Athlon Car Lease has signed a pre-ordering agreement with Renault for 100 electric vehicles this week.
Athlon Car Lease is thus the first international full operational car leasing and mobility provider to order electric vehicles from Renault and to provide Rabobank, an international financial services provider, with electric cars for their fleet.
Already in 2009, Athlon Car Lease has partnered with Renault and announced their cooperation in the joint delivery of electric vehicle solutions to their mutual clients. Signing the pre-ordering agreement for 100 Fluence ZEs is thus the first step to continue the strategic partnership.
Earlier this year, Renault has revealed the first two production models of its electric vehicle range: Kangoo Express ZE, a light commercial vehicle, and Fluence ZE, a family sedan.
The French automaker will later add the Renault Twizy, a nimble and practical electric vehicle for city motoring (2 seats – 4 wheels) and Renault ZOE, a compact and flexible hatchback for everyday use to its range of electric vehicles.
