Official car hire partner goes green for Davis Cup Quarter Final at The Queen’s Club
Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe, continues to keep tennis players and officials on the move as part of its exclusive partnership with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). The company is supplying cars for the Davis Cup by BNP Paribas Quarter Final tie at the prestigious Queen’s Club which starts later this week (17th-19th July 2015).
With a focus on the clean air ambitions of London, the Europcar fleet for the Davis Cup tie will include a convoy of Nissan LEAF electric cars, as well as eight Mercedes E Class Estate cars which feature the latest advantages in low emissions technology.
“It is an honour to be able to play a key role in the LTA’s summer tournaments, providing essential transport solutions,” says Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar UK Group. “The next event on this exciting programme of world-class tennis is the Davis Cup, which sees Great Britain take on last year’s finalists, France, at the Queen’s Club. Our Nissan LEAF display car on-site is splashed with the flags of both nations to cheer on the teams either side of the Channel. And, crucially, the electric vehicles on Europcar’s Davis Cup fleet are perfectly aligned to the Mayor of London’s Electric Vehicle Delivery Plan.
“The Queen’s Club in West London, plays host to this year’s Quarter Final, which promises a clash of the titans for fans. Europcar will be working hard behind the scenes to ensure players and officials are where they need to be, working with the LTA to put on a flawless event.”
“Europcar’s reputation for premium customer care, combined with quality vehicles, including the latest electric vehicle technology, makes it the perfect partner for us” added James Mercer, the LTA Commercial Director. “We know that our transport for players and officials is in safe hands, leaving the LTA team free to focus on delivering a great event for tennis fans.”
