Europcar to use ZOEs

French car manufacturer Renault has delivered its biggest UK order of electric vehicles (EVs) to date, after agreeing to supply 55 all-electric Renault ZOEs to rental company Europcar for its car hire service throughout major UK cities.

The new Europcar fleet will allow employees to get to and from branches as well as enabling its employees to deliver rental vehicles to customer homes and workplaces without expending any emissions.

The fleet of ZOEs forms part Europcar’s drive to ensure that 5% of its UK vehicles are all-electric by 2020.

Gary Smith, managing director of Europcar UK said, ‘The addition of the Renault ZOEs at many of our city branches enables our employees to get to and from our branches without expending any emissions, making the Deliver & Collect service all the more environmentally friendly.’
