CANARY WHARF LONDON WELCOMES FULLY ELECTRIC,
CONTACTLESS CAR HIRE SERVICE UFODRIVE
UFODRIVE’s latest partnership to include new electric car parking bays, experiential activations, extensive media support and co-marketing and retailer engagement
LONDON, Friday 24th September: Industry-first, fully sustainable car hire service, UFODRIVE are thrilled to launch a new location to provide 24/7 contactless, fully electric, sustainable car hire for customers at Canary Wharf, London. The new location in Canary Wharf will be the fourth to open in the UK, furthering the commitment by the company to make easy, sustainable electric rental available to everyone. Existing UFODRIVE locations can be found at Park Lane, Oxford Street and Westfield, Shepherds Bush.
UFODRIVE endeavours to revolutionize car rental, making it straightforward, fast, convenient, and cutting edge. With a fleet of exclusively electric vehicles, customers travel sustainably and in style, choosing from a tailored selection of premium electric cars including the Tesla Model S, Tesla Model 3, Hyundai Kona EV and more.
Car hire costs start off from as little as £64 per day and a UFODRIVE car can be rented for as long as needed with flexible options to suit everyone. Users can then drop their car back at Canary Wharf or can have their car delivered, for an additional fee. You can also use your spot in Canary Wharf to park and charge for the duration of your bookings. Pricing is completely transparent, free charging is included with every rental and UFODRIVE customers don’t have to pay congestion charges for London City.
UFODRIVE customers can book and access UFO vehicles via the UFODRIVE smartphone App to experience a seamless and incredible electric experience. The UFODRIVE app allows customers to avoid the usual delays and stress of car rental through keyless access technology.
UFODRIVE is the perfect addition to the Canary Wharf community, offering a service that is eco-friendly, affordable, and flexible.
Aidan McClean, CEO and Co-Founder of UFODRIVE comments: “UFODRIVE is a radically better car rental experience that allows you to simply arrive and drive in less than 2 minutes on your smartphone, 100% electric, zero hassle. It was founded on the idea that modern rental should be simple, smart and enjoyable. Long queues, hidden fees and disappointing service are baked into the traditional rental experience - that’s why we created UFODRIVE with the wants and needs of our customers centre of mind, leveraging modern smart technologies to make clean, green eMobility accessible for all!
At UFODRIVE, our mission is to never compromise when it comes to delivering exceptional experiences for our customers. That’s why it is terrific to be working with Canary Wharf to open our latest UFOBay in London. We are very excited to become a fixture of the Westfield community.”
