Green Motion Opens First Franchise in Central America

U.K.-based car rental company Green Motion has announced the sale of its first Central American franchise in Costa Rica. The franchise will be run by Toyota Rent a Car, part of the Purdy Motor Group, which has been in the market for 45 years.

“This is another major leap forward for the Green Motion brand and our business,” said Richard Lowden, founder of Green Motion. “We are thrilled that the Toyota Rent a Car has acquired our master franchise for Costa Rica. They have already demonstrated superior levels of customer service and their commitment to the environment is outstanding. I have no doubt whatsoever that they will be an invaluable operational partner for the Green Motion brand.”

According to the company, Green Motion Costa Rica will offer low carbon-dioxide vehicle rentals from eight locations across the country, including Alajuela International Airport and Liberia International Airport. In terms of fleet, due to their relationship with the parent company, Purdy Group, the majority of offered vehicles will be cars and vans from the Toyota and Lexus range, including hybrid vehicles.

 “We feel privileged that we have been awarded with the master rights for the Green Motion brand within Costa Rica,” said Pablo Bogantes, general manager of Green Motion Costa Rica. “Green Motion’s focus on the environment fits very well with our company’s ethos, and we are confident that we will work extremely well side by side.”
