EUROPCAR Vans and Trucks has expanded of its van and specialist vehicle fleet with additional models from Volkswagen and Nissan.

Responding to continued high demand, largely due to increased activity in the logistics, construction and building maintenance sectors, Europcar Vans and Trucks has been working closely with its manufacturer partners to bring brand new models onto its fleet. These include the new VW Caddy Cargo SWB Commerce, making Europcar the first rental provider to add this model to its fleet.

A compact van which meets Euro 6 emissions standards and RDE 2 regulations, making it suitable for the ultra-low emission zones springing up around the UK, the VW Caddy Cargo SWB Commerce comes with the latest driver assistance systems and is capable of transporting up to 700kg, including up to 100kg on the roof.

Europcar Van and Trucks has already added new Caddy Cargo vans to its fleet, accessible from the company’s 12 Van and Trucks Supersites at key locations around the UK, with more being phased in each month until the end of the year.

Europcar is also re-introducing the Nissan NV250 Panel Van Acenta – last seen on fleet in 2015 – with new models that come in two different body lengths (L1 & L2) as well as having all the latest safety systems.

David Saint, Van and Truck Director UK, Europcar Mobility Group UK.  “As increased business confidence returns to many industries across the country, we are seeing increased demand from businesses that need quick and cost-effective access to the latest and most technologically advanced vans and specialist vehicles.

“We are therefore extending our LCV fleet, working closely with our manufacturer partners. In particular we are aiming to make long-term rental a viable solution for companies that face fluctuations in demand.  Rather than committing to lengthy lease agreements with onerous termination penalties, Europcar Flex offers a cost-effective, flexible solution for van users.”

Extra customer demand, particularly in the logistics sector, or the extra workload faced by building maintenance and construction companies due to additional infrastructure and refurbishment projects, means that many businesses will need interim vehicles to help them through a busy period but they don’t want to be burdened with the ongoing cost of buying a vehicle outright.
