Launched in Christchurch in February 2018, Yoogo Share is New Zealand’s only pure electric car sharing business. Through Yoogo Share, people can drive a zero emission BMW i3 or Hyundai IONIQ by the hour, day, night or weekend.
To encourage uptake of EVs, Yoogo Share launched a monthly subscription – ‘The Club’ – in April 2019. It is aimed at people who currently drive to work in cities and leave their vehicle parked all day. Members have access to electric cars every night and all weekend for an affordable weekly rate. With no parking costs, no ownership costs and no maintenance to worry about, ‘The Club’ offers hassle-free EV use at a fraction of the cost of ownership.
As part of its EV car sharing service in Christchurch and Auckland, more than 165 tonnes of carbon emissions have been saved in Yoogo Share’s first 18 months of operation.
