The announcement of the new VW E-Golf scheme by Zipcar marks yet another important initiative undertaken in London in recent times, to reduce air-pollution levels in the city by encouraging the deployment of more electric vehicles (EVs).
The addition of over 300 VW e-golf electric cars to Zipcar’s car-sharing fleet means that there will be an addition in the number of EVs available to the more than 200,000 members of the Zipcar car-sharing service in London.
As per the details disclosed by Zipcar in its recent announcement, the first 100 units of VW e-Golf all-electric cars will be added to the Zipcar service starting this summer. By the end of the year, the number of EVs available from Zipcar for car-sharing purposes will be increased to 325 units.
Further revealing that the EVs will be accessible by Zipcar members via the existing Zipcar app, the company said that the EVs will be available as part of by-the-minute Zipcar Flex service, a popular service which enables Zipcar members to ‘drive and drop’ one-way around London.
