As reported in IVC: The leasing company will market hundreds of Renault Fluence ZE electric cars to its customers in 2012

Better Place LLC has signed an agreement with Israeli car leasing company Albar Ltd. to market hundreds of Renault Fluence ZE electric cars to its leasing customers in 2012. The customers will sign road service contracts with Better Place.

Albar will begin marketing the Fluence ZE to business and private leasing customers in the coming months, ahead of the car’s arrival in Israel. Customers can opt for a lease operating services contract with Albar and sign a separate contact with Better Place for its services package.

A Better Place subscription includes an annual quota of kilometers at a fixed monthly rate, a home recharging point, free and unlimited access to public recharging points, unlimited battery replacement, an online driver support system, and 24-hour customer call service.

Albar CEO Yanun Amit said that Albar was the first leasing company to sign up with Better Place in Israel.

Better Place CEO Moshe Kaplinski said that the agreement with Albar enables private customers to lease electric cars. “I expect strong demand from the companies that have already signed agreements with us, and which have expressed a wish to switch to electric cars. I am pleased that Albar was the first company to spot the opportunity.”
