DriveNow was founded in 2011 as a car sharing joint venture by the BMW Group and is a wholly owned subsidiary of the BMW Group since March 9, 2018. From the very start, our goal has been to give people a flexible and sustainable mobility alternative to owning their own car and working together with cities to reduce traffic and emission problems.
In European metropolises, we offer high-quality BMW and MINI vehicles based on the so-called free-floating principle: you can spontaneously rent and park cars anywhere within a defined business area using the DriveNow App – a car can usually be found within walking distance. With the 13 cities in Europe, more than 6,000 BMW and MINI models are available for flexible use. Over one million customers have already chosen DriveNow and can use our service across cities.
In the UK, you can rent our cars in North East London. In addition, we offer our car-sharing service in other European metropolises: Munich, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Cologne and Hamburg, Vienna, Copenhagen, Brussels, Milan, Helsinki and Lisbon.
We shape the future of mobility
As a future-oriented company, we are constantly expanding our service and shaping the mobility of tomorrow. The focus is on a high availability of our vehicles and the simple, comfortable use of our services. So we want to cover your individual mobility needs in the best possible way.
For us, car sharing means more than just the flexible driving from A to B. In combination with other mobility services, such as public transport or bike sharing, we provide the basis for an appropriate mobility of city dwellers and so for modern urban development: less traffic and fewer cars taking up parking spaces and thus more freedom and quality of life in the long term.
