AMT Vehicle Rental invests £200,000 in electric cars
The vehicles cover a Tesla Model S and a number of Nissan LEAFs and will be available at AMT’s Leeds, Manchester Stockport and London locations.
AMT added that it believes it’s the first company to offer the Tesla as a daily, weekly or monthly rental option.
Andy Crinson, general manager of AMT Vehicle Rental, explained: “We are one of the first rental companies in the UK to offer premium electric cars and hybrids with nearly 10% of our fleet now made up of these energy-efficient vehicles, giving customers a wide range of options from an economical city centre run-about like the Leaf to the stylish high performance Tesla sports car.
“This investment comes at a time when we feel the market is sufficiently mature to be able to offer a range of eco-friendly vehicles, and all the cost savings they bring, while still retaining the quality and performance they have come to expect from our range of prestige cars.”
