Zipcar and Hyundai have agreed a deal to introduce 100 i30 models to the company's London car sharing fleet.
Zipcar members can now reserve a Hyundai i30, to use by the hour or by the day, via the Zipcar website or smartphone app, and be driving in a matter of minutes. Simply unlock the car with either a Zipcard or the mobile app, then drive away.
Zipcar operates in eight countries and has over 950,000 members globally. As well as a presence in London, Zipcar offers cars for hire in other UK cities such as Bristol, Oxford and Cambridge.
The i30 will join other more established *C-segment models on Zipcar’s fleet across London. With its efficient engine range, it will support Zipcar in its efforts to improve air quality and reduce pollution in the cities where it operates.
Martin Wilson, Hyundai UK fleet director, said, “We are extremely proud to be working with Zipcar and we look forward to the i30 impressing Zipcar’s members over the coming months. With the cars located in so many key areas across London, this will give us an exceptional opportunity to engage with drivers who may not have considered a Hyundai before – and get their feedback too.”
Mark Walker, Zipcar UK general manager, said: “Hyundai’s offering was a natural choice for us. The i30 is well suited to Zipcar, because of its quality, easy handling and intuitive controls. Its quality is essential to both our members who are driving the cars and to us who manage them. Factor in Bluetooth and smartphone connectivity, and I have no doubt the i30 will be a big hit with our members.”
