Europcar has teamed up with Nissan to market and promote the use of electric vehicles.

 The new partnership means motorists in Australia and New Zealand will be able to rent an electricity powered vehicle from selected Europcar outlets as early as 2010.

The availability of electric vehicles in Europcars Australasian sector is set to follow the roll out of the cars across the companys global fleet in France, Germany, Belgium, Spain, Italy, Portugal and the United Kingdom. This is to be extended to other countries in due time.

Group Marketing Manager Europcar Australia and New Zealand Ashley Jurberg said the new agreement was an exciting step forward in zero emission motoring which would ultimately provide Europcar customers with more options for greener road travel.

This will give our customers the means to significantly reduce their carbon emissions when they rent a vehicle from us, Mr Jurberg said. According to the Federal Government the transport sector currently contributes 14% of Australias total greenhouse gas emissions.

The partnership between Europcar and Nissan will deliver new standards in eco-motoring for companies and individuals who want to actively reduce these emission levels.
