Sixt, the German car rental and ride-hailing company, is giving customers a choice of hybrid or electric vehicles when booking a transfer or limousine service. Travelers can now select hybrid or fully electric vehicles when booking trips online or via the Sixt app.
The sustainable, CO2-efficient models are available in several European cities across the UK, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Turkey.
German cities include Berlin, Dresden and Munich. Other destinations include London, Edinburgh and Glasgow, Paris, Essonne and Yvelines, Milan, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Stockholm, Zurich and Istanbul.
Sixt offers customers worldwide a network of taxi, limousine and ride services, with the app offering worldwide access to a fleet of over 200,000 vehicles. Last month the firm announced plans to pilot a new driverless “robotaxi” service in Munich in 2022.
“By integrating a hybrid and fully electric vehicle range in SIXT ride, we offer our customers a CO2-reduced option for transfers during holidays, on business trips or in everyday life thus taking a further step towards a comprehensive, sustainable range in the interests of our customers,” said Melanie Wand, executive director of Sixt ride operations. “We see a rise in demand for electromobility in the market and are pleased to be able to meet this with our ride service.”
