PUTTING BUSINESSES IN THE ELECTRIC DRIVING SEAT
Decarbonisation is now on the agenda of most businesses, with fleet users facing pressure to lead the charge into cleaner, greener mobility. But this is a mammoth task when vehicle supply is limited, overall fleet operating costs are spiralling and the true effect of electric motoring – on drivers and their businesses – is an unknown. 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 adding electric to their fleet. What’s needed is real-world experience before making the big move.

Try before you buy
Addressing this challenge, Europcar’s Long-Term Solutions give businesses and their drivers the chance to experience electric in real-world conditions before committing to lease or outright purchase. Before making big fleet decisions – that will have big financial implications – it makes sense to ‘test’ every aspect of zero emissions motoring and Europcar is aiming to help businesses on the journey. It makes complete sense. Every aspect of electric mobility can be tested; businesses can even switch between different vehicle types to understand what’s the right fit for their operations. Available for a minimum of 3 months with no upfront deposit and commitment free, the Europcar Long-Term solution when you select an EV includes:
● Comprehensive vehicle handover and charging instructions support
● Charging cables
● Shell Recharge card and app – providing access to over 10,000 publicly accessible charge points across the UK
● Access to Tesla Superchargers for Tesla rentals
● The option for CO2 reporting for valuable insight into emissions reduction
Plus, through its partnership with Shell Recharge Solutions, Europcar is offering a range of home, roadside and workplace charging solutions.
One size doesn’t fit all
Europcar is adding vehicles that span the majority of business motoring use cases to give fleet managers the chance to genuinely put low and zero emission motoring to the test, all available as part of the Europcar long-term rental solutions. The latest additions include several hundred Tesla Model 3 for long-term business rental. The LEVC van and Mercedes-Benz e-Vito have also been added to the commercial fleet with the Mercedes-Benz eVito van available for short demo test-drives on request.
Charged for the future
The continued addition of new electric models to the UK fleet underpins the Europcar ‘One Sustainable Fleet’ programme which aims to have 20% of vehicles in fleet emitting less than 50g CO2 / km by the end of 2024. The Europcar branch network is also rapidly being charged up for the future, with plans to expand the infrastructure to locations in key business locations by the end of 2022
