Zipcar Introduces 300 Volkswagen e-Golfs for London

Zipcar, a leading car-sharing network, is introducing over 300 Volkswagen e-Golfs to London this year, in what is expected to be the country’s largest number of publicly available shared electric cars.

While full details of the scheme and how it will work will be revealed when it launches in July, Zipcar UK can confirm the first 100 electric cars will be available from this summer, increasing to 325 by the end of the year.

The cars will be part of the popular, by-the-minute Zipcar Flex service, allowing members to drive and drop one-way around London.

"With over 200,000 Zipcar members now in London, we are already seeing Londoners embracing car sharing rather than car owning in growing numbers,” revealed Jonathan Hampson, general manager, Zipcar, UK.
