Europcar adds Peugeot iOns to UK Fleet
This follows the announcement of Europcar’s global partnership with PSA Peugeot Citroen last October and responds to increasing demand for access to electric vehicles to rent.
Providing travellers arriving at several of London’s airports and heading into the Capital with a congestion-charge-free option, Peugeot iOns are available at Europcar’s Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airport locations. Vehicles are also available from the company’s King’s Cross and Marble Arch branches.
Ken McCall, managing director, Europcar Group UK, said: ’This is a tremendously exciting initiative for us. Demand for electric vehicles to rent is really starting to pick up as both businesses and leisure drivers want to make the most of both the environmental and cost advantages.
‘Demonstrating the fact that we are listening to our customers’ constantly evolving needs, Europcar is the first UK rental provider to add the new Peugeot iOns to its fleet. This also reflects our core commitments to sustainable development and technological innovation.’
‘The first new-generation electric vehicle to hit the European market, the Peugeot iOn is silent and will not emit any CO2 or other pollutants, further enhancing its ecological benefits. It is also exempt from congestion charges in key UK cities providing important cost advantages for business users.
‘Our goal is to give our customers the widest possible choice. That includes giving them access to the new generation of electric vehicles. Ideal for short city journeys we anticipate these will be immensely popular with many of our business customers who will really relish the cost savings they offer.’
