London Electrified


Volkswagen and Zipcar have delivered the UK’s largest fleet of shared electric cars to London.

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 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.

Important information :

Lithium-ion batteries, of the type used in most electric vehicles (including Volkswagen electric vehicles) have a restricted lifespan. Battery capacity will reduce over time, with use and charging. Reduction in battery capacity will affect the performance of the vehicle, including the range achievable, and is one of a number of factors that may impact resale value. New vehicle performance figures (including battery capacity and range) may be provided for the purposes of comparison between vehicles. You should not rely on new vehicle performance figures (including battery capacity and range), in relation to used vehicles with older batteries, as they will not reflect used vehicle performance in the real world. For further information on battery degradation/preservation and the Volkswagen 8 year/100,00 mile new car battery warranty, please see here. Exclusions and Warranty Terms Apply.
