Europcar appoints CBVC to manage company car fleet


Europcar Mobility Group UK has appointed CBVC Vehicle Management to manage its company car fleet.

The new agreement reflects Europcar’s ‘One Sustainable Fleet’ programme, which aims to reduce fleet emissions each year.

It will also support the company’s plans by encouraging staff take-up of electric vehicles (EVs), as well as helping reduce benefit-in-kind (BIK) taxation.

Ron Santiago, managing director of Europcar Mobility Group UK, said: "Europcar Mobility Group has a clear aim to reduce emissions across the entire fleet and that has to include the company car vehicles we offer to our employees.

"In the UK we are supporting that mission by working with CBVC, which has worked hard with us over recent months to produce and deliver whole life cost-based choice lists benefiting both the company and our company car drivers."

Europcar Mobility Group UK operates from over 120 locations in the UK offering its business and leisure customers a choice of petrol, diesel and electric cars and vans.

Recognising that the vehicles it offers to its own employees are an important part of its carbon reduction plans, it is working with CBVC to enhance its own company car scheme.

Through the CBVC Driver Vehicle Selection Portal, Europcar Mobility Group UK employees that opt for electric will be able to trade up to the next grade of vehicle.

Furthermore, cash allowance drivers wanting to capitalise on ultra-low BIK EVs will be able to opt back into the company car scheme.

Crucially, says Europcar, CBVC is using whole life costs to generate multi-brand vehicle lists, with its expertise not only helping employees to go electric, but its multi-bid acquisition and enhanced levels of service also delivering lower costs for the Europcar business.

Mike Manners, managing director of CBVC Vehicle Management, said: "We have been clients of Europcar Mobility Group UK for some considerable time through our rapidly expanding rental business, and it’s a great accolade for us to be awarded the contract to supply and manage its company car fleet.

"We have been working with many clients to reduce CO2 emissions and our technology incorporating video review and trade up option is really quick, informative and straightforward to use.

"Early orders from Europcar Mobility Group UK employees are showing a 90% take-up rate, so we are feeling confident that we will be able to deliver significant CO2 reductions across the company car fleet."

CBVC will oversee ongoing maintenance management of the Europcar Mobility Group UK company car fleet, including managing the current legacy vehicles to the end of contract, as well as the company’s grey fleet cash allowance drivers.
