SIXT enters the market for shared cars and will introduce fully electric vehicles in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague on Wednesday. The cars can be used per hour, per day and per week.

The company starts with five fully electric models: the BMW i3, Jaguar I-PACE, Nissan LEAD, SKODA CITIGOe iV and the Volkswagen e-Golf.

The vehicles can be used for up to 27 days in a row. Use per hour, part thereof or per day is also possible. The costs are at least 19 cents per minute.

"This means that a customer simply picks up a car in Amsterdam in the morning, can drive to work in Rotterdam or The Hague, and then leave the car here," said Karen van den Boom, CEO of SIXT Netherlands.

In addition to in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague, the vehicles can also be left at SIXT stores after use.

The landlord sees the new service as an alternative to public transport and emphasizes that strict hygiene protocols apply and that the cars will be regularly inspected and disinfected.
