Europcar goes electric with Peugeot iOns

Europcar is reinforcing its commitment to the environment by being the first UK rental provider to add the new Peugeot iOn to its fleet.

This follows the announcement of Europcar’s global partnership with PSA Peugeot Citroen last October.

Providing travellers arriving at several of London’s airports and heading into the Capital with a congestion-charge-free option, Peugeot iOns are available at Europcar’s Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airport locations.

Vehicles are also available from the company’s King’s Cross location.

“This is a tremendously exciting initiative for us,” said Ken McCall, managing director, Europcar Group UK.

“Demand for electric vehicles to rent is really starting to pick up as both businesses and leisure drivers want to make the most of both the environmental and cost advantages.

Initially, the vehicles will be available for one day hire only, in order to ensure they are properly recharged, and can only be returned to the Europcar locations designated for electric vehicles - Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports, Kings Cross and Marble Arch.
