DriveNow launches EV car sharing service at London City Airport

The move marks the car sharing firm’s first partnership with a UK airport and provides users with access to a fleet of 290 cars across North and East London. Vehicles available comprise BMW 1 series, MINI Countryman and 50 BMW i3s models – said to be the largest electric car fleet in London.

Driving costs 39p p/m and fuel costs, parking, insurance and car tax are all included. DriveNow customers can either pick up or drop off a car anywhere within the catchment area.

Tom Murphy, commercial manager at London City Airport, said: “We pride ourselves on offering the best possible experience for customers. This new partnership with DriveNow offers more choice for passengers to make their journey as convenient as possible.”

DriveNow – which is owned by BMW Group and Sixt SE – is available at nine other airports across Europe, in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Vienna, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Hamburg, Munich and Berlin.
