Northern Ireland Renault dealer Charles Hurst has invested £600,000 in a fleet of Zoe electric company cars for its staff.
A total of 20 employees at the company have opted for the Zoe which comes with an eight-year battery warranty.
Charles Hurst Renault is also currently offering free installation of a home wall charger for customers who purchase a Zoe.
Terry Murray, Charles Hurst Renault fleet manager, said, “As Northern Ireland’s largest new and used car group, we’re proud to be championing the move to environmentally friendly vehicles as part of our ongoing commitment to sustainability initiatives. Charles Hurst’s significant investment in electric vehicles is a progressive and positive step towards reaching our environmental goals.
“We recognise our role in helping to protect the environment for future generations and as a business, we are continually looking for new ways to improve our sustainability objective and the investment into Renault Zoe allows us to considerably reduce our carbon footprint.
“With a range of up to 245 miles the Zoe is perfect for daily commutes and long trips, offering peace of mind and the ability to enjoy all the benefits of the switch to an electric vehicle.
“We know that the Renault Zoe is a fantastic car for both our staff and customers, and here at Charles Hurst Renault we look forward to helping our customers enjoy the benefits that driving a 100% electric vehicle brings.”
The new Renault Zoe van is also now available, which is the UK’s only 100% electric car-derived commercial vehicle.
