ePowerTrucks launches short-term EV hire deal

ePowerTrucks is offering Club Car low-speed passenger vehicles on leases measured in days rather than weeks,  aimed to help more companies become familiar and comfortable with EVs, while also filling a market niche.

Jerry Hanss, managing director of ePowerTrucks, said: “This initiative will create in-roads into a broader range of sectors, meeting the requirements of businesses looking for short-term leases for particular events, projects or timescales.

“We have already identified demand for Club Car’s products within our customer base. The increased flexibility of being able to offer short-term hire schemes opens up additional possibilities and opportunities for an even wider range of individuals and organisations.”

The hire fleet already consists of ten Villager passenger vehicles. The Villager series has an aircraft-specification aluminium chassis and can comfortably carry two people up to 30 miles on a single charge. Capable of operating indoors or outside, the vehicles are designed for applications including golf courses, airports, university campuses, business parks and leisure facilities.

Hanss added: “From year to year, we look to consistently improve ePowerTrucks’ offering of electric powered vehicles – and Club Car provides the perfect fit. Its Carryall range is lighter than our other utility vehicles and its Villager products can offer a multitude of valuable add-ons and options.

“Club Car has a strong brand and a good reputation. This echoes ePowerTrucks’ company ethos, as we strive to supply the broadest range of electric vehicles available in the UK. We pride ourselves on delivering the right for a specific customer’s applications. Adding Club Car to our portfolio will help us continue to do so.”
