The announcement came after two companies signed the Memorandum of Understanding on electric vehicles at the Frankfurt International Motor Show last September.
Europcar, Renault’s principal short-term rental partner in Europe, has given substance to the partnership agreement signed with Renault at the recent Frankfurt Motor Show to promote zero-emission mobility solutions.
Through a roll-out targeting its rental outlets in Europe’s largest cities, Europcar is set to offer its customers the new Renault Zero-Emission (Z.E.) range from 2011 in the European short-term rental market.
With electric cars, which produce zero emissions during use, Renault is preparing a breakthrough solution that provides sustainable mobility for all. The four show-cars displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show – Twizy Z.E. Concept, Zoë Z.E. Concept, Fluence Z.E. Concept and Kangoo Z.E. Concept – preview the electric vehicle range that will be launched in 2011 with three models:
– Fluence Z.E. – a family four-door saloon
– Twizy Z.E. – a small city car
– Kangoo Van Z.E. – a light commercial vehicle for fleets and business users
They will be followed in 2012 by Zoë Z.E. – a compact 4-meter 5-seater supermini. After 2012, the Z.E. range will continue to expand into all segments to meet the needs of a diverse range of customers.
