Ubeeqo adds Hyundai Ioniq hybrid to car sharing fleet

Ubeeqo, Europcar Mobility Group’s car sharing brand, has added the Hyundai Ioniq plug-in hybrid to its London fleet.

The Ioniq will be available to book in the Ubeeqo app from £7/hour and £70/day including fuel, insurance and 30 miles free on car sharing bookings.

Ubeeqo has doubled its UK membership year-on-year at the end of 2019 and is working with local authorities in Croydon, Islington, Lewisham, Kensington & Chelsea, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Wandsworth to offer car sharing services.

Patrick Cresswell, Ubeeqo UK managing director, said: “With the Ioniq’s introduction, we are increasing both availability and choice for the growing number of motorists who are choosing to move away from the expense of car ownership, as well as help reduce congestion on our roads.

“We are working hard to ensure that those who do give up their own vehicle have the certainty that a car club will give them the access to mobility when they need it from as near to their home or business address as possible.”

Ubeeqo uses a roundtrip geofencing model that ensures vehicles are returned to the area where they were picked up from at the start of the journey.

The geofence vehicles ‘live’ in a geofenced location, usually spanning over one or two streets, and the customer picks up and returns the vehicle to this area.

All vehicles in the Ubeeqo fleet are specially adapted to include an RFID card access system, meaning the cars can be booked via the Ubeeqo app or website and used by several different people throughout the day.
