot today, but for EV Rides, it’s at the core of who we are. We truly believe in the transition to sustainable energy, and we also happen to think that it can be a blast at the same time. That’s why we specialize in only electric vehicle rentals. We’re the experts on the subject, so when you rent from us, we’re here to answer your questions and provide the vehicle support you need.
History of EV Rides
Michael Aschenbrener founded EV Rides in Denver, Colorado, in 2019 after he rented out his first Tesla, a 2012 Tesla Model S 85 named “Monty” on a P2P carsharing platform. With a VIN under 2,000, it was one of the first Model Ses to leave the Fremont factory; it was black/black with lacewood trim, professional chrome-delete, and tint. What an awesome car! Rather than trading in Monty when he decided to take delivery of a new Tesla, he listed Monty for rent. It rented right away. “Hmm, this is interesting,” he thought, and the rest is history.
The Lightbulb Moment
By the end of summer 2019, Michael’s family actually had to rent a car for themselves because both of theirs were rented, leaving them with no vehicle to take the kids to school, sports, and other activities. After the second time in three weeks that they needed to rent a vehicle, the proverbial light bulb went off: this could be a real business.
Formation of EV Rides
In late September 2019, Michael officially formed EV Rides. The very next day, he took delivery of the first company vehicle, a blue/white Model 3 LR AWD named “Stormfly” (Michael's kids were very much into the “How to Train Your Dragon” movies at the time). Throughout the fall and winter of 2019, EV Rides took delivery of more Model 3s and its first handful of Model Xes.
EV Rides started 2020 with a running start and grew quickly — until the pandemic brought its reign of terror to the world in March 2020. They weathered the storm, though, and began adding vehicles again in July 2020.
After growing steadily throughout 2021, EV Rides is poised for even greater growth. We are adding more vehicles to the fleet all the time, including brands beyond Tesla. We plan to open more locations throughout Colorado in 2022 with an eye on expanding beyond Colorado in the future. We are also adding new programs, like a rideshare program in partnership with HyreCar. Our goal is to become the world’s largest all-EV rental car company — it’s what we can do to make business and leisure travel sustainable.
