BMW and the city of Hamburg are partnering on urban mobility, and aim to expand the number of DriveNow EVs in the city to around 550 by 2019. That number will include 400 pure EVs and around 150 PHEVs.
Hamburg will provide 1,150 charging points by 2019. It will also become the first city in Germany to reserve a large number of parking spaces for shared and/or electric cars.
DriveNow, a car-sharing joint venture between BMW and Sixt, operates mainly in Germany and a number of European cities, including London. Users can spot cars available nearby and unlock them via an app.
