Europcar Mobility Group expands EV and PHEV rental choices
Europcar Mobility Group UK is adding a mix of electric and hybrid vehicles across its Professional and Leisure service lines for both short and long-term hire, complementing the MG ZS electric vehicles that came onto fleet in 2020.
The Renault Zoe GT is coming onto the Europcar UK fleet in March. The company is also adding a selection of plug-in hybrids, such as the Citroen C5 PHEV, as well as mild hybrids including the Ford Puma.
Commenting on the company’s environmentally friendly fleet expansion, Ron Santiago, Managing Director, Europcar Mobility Group UK said: “Europcar Mobility Group has a clearly stated mission to have more than a third of its fleet ‘green’ (electric, plug-in hybrids and hybrids) by the end of 2023 as part of its ‘One Sustainable Fleet’ programme. In the UK we have been working closely with our manufacturer partners to identify ways to help us achieve this goal. Last year we introduced the MG ZS electric car to our fleet. Now we’re delighted to add the zero emission Renault Zoe GT as well as the award-winning Ford Puma mild hybrids, all of which will help towards us reaching our ambitious targets of average CO2 reductions across our fleet.
“We are constantly looking at ways in which we can reduce our environmental footprint; just last month we received a gold rating from EcoVadis in recognition of the Group's efforts, particularly in terms of environmental responsibility. We also understand the dilemma many businesses and individuals face in wanting to switch to more environmentally friendly mobility solutions whilst managing the cost.
“By bringing these new fully electric and mild hybrid models onto our fleet we believe we can help businesses and individuals reach their own sustainability goals in a cost-effective way.”
