Published: June 29, 2022, 10:05Europcar is the leading supplier in Sweden of shared sustainable mobility, with the highest proportion of electrified cars. But it is not just about rental cars, but Europcar wants to offer different types of mobility in the future. In 2022, the company presented both VW California, a motorhome that can be driven on HVO100, but also a beta test on SEAT MÓ which is an electric motorcycle, so-called micro-mobility. – 40 percent of our vehicle fleet is electrified and we aim to have 100 percent fossil-free vehicle fleet by 2025. Our vision is to be able to offer a spectrum of mobility solutions, a multimodal platform with offers that make it easier for people to move in a sustainable way in society, says Cathrin Idén Chief Commercial Officer at Europcar.Sustainable mobility from north to southAs the leading provider of mobility solutions, Europcar operates throughout the country, from Kiruna in the north to Trelleborg in the south. Rechargeable electric cars can be rented everywhere, not only in big cities but throughout Sweden. – In addition to high availability and availability of cars, we have a high utilization of our vehicles. The average mileage of privately owned cars in Sweden is about 1100 km per year, but our cars roll three times as far, says Mickael Bogered, CEO of Europcar Sweden.The car, the fuel and the behaviorEuropcar wants to challenge the norm in terms of sustainability and has, among other things, three key words in its work; the car, the fuel and the behavior. For Europcar, sustainability is important and by buying rechargeable cars and renting them out, privately owned cars can be replaced. A large part of the work is also about creating an awareness among customers how they can act sustainably. – We usually talk about the car, the fuel and the behavior. Regarding the car, it is important to challenge the norm, why should you, for example, ride in a large station wagon yourself? Maybe it is possible to instead travel large parts of their transport needs in a smaller car and when it is time for the mountains or summer vacation, you can rent a larger, more spacious car from us. Rent the car you need when you need it, says Mickael Bogered. – In the fuel is our strategy to electrify Sweden. We have a large selection of clean electric cars, electric transport cars and SEAT MÓ125 electric motorcycles. Thus, we offer a larger range than any other mobility provider. Then when it comes to behavior, it's about what you choose for mobility solution. Is the car really needed for all distances? Maybe it is better to use an electrified motorcycle in certain situations? If you as a customer choose car mobility, how much consumption can be affected by your own behavior, says Cathrin Idén. More shared cars means fewer cars on the roadsEuropcar sees itself as an important part of society, with a strong will to contribute to sustainable societal development. To be able to combine different sustainable mobility solutions. It is about bicycles, public transport and electric cars when the need arises. But also to get companies to think about their mobility needs. – With more shared cars, there will be fewer cars. Instead of company cars, companies can instead rent from us at their peaks and thus be able to load balance their own business. We look at car pools for companies that can also be used by the public, Cathrin Idén concludes.More information about EuropcarEuropcar believes that the path to sustainable mobility is achieved through increased electrification, increased sharing and offering vehicles matched to current needs.
