Europcar Mobility Group UK has become the exclusive rental partner of The EV Café, the electric vehicle community that was borne out of the Covid-19 pandemic and has now grown to more than 16,000 followers. Designed to dispel the myths about electric motoring, The EV Café holds regular podcasts and broadcasts video interviews to tackle the Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt that is a key barrier to low and zero emissions motoring. It also attends EV events throughout the year, giving businesses and individuals the chance to ask the big questions they have about electric motoring.
As a Gold partner, alongside the AA and PlugMeIn, Europcar will participate in a number of EV Café events, podcasts and videos across 2024. The mobility provider will also showcase The EV Café subject matter experts through its own platforms.
As Mark Newberry, Commercial Director and Sustainability spokesperson at Europcar Mobility Group UK (pictured, left) explained, the partnership is another important component in the company’s growing toolkit of support for businesses and individuals thinking about switching to electric. “The EV Café has established a great reputation for delivering impartial, informed content that helps motorists make up their own minds about low and zero emissions motoring.
“We are particularly excited by the enthusiasm the team shows for getting the message out about electric motoring. We know that businesses have numerous barriers to making the switch, not least of which a lack of knowledge about the real impact of EV on operations. We therefore see our partnership with The EV Café as a crucial way to deliver insight that has no commercial agenda.”
John Curtis, co-founder of The EV Café added: “Transport is key to combatting climate change. Our mission is to accelerate the transition to electric or zero emission vehicles, with a clear focus on every sector of the market, from commercial and passenger transport to new technologies and movements.
‘…a great solution to ‘try out’ electric before taking the plunge.’
“Our regular podcasts, videos and events bring experts to the table to help those that rely on effective transportation understand everything about electric motoring. And we look forward to welcoming members of the Europcar team, providing a great solution to ‘try out’ electric before taking the plunge as well as helping motorists and businesses understand where vehicle usership rather than ownership could deliver a long-term sustainable transport solution.”
