Europcar to take 500 electric cars from Renault

Following on from the Memorandum of Understanding on electric vehicles signed last year, Europcar has pre-ordered 500 Renault electric vehicles for delivery from autumn 2011.

Europcar is Renault’s principal short-term rental partner in Europe.

Through a roll-out targeting its rental outlets in Europe’s largest cities, Europcar will offer its customers the new Renault Zero Emission range from 2011 in the European short-term rental market.

“Europcar reaches a decisive point in bringing electric vehicles into the hire market; they will join the eco-friendly fleet that already features on our web sites”, stated Rafael Girona, chief operating officer of Europcar Groupe.

“The interaction between our network and Renault’s technology will genuinely pave the way for a major advance in mobility solutions. With the addition to its fleet of the Renault Fluence Z.E. and Kangoo Z.E. models from 2011 and then of the Zoe Z.E. in 2012, Europcar is demonstrating its environmental commitment set out in its Charter for the Environment”.
