UfoDrive has announced that it plans to expand electric vehicle rental operations to the United States, following rapid growth in 18 cities across Europe including London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, and Dublin. The first North American UfoDrive location has launched in San Fransisco to be followed quickly by further locations across Europe and the United States. 

UforDrive is also announcing the opening of a global tech hub and innovation centre in Dublin later this month.  

The hub will serve as focal point for further development of their unique electric rental platform and help UforDrive unlock more of the features that make EV rental the best product on the market, it says.  

Aidan McClean, CEO and co-founder of UforDrive, explained: “In only a few years we’ve helped customers drive 15 million fully electric miles. Behind the scenes we try to solve every anxiety and make the enhanced electric driving experience a reality for our customers. 

“Our customers love the UforDrive experience, and that success has allowed us to accelerate plans to reach North America and open the tech hub and innovation centre in Ireland.  

“Those are big steps towards helping accelerate the transition to sustainable rental and introduce more and more people to the joy of driving electric.” 

UfoDrive San Francisco is now open in the heart of downtown San Francisco, with a full EV fleet set to be active by the end of August, and additional expansion to other US cities planned for autumn.
