Owners in London and Glasgow have put their newly purchased Twizys (Twizies?) on WhipCar.com, allowing their neighbours to drive one for as little as £36 per day.
Vinay Gupta, co-founder of WhipCar says: “Many of our car owners are interested in hybrid and all-electric vehicles and have been asking us whether they can list such cars on the site. We’re delighted to now be able to accept certain all-electric models and help car owners embrace new technologies while offsetting the cost of ownership.”
Filippo Adamo from London, comments: “I bought my new Renault Twizy specifically to rent out. I’ve used WhipCar in the past and the experience has always been a very positive one. The Twizy is a really easy drive and does about 60 miles on a single charge. I’ve had a great deal of interest already from neighbours wanting to take it out for a quick spin.”
WhipCar has close to 19,000 cars on its books around the UK. Renault is launching a Twizy car-sharing programme in France from September.
