UFODrive, an emobility provider in Europe, announces opening a new ‘UFOBay’ at Frankfurt Airport's Terminal 1. Customers can rent one of the company's EVs anytime via an app.
“The opening of our new ‘UFOBay’ at UFODrive Frankfurt Airport delivers on our vision to create a sustainable, eco-conscious business, and an incredible customer experience — simple, fast, easy, and modern — combining the smartphone revolution with the growing electric car revolution," said Aidan McClean, UFODrive co-founder and CEO. "With UFODrive, there are no hidden or unexpected charges, just transparent pricing, and a fleet of premium electric cars that all come with a customer-focused experience and value for money.”
Renaud Marquet, COO & co-founder, added, “Germany is a key market for us and there was a clear need for a modern EV service at Frankfurt Airport. 80% of all travellers to and from Frankfurt
Airport are business travelers, all of whom can now benefit from the time-saving, convenience, and value of UFODrive’s modern, 24/7, smartphone-controlled service."
Frankfurt Airport is the company's first major international airport hub location in Germany and third location overall in the country, with existing locations in Hamburg and Berlin. The company's vehicles are equipped with a CCS system, which means that they can charge at any charge point across Germany with pre-paid cards, providing free charging for customers.
UFODrive’s fleet of EVs are available in nine countries and 21 locations globally, with further expansion planned for the U.S. and Europe this year. Earlier this year, the company received a $19 million Series A financing round, co-led by Hertz and Certares, in partnership with Knighthead Capital Management, with participation from existing investors.
