The German rental car service Sixt announced the addition of green options to the Sixt Ride business. Customers booking transfer or limousine services may now choose a hybrid or fully electric vehicle in select European cities.
Sixt Ride lists Berlin, Dresden and Munich in Germany, where the low emission cars have now become available with “numerous other European cities” being mentioned. Specifically, customers in Paris, Essonne, Seine-et-Marne, Vexin and Yvelines in France; London, Crawley, Edinburgh, Farnborough, Gatwick, Glasgow, Guildford, Heathrow, Luton, Oxford and Reading in the UK; Milan in Italy; Amsterdam in the Netherlands; Stockholm in Sweden; Zurich in Switzerland; Barcelona in Spain and Istanbul in Turkey can book the new service via the app or online.
Melanie Wand, Executive Director Sixt ride Operations, pointed out “a rise in demand for electromobility in the market” has led Sixt to include hybrid and electric vehicles.
In the overall business, Sixt claims around a third of the car-sharing fleet consist of electric vehicles, including e-scooters and e-mopeds. The latest integration of electrified vehicles into the ride-hailing service takes Sixt one step further into becoming an all-around mobility provider. Apart from Sixt ride, there is also Sixt share, Sixt rent and Sixt+ covering the vehicle and commercial vehicle rental, car sharing, ride-hailing and car subscriptions.
