Europcar Mobility Group U.K. is adding 100 Citroën Berlingo Electric vans into its fleet due to increasing interest in zero-emission vehicles for last mile deliveries and van fleets in areas of the United Kingdom.
The introduction of the electric vans is aimed to support fleets operating in low-emission zones, according to Citroën. The fleet will aid customers operating in areas such as the London Congestion Charge zone.
The Citroën Berlingo Electric will qualify for a 100% discount when the new London Ultra-Low Emission Zone comes into force in April 2019, the automaker said in a release.
"The commercial vehicle needs of businesses have changed significantly in a very short space of time", said Stuart Russell, director of commercial vehicles, Europcar Mobility Group UK. "There’s a high focus on driver efficiency – particularly in relation to deliveries, but also in respect of the day to day job while on the road.
Europcar is also introducing standard Citroën Berlingo Van Enterprise models to enhance its van fleet, according to a release. Standard features include air conditioning, rear parking sensors, cruise control, speed limiter, automatic electronic parking brake, alarm, one-touch electric windows, heated and electrically-operated folding door mirrors, front fog lights with cornering function and tire pressure monitoring.
