The Premier League club recently took delivery of a pair of C-Zero models, Citroën’s 100% electric city car, adding to the existing vehicle fleet that Citroën provides as Official Car Supplier to Arsenal.
To take delivery of the models was Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger and first team players Thomas Vermaelen, Kieran Gibbs and Olivier Giroud.
Vinai Venkatesham, head of global partnerships at Arsenal Football Club commented: “Arsenal is committed to being a more environmentally friendly organisation and working with our partners to improve our overall efficiency. With the introduction of electric power to our fleet of already-efficient Citroëns, journeys such as those between Emirates Stadium and our Training Ground can be fulfilled with minimal environmental impact whilst enabling tangible cost savings.”
Marc Raven, communications director at Citroën UK, said: “Our C-Zero continues to prove that electric cars can deliver a practical and efficient response to daily driver requirements. By introducing two models into its fleet, Arsenal is demonstrating that electric power can fulfil a progressive business’ objectives - increasing efficiency whilst reducing environmental impact. A win-win situation for one of the UK’s most progressive football organisations.”
