About DriveNow

DriveNow was founded in 2011 as a car sharing joint venture between the BMW Group and Sixt SE. 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 cities includingMunich, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Cologne and Hamburg. In addition, we offer our car-sharing service in other European metropolises: Vienna, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Brussels, Milan, Helsinki and Lisbon.

Flexible and sustainable mobility

With our car sharing service you have access to a car at any time without having to own one. Our fleet offers you a variety of premium vehicles for almost every occasion. The BMW and MINI models are available to you whenever you need a car - with one click in the app you can reserve, unlock and lock any car, so you are always ready to drive within seconds.

With DriveNow you are sustainably mobile. Why? A DriveNow car already replaces at least three private vehicles, because more and more people are abolishing their own car through the car sharing offer. This reduces parking and traffic problems in cities. In addition, with the BMW i3 we also offer an electric alternative at all of our locations. Every month, we give thousands of people an understanding of electric mobility, demonstrating that eco-friendly driving can be a lot of fun.
