GO Rentals are committed to doing their bit towards pioneering sustainable tourism
in New Zealand. The Kiwi owned company is setting the benchmark within the
rental car industry, in the hopes to see change.
James Dalglish, Chief Operating Officer, GO Rentals says they are thrilled to be adding more
environmentally friendly EV’s with the addition of a fleet of BYD ATTO 3’s, available only at
GO Rentals Auckland Airport and Auckland City branches.
‘’We are pleased to be expanding our EV options of how locals and International visitors
can enjoy traveling around the country, the BYD ATTO 3 is sensational, cost effective,
compact model to offer our eco conscious customers at a very affordable price point.’’
‘’As a company within the travel and tourism industry introducing more sustainable
options is a crucial step forward within the car rental sector. We are proud to help
minimise impacts on future travel, paving the way for generations to come.
There are also plenty of advantages in opting for an EV, you save money as you don’t need
to pay for petrol, you don’t have to fill it up with gas on return and of course you’re helping
to reduce CO2 emissions.’’ Says Dalglish.
The environmental benefits behind EV uptake can’t be challenged. *”An EV used in
Aotearoa emits about 60% fewer emissions over its full life cycle than an equivalent petrol
vehicle. This is the case even when accounting for emissions from raw material extraction,
manufacture, and shipping. This figure will improve as Aotearoa phases out fossil fuels in
electricity generation and as global efforts decrease emissions from EV supply chains.” —
