 National Car Rental has confirmed a two year UK and pan-European deal with DaimlerChrysler, bringing a full range of Mercedes-Benz vehicles to the fleet. The new agreement ensures National continues to stay at the forefront of the industry in terms of the quality and scope of its fleet.

The two year deal will offer customers an outstanding level of choice. The A--Class hatchback, the B-Class multi-activity vehicle, C-Class and E-Class Estate all offer roomy luxury. For performance on all terrains, National customers have access to the M--Class luxury off-roader. And for the ultimate in elegance and performance, the S-Class Saloon, CLK-, SLK- and CLS-Class models will also be available. The Mercedes range will be joining the National fleet in the UK, Germany and Switzerland, as well as the Guy Salmon Prestige Rental fleet in the UK.

Tim Bailey, National Car Rental Vice President Fleet, comments: "This is a key deal for us, allowing us to provide our customers with a fleet of the latest and most desirable vehicles on the road. Mercedes-Benz stands for quality, luxury, technological leadership and performance, and our strong working relationship with DaimlerChrysler means we can maintain a market leading fleet of premium quality vehicles throughout the UK and across continental Europe."

Brian Luff, Leasing and Rental Manager, Mercedes Car Group added: "Mercedes-Benz offers the widest model line-up of any manufacturer, and National Car Rental's customers in many countries can now choose from nine of our most popular ranges. They'll be able to appreciate what makes our cars so special; and of course, by offering Mercedes-Benz it helps increase the prestige associated with National."
