Europcar broadens EV options

Europcar Mobility Group UK has increased the number of electric vehicles on offer within its mobility solutions.

The latest additions include an order for several hundred Tesla Model 3 for long-term business rental and a number of Mercedes-Benz EQB 350 SUV models, initially available from Heathrow Airport.

Ron Santiago, managing director, Europcar Mobility Group UK, said: “Before making fleet decisions – that will have big financial implications – it makes sense to ‘test’ every aspect of electric mobility. But a short test-drive, even if it’s for a week or more, doesn’t really deliver the insight businesses need to understand the true impact of using an EV.

“The Europcar long-term rental solution tackles this challenge and our plan to add models across different price points gives fleet managers more choice to find the right fit for their business.”

Available for a minimum of three months, the long-term rental solution includes comprehensive vehicle handover and charging instructions support, charging cables, the Shell Recharge card and app, and access to Tesla Superchargers for Tesla rentals

Santiago said: “The continued addition of new electric models to the Europcar UK fleet underpins our ‘One Sustainable Fleet’ programme which aims to have at least 20% of our vehicles emitting less than 50g CO2 / km by the end of 2024. The rapid upgrade of the Europcar branch network with charging posts further supports this goal.”
