Electric Car Hire is supporting a greener future for the car rental market by giving drivers the chance to experience the sights and sounds of the South East in a state-of-the-art electric car.

Offering a fleet of zero-emission 100% electric BMW i3s, tourists and business travellers can now embrace this eco-friendly future and explore London and South East, for daily or weekly hire, in energy-saving style.

With London set to host the finish of the world’s first fully electric motor racing series, Formula E, in Battersea Park in June, and the Government’s Go Ultra Low campaign, launched by the deputy prime minister Nick Clegg, which is investing £9million to increase the number of car charging points across the country, the popularity of electric vehicles is expected to rise.

The company's managing director, Matthew Munson, said: “We are on the cusp of a new and exciting era in motoring with sustainable driving now becoming part of the nation’s conscience. There are now more charging points in London than petrol stations, and with the Government funding only increasing the numbers, it has never been easier to make sure your vehicle is charged and ready for use. We’re here to support this trend and offer an affordable service that’s environmentally and user-friendly drivers can now be part of the electric dream by hiring our state-of-the-art BMW i3s and getting the London experience in style.”

Drivers can hire a car from £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 30 minutes using a ‘DC fast charge’ device, provided upon rental.
