"It's a different experience. It's undeniably packed with the latest features and innovations that are nothing like any other car," said Virtuo's CEO.

On the other hand, Virtuo confirmed that if you want to rent a Tesla Model 3, it will cost you $96 per day. But, the company said that you can receive a discount if your rent longer. 

The arrival of Tesla Model 3 units to Virtuo's car fleets became possible, thanks to its investors, who released around $60 million.
