The partnership will add to Avis’ already well-established environmental program, which has seen the company maintain a CarbonNeutral status since 1999. Each car in the Avis Europe fleet is typically only six months old, to ensure maximum fuel efficiency and the average CO2 emissions for cars purchased in 2009 was 144.6 g CO2/km.
With electric cars, which produce zero emissions during use, Renault is preparing a breakthrough solution that provides sustainable mobility for all.
These include two derivatives of internal-combustion vehicles:
– Renault Fluence Z.E., an electric version of Fluence.
– Renault Kangoo Express Z.E., an electric version of Renault Kangoo Express, intended primarily for fleet and business use.
The range of electric vehicles will later be extended to cover other segments, including two new cars whose architecture will be designed to run exclusively with electrical power:
– A car derived from the Twizy Z.E. Concept for motoring in built-up areas.
– The fourth vehicle will take its inspiration from Zoe Z.E. Concept and is scheduled to be released at the beginning of 2012. It will be a particularly versatile vehicle intended for everyday motoring in and around cities.
