Following the Electric Vehicle partnership announced in February 2010, Avis has signed a pre-order for 500 Electric Vehicles from Renault.
Avis customers will be able to hire Renault Fluence ZE and Renault Kangoo Express ZE in 7 countries from the end of 2011.
Avis will offer its customers the chance to experience driving an electric vehicle for hire in the following countries: France, Spain, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Belgium, and Portugal.
Renault has just revealed the first two production models of its electric vehicle range: Kangoo Express ZE, an electric light commercial vehicle, and Fluence ZE, an electric family sedan.
Renault’s range of electric vehicles will later be extended by two new cars, exclusively designed for electrical power.
The Renault electric vehicles join Avis’s already extensive eco mobility offering. Each car on the Avis fleet is typically only six months old, to ensure maximum fuel efficiency, whilst the average CO2 emissions for cars purchased in 2009 was just 144.6g CO2/Km.
