Electric car hire

London is set to host the finish of the world’s first fully electric motor racing series, Formula E, in Battersea Park in June.  The Government’s Go Ultra Low campaign, launched by the Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, is investing £9m to increase the number of car charging points across the country as the popularity of electric vehicles is expected to rise. 

With this market in mind Electric Car Hire Ltd has been created for the car rental sector, by giving drivers the chance to experience the sights and sounds of the South East in a state-of-the-art electric car.  The company offers a fleet of cutting edge zero-emission BMW i3 cars suitable for tourists, business travellers and local residents.

The European electric vehicle market grew by 37% last year, with the UK recording the biggest increase.  The UK also has the highest number of new electric vehicles, with more than 15,000 on the road.

Electric Car Hire will rent you a BMW i3 for £59 per day or £235 a week.  The vehicle is free to charge at most roadside charging points across London and can be fully charged in just 30 minutes using a ‘DC fast charge’ device, provided at the site.  www.electriccarhire.co.uk
