Following recent expansion in San Francisco, Austin, London, Frankfurt, and Madrid, UFODRIVE, the leader in electric vehicle rental, has released a full-service subscription product driven by customer demand for longer term rentals and flexible alternatives to leasing.
“Our unique customer experience drives incredible loyalty and repeat business. We found customers across many of our countries repeatedly extending rentals for weeks and months at a time – which you can do with one click at home,” said Aidan McClean, UFODRIVE CEO and co-founder. “When we spoke to these customers, they were looking for on-demand ownership with our experience levels. By creating the subscription product, we can offer better rates that reward longer rentals and offer greater flexibility. Unlike others, we’re not cutting our service levels to support this product. You get the same proactive 24/7 support that makes us the highest rated rental experience in the world and you can have it delivered to your door or collected when you’re done.”
UFODRIVE subscription is available across 8 countries including UK, Ireland, Spain, and Germany. It is planned to be available for US based customers in Q1. Cars can be collected from the unique UFOBAYs or delivered directly to your door in major cities using UFODRIVE’s existing rental delivery service. Unlike most subscription and traditional leasing services, customers have 24/7 access to UFODRIVE’s experts who will monitor your charge levels, book you into the best available charger, guide you to it, and even unlock the car if you forgot your keys.
“We’re not expecting subscription to fundamentally change car ownership,” says Aidan McClean, “but we hope it will reward our most loyal customers and give anyone who wants to go electric another seamless way to find out why EVs are better and EVs with UFODRIVE are the best.”
2022 has been a record growth year for UFODRIVE, with the company’s recent European and US expansion following the announcement earlier this year of a $19 million Series A financing round, co-led by Hertz and Certares. UFODRIVE currently operates in 9 countries and more than 20 locations including London, San Francisco, Paris, Berlin, Dublin, Austin, and Amsterdam.
London-based customers can book a subscription today for unrivalled access to UFODRIVE’s fleet of the latest EVs – including the Tesla Models S, 3 & Y, Jaguar I-Pace, Audi E-Tron and more – in minutes from UFODRIVE’s iPhone or Android app. Have a car delivered to your door, or simply drive away today from one of UFODRIVE’s five central London locations in Canary Wharf, Oxford Street, Park Lane, Stratford International and Westfield Shepherd’s Bush.
UFODRIVE was recently named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award in the ‘Company of the Year – Transportation’ category in the 19th Annual International Business Awards.
