Hitachi Capital adds Vauxhall Ampera to its pool fleet

Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions has taken delivery of the Vauxhall Ampera for its car fleet. The leasing company was one of the first in the UK to order the Ampera, recently voted European Car of the Year 2012, as part of its on-going support and commitment to EV technology.

Hitachi Capital will use the vehicle as a pool car from its sites in Trowbridge, Newbury and Leicester. It will also be used for businesses to trial, as more of Hitachi Capital’s customers have shown a keen interest in EVs and alternative fuels.

"At Hitachi Capital we are always looking to lower our carbon emissions and increase our knowledge of EVs and the Ampera is helping us to accomplish this. This new purchase will be a helpful learning curve for the business, its employees and for our customers further expanding our knowledge and ownership of electric vehicles in the market place," says Chris Shore, pricing manager at Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions.
