What is Zipcar?

Zipcar is the world’s largest car sharing club. In partnership with Volkswagen, it offers convenient access to our electric e-Golf and hybrid Golf GTE cars without the cost and complication of ownership. We wanted to offer all Londoners the opportunity to experience the joy of driving both electric and a combined petrol and electric hybrid, coupled with the excitement of driving the popular Golf range. So whether you’re exploring London or travelling further afield, the e-Golf and GTE will help you discover more.

The Golf GTE

The e-Golf and Golf GTE

Everybody loves a Golf, which is why we based our latest electric vehicle on the multi-award-winning Golf hatchback. We’ve kept the Golf’s virtues of practicality, refinement and advanced technology to create an all-electric all star.

Golf GTE
The multi-award winning Golf GTE is the best of both worlds, giving you the combination of powerful and responsive dynamics with e-Golf sustainability and economy. It features a petrol engine and an electric motor, with a combined range of up to 166 miles per gallon.
