Athlon Car Lease to order electric vehicles from Renault
Last year Athlon Car Lease partnered with Renault and announced their cooperation in the joint delivery of electric vehicle solutions to their mutual clients.
Now the firm has signed a pre-ordering agreement for 65 Kangoo ZEs and 35 Fluence ZEs as the next step in the strategic partnership.
The vehicles will be used to provide Athlon's biggest client, Rabobank – an international financial services provider – with EVs for its fleet.
Hans Blink, president of Athlon Car Lease, said: 'At Athlon Car Lease, we strongly believe that electric vehicles will represent a significant part of the mobility solutions market in the future. Supporting our biggest customer Rabobank to introduce electric vehicles to their fleet is an important first step in stressing our position as a major player in this market.'
Dirk Duijzer, director food & agri and CSR of Rabobank, added: 'Corporate social responsibility is the very basis of our core activities, with lending coming first and foremost. Rabobank Group is committed to creating more sustainability in value chains. We also place a great emphasis on sustainability in our own operations. Therefore we gladly support the initiative of Athlon Car Lease to order electric vehicles from Renault and thus support the innovation in sustainable mobility.'
Commenting on the strategic partnership with Renault, Mr Blink added: 'Our choice to work together with Renault is driven by the competitiveness of their offer and the confidence we have in Renault's global strategy for electric vehicles. Renault’s electric vehicles complement our existing mobility solutions for customers who are concerned about their impact on the environment and aim at decreasing the CO2 emission level of their car fleet.'
