For Earth Month, Zipcar Unveils Flying Shared Electric Vehicles, “Zipjets,” Sustainably Powered by Solar & Lunar Energy for Earth Month

BOSTON, April 1, 2024 – Now, urbanites and cities everywhere can have a ya dabba dabba do day with Zipcar, the world’s leading car-sharing network, and its newly launched flying electric fleet: Zipjet. Since its founding in 2000, Zipcar has been driven by a mission to enable simple and responsible urban living by reducing personal car ownership. While the company’s efforts on the ground have socially and environmentally impacted planet Earth over the past 25 years, Zipjets will stretch the company’s mission to new heights in preparation for when earthlings orbit space. 

“Now drivers can truly have their ‘heads in the clouds’ as they drive wherever they need to go in a Zipjet,” said Angelo Adams, head of Zipcar. “As a pioneer of car-sharing on the ground, Zipjets are a game-changer for reducing carbon emissions, traffic on city streets and parking competition. Now we can bring equitable, sustainable transportation to all - including extra-terrestrials!” 

The Impact of Zipjets on the Environment

Developed in partnership with a wicked smaht university in Boston, Zipjets enable a new frontier of environmentally-friendly transportation. Solar and lunar panels ensure sustainable energy powered vehicles while providing environmentally carbon-emission-free transportation to urbanites, college students, businesses, and governments who increasingly aim to reach net zero carbon emissions.  

With vehicles in the air, congestion will decrease, and the flexibility of flying like a crow will enable drivers to travel to destinations more quickly. Newfound free space on earth will open streets and curbs to allow humans to enjoy the earth the way it was meant to be – green and full of nature – instead of grey and full of manmade roads and parking lots. 

Given the lack of regulatory oversight in space, Zipjets are only available to reserve on the moon. Book a Zipjet today for the whole family – George, Jane, Judy and Elroy – using special promo code “APRIL FOOL!” for unlimited mileage.
