CLPe and AVIS Launch Hong Kong’s First Electric Vehicles as a Service to Promote Green Motoring
CLPe and AVIS Hong Kong (AVIS) today announced the launch of Hong Kong's first Electric Vehicles as a Service, a one-stop electric vehicle (EV) rental and charging service that offers cost-effective solutions for businesses to switch to green motoring and help Hong Kong achieve its goal of zero vehicle emissions.
This service combines CLPe's expertise in EV charging with the leading car rental service of AVIS to increase the use of EVs by Hong Kong businesses. With CLPe’s assistance, fleet operators and businesses in industries ranging from logistics to construction can select EVs from AVIS’s wide range of vans and vehicles according to their needs. CLPe will then customise charging solutions and install EV charging facilities.
During the contract period, customers will pay a monthly service fee to CLPe which covers AVIS’s rental fees and EV charging fees, minimising the investment cost, company assets and manpower on electrification. Other benefits include 24-hour support services, insurance, car licence fees, and repairs and maintenance of charging facilities and vehicles. Customers can manage their fleets easily and make adjustments according to their operational needs through a cloud management system and mobile app designed by CLPe which monitors real-time use of charging facilities and the charging status of EVs and provides electricity consumption data.
CLPe Managing Director Mr Alex Keisser said, “Green motoring is a vital part of Hong Kong’s journey to net zero emissions. We are very pleased to partner with AVIS for the launch of Electric Vehicles as a Service, a new and convenient way for EV rental and charging. We will continue to explore and provide all-round energy solutions which meet our customers’ need and promote green motoring to help Hong Kong move towards carbon neutrality.”
AVIS Hong Kong’s Managing Director Ms Connie Tai said, “Vehicle emissions are one of the main sources of air pollution. We are very excited to work with CLPe to provide the one-stop Electric Vehicles as a Service for commercial customers, encouraging businesses to electrify their fleets and achieve zero vehicle emissions through convenient and flexible EV leasing services.”
Environment and Ecology Bureau Principal Assistant Secretary (Air Policy) Dr Kenneth Leung said, “The government has been actively promoting the use of EVs, and support from businesses is equally important. The one-stop EV rental and charging service provided by CLPe and AVIS can encourage more businesses to switch to green motoring and help Hong Kong move towards a green and sustainable future.”
