What, no charge?


18p/minute after your initial two hour drive.

Alternatively you could test drive a car for the day from a dealership to "enjoy" a few hours free driving.

The amount of car availability is limited too. My other issue is what happens if the one free parking space turns out to be used by a non-electric car and you are still being charged by the minute.

Fascinating concept though and I'm still tempted as I have yet to drive an electric car
Thanks! Handy for using instead of an Uber next time I'm up there.
18p/min seems a bit steep. The UK's first eBike scheme (in Derby) charges 3p/min.

There's a bunch of these outside Clapham Junction. Rarely see them used. The charging cables are normally strewn over the pavement and not plugged into the cars. I'd be doubtful you can go very far in London in 2 hours anyway. When I drive inside the North Circular average speed is 7mph.

Yes, bike vs car. And yes, Derby vs London. Still an observation/comment, call it what you like, that 18p/minute seems a lot. Fine for short periods though and I reckon these schemes are a great idea.
Carsharing in Warsaw...

That's £10.80 for an hour which isn't actually too bad when you factor in that you can dump the car in loads of locations free of charge after each booking. An Uber or standard black cab for an hour's travelling is going to be far more.

To be fair the last thing we need more of in London is cars. Ride sharing does seem the way forward but things like parking (and damn, ev charging) is non-existant
sounds a great idea if you live in london

In warsaw the carshare cars can be left anywhere where there is public parking spot (loads along streets), they are hybrids though no need for plugs)

There are also special zones eg, the airport, which costs extra but can be handy

That seems like a far better approach, infact I thought Zipcar did this back in the early days. Being forced to return the car to a specific location makes it inconvenient. I would definitely use services like this more often if you had flexibility - they'd make a great alternative to cabs.

I suspect an ecar is about 6 times the price of an ebike though...

They just got in before my comment i assume. Anyway...
Just sign up to zipcar! No minimum duration required, can park most places
Shocking price.
How long can I drive on full battery? or would I need to turn into a Flintstone mid journey and pick up my car and run?
where are they mostly operating? London?
