Robert visits Zipcar who rent electric cars in London by the hour.

A mega city that’s over 2,000 years old is not the best place to try and drive a highly polluting diesel car, van or bus. We know that, everyone knows that, but it still happens. There are 2.5 million private cars registered in greater London, and double that enter the city every day. It might be a little bit insane. So what are the alternatives?

Robert Llewellyn takes a spin in a 100% electric e-Golf, one of over 300 rented by the hour by Zipcar. Easy to use when you need them, no worrying about parking, tax, insurance, servicing of fuelling when you don’t need a car.
