Green Motion Franchise Overview
About Green Motion
Established in 2007 by UK entrepreneur Richard Lowden, Green Motion Car and Van hire offers its customers - both leisure and business - the opportunity to enjoy great value vehicle rental, while helping to reduce the impact of global CO2 emissions associated with road travel. Green Motion International now offers its award winning, low cost and environmentally responsible service in more than 30 countries. The company marked its 10th anniversary of successful operation in 2017, servicing close to 850,000 reservations across the 400 locations within its global network.
In 2005, Richard Lowden, the founder and chairman of Green Motion vehicle rental, reacted to the global need to take genuine and positive action to play a part in reducing the effects of climate change and set about creating what is now the world’s first vehicle rental company which is kinder to the environment. The concept of the organisation was very simple - to give its customers, both leisure/retail and business, the choice and opportunity to rent greener vehicles, thus reducing their CO2 emissions while benefiting from greater and improved fuel economy. In developing Green Motion, he identified a real niche in the vehicle hire and rent-a-car market to provide a greener alternative to customers. The original operations commenced trading in 2007 in the United Kingdom and despite the incredibly tough economic climate that prevailed, the Green Motion brand enjoyed excellent growth with it becoming a top 10 rental operation within the UK and Northern Ireland. In January 2011, Green Motion saw the opening of its first overseas Master Country Franchise in Mexico. Green Motion is currently present in 30 countries.
