Ryds Bilglas buys 180 new electric courtesy cars

Cary Group’s Swedish operation for repair and replacement of vehicle glass, Ryds Bilglas, has ordered 180 new fossil free Mini Cooper Electric cars to its fleet of courtesy cars. The company has previously been offering courtesy cars to customers in connection to pre-booked vehicle glass replacements, with the fleet of courtesy cars being partly electrified. The company now invests in the transformation of the fleet into a fossil free one, with the new cars that will be delivered starting from April 2023.

“Our customer offering includes a strong sustainability focus and we started with electric courtesy cars already in 2013. This past year we have continued to roll out around 40 electric courtesy cars and I am proud that we are now taking the next step to be able to offer customers a completely fossil free fleet of courtesy vehicles. Customer satisfaction and sustainability have for long been two important focus areas for us, and by making this investment we are offering customers a premium electrified car at the same time as we are reducing the carbon dioxide emissions – it’s a win-win!”,says Fredrik Karlsson, Country Manager Sweden, Cary Group.

In addition to working by the mantra “to always repair instead of replace when possible”, Ryds Bilglas has successfully launched several initiatives connected to sustainability in the customer journey. For example, the company offers a digital damage assessment tool on their website. This enables customers to make a damage assessment without having to drive to a workshop, hence reducing the emissions of carbon dioxide. Cary Group is climate neutral and provide services that are 100 percent climate compensated. This means that the company binds the same amount of C02 equivalent emissions that the company emits, so that the final sum becomes zero.
