Vauxhall teams up with car sharing company for Ampera pilot

Vauxhall has teamed up with Zipcar, the car sharing company, to offer its Ampera electric-vehicle to London customers in a six month pilot deal.

It’s the first time in the UK that a car sharing club has offered access to an extended-range electric vehicle (E-REV), and Zipcar members will be able to reserve the Ampera online or using their smart phones, just as they would any other of the 1,700 cars across London.

Mark Walker, general manager of Zipcar UK, said: “To make this pilot possible – specifically the provision of dedicated charging points – we will be partnering with five London Boroughs: Camden, Croydon, Islington, Wandsworth and Westminster.

“For a number of years, we have worked closely with these Boroughs to develop the uptake of car sharing in London and their continued commitment to advancing the concept of car sharing is crucial for making London an even better place to live and work.”
