Electric car hire with Zipcar


Did you know that we have over 1,000 electric cars you can hire? Our vision is simple – to enable simple and responsible urban living. And our mission is bold – to change the way people think about driving in cities around the world. Car sharing with us is already a more sustainable way to travel, but we wanted to take this further. That’s why in 2018 we introduced our first electric cars – and have been adding more and more ever since!

Three handy hints before you hit the road

If you’ve never rented an electric car before, here are some handy hints to get you started.

Check the range

Our app and the dashboard will show you an approximate range. Speed, cold weather, air-conditioning and heating will impact the car’s mileage. You’ll find more tips here.

Plan your route

If you’re taking a longer trip you may need to charge the car. Just make sure you plan where your nearest rapid charging station will be - you’ll find your nearest with the Zapmap.

It’s quiet

Our EV's are super quiet. You’ll know you’re ready to drive when the dashboard screen lights up! You can find out more about each car here.

Meet our electric cars

Access 1,000+ electric cars whenever you need them. We cover the cost of charging, and the price is the same to use an electric car. They’re a cleaner, greener (and pretty fun!) way to travel. Take charge and drive them wherever you need – a day trip to the beach, a weekend away, or just getting across town!

Our vision for 2030

Electric car sharing is fundamentally important to London, which is why we have re-committed to make this happen.   We’ve seen that when we set an ambitious target and work together, we can achieve great things. Although we would like to do this sooner than 2030, it remains an ambitious, but realistic target, given the economic and infrastructure challenges and is five years ahead of the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel cars. We’re confident that by working together we can deliver a fully electric fleet by 2030.
