The Cliffs at Princeville on Kauai, Hawaii partners with Envoy Hawaii to provide Tesla Model 3s for resort guests and owners. Using an app, people can reserve the cars by the hour or the day and enjoy the freedom of sustainable transportation without the hassle and expense of traditional car rental services.
The Cliffs at Princeville on Kauai, Hawaii will provide on-site electric car sharing as a resort amenity. The Tesla ʻEVIP’ program is the latest in a series of award-winning sustainability initiatives introduced by The Cliffs, aligned with UN sustainability pillars.
The innovative electric car service—in partnership with Envoy Hawaii—allows resort guests and owners to enjoy sustainable transportation via a simple app. The partnership also represents Envoy’s first foray into Hawaii’s hospitality market, with the delivery of two Tesla Model 3s, with more on the way.
Using the Envoy Mobility app, owners and guests can reserve the cars by the hour or the day and enjoy the freedom of sustainable transportation without the hassle and expense of traditional car rental services.
“It’s firstly a convenience,” said Cliffs General Manager Jim Braman, “but it’s also a premium amenity, allowing our guests to venture out and explore the island in an environmentally friendly ride.”
Tesla charging stations have been installed at The Cliffs, where solar powered suites and Tesla batteries already generate more than 80% of the resort’s energy needs.
“We are forging a new pathway to sustainable travel by partnering with The Cliffs at Princeville,” said Jason Burks, Director of Innovation for Envoy Hawaii.
“EV on-demand car rentals reduce the carbon footprint of visitors at a time when rental car availability and price increases have left travelers scrambling for alternative mobility options,” added Ori Sagie, co-founder and CEO of Envoy Technologies.
For travelers visiting Kauai, The Cliffs at Princeville’s partnership with Envoy Hawaii strategically solves this problem. Creating an electric car share offering for the hospitality industry is a natural progression for Envoy, as it expands from a business originating in multifamily housing and office building sectors.
