New Citroën Berlingo vans join Europcar fleet

Vehicle hire specialists Europcar have added 100 new Citroën Berlingo vans to its nationwide hire fleet, as well as introducing several Berlingo Electric vans.

The company, part of Europcar Mobility Group UK, says it has been receiving more interest in zero-emission vehicles for ‘last mile’ deliveries and from van fleets operating in low-emission zones.

“The van rental market is changing”, says Martin Gurney, Groupe PSA fleet sales director.

“Organisations that use rental vehicles for extended periods are looking for specification that will enhance their drivers’ safe and comfortable working environment, while private van rental customers expect the comfort and convenience features of a modern car. The Enterprise versions of new Berlingo van give Europcar customers all they could wish for.”

“The commercial vehicle needs of businesses have changed significantly in a very short space of time”, added Stuart Russell, director of commercial hehicles, 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.

“Our customers are at the heart of what we do. We are passionate about listening to the requirements of their businesses and offering them the solutions they need. Features in the new Berlingo van such as air-con and cruise control can make driving a much more pleasant experience. But it’s the rear parking sensors that stand out for me. They don’t cost businesses any extra and can save hundreds of pounds a year, giving drivers a level of safety and security above and beyond what they’re used to.”
