London: Electric car club Zipcar delivers e-Golf data
Car club Zipcar says it runs the UK’s largest electric vehicle fleet in London using Volkswagen electric vehicles. And, since the offer has grown to include a total of 325 e-Golf since summer last year, Londoners have shared the electric cars rather eagerly.
