BMW Group owned car-sharing service, DriveNow, announce that they have added 130 brand new BMW i3 vehicles to their current electric fleet in London.
The new vehicles are the BMW i3 120Ah model which feature double the range of the previous version, and hence means more time for driving emission free.
The original BMW i3 model (50 cars) will still be available to drive until the end of April. Customers can drive the BMW i3 by the minute (39p/min) or take a 2, 3, 4 or 6 hour package if they need the car for longer.
DriveNow is committed to improving the city’s air quality and continues to drive change with the addition of even more electric vehicles, aiming to have an 80% all electric fleet by 2025.
“The introduction of the new BMW i3’s is such a positive step forward for DriveNow and the e-mobility industry. It makes sense for us to expand our electric fleet and continue to offer customers a sustainable alternative to privately-owned transport. We have an important role to play in London, helping to normalise EV use and contribute further to improvements in air quality,” said James Taylor, DriveNow UK Managing Director.
Supporting the Mayor of London’s vision for cleaner air, the company remains committed to reducing the number of privately-owned vehicles on the road and to be part of the solution to help reduce the damaging effects of air pollution. Working with local authorities to lower emissions and embed shared e-mobility in the automotive landscape, DriveNow will continue to champion the change needed to make London more liveable.
