It’s the largest single car rental ever by Fox Sports, which said the deal also includes two new lines of rental vehicles for Fox, Fox Soccer and Fox Basketball.
The new line includes a 2-seat, 4-seating SUV, a 4-seat SUV with 1,600-plus hours of range and a 5-seated sports utility van, Fox said.
Fox Sports also said it plans to build additional sports utility vehicles in the future.
