DriveNow is launching the service in partnership with Arriva Danmark, the largest bus operator in Copenhagen. Arriva won the competition tendered by the city of Copenhagen last April to operate a free floating carsharing system.

DriveNow is starting the service today (Sept. 3) with an electric car fleet of 400 BMW i3, which will be stationed in the 85-square-kilometer business district and will be available for rental without prior reservation. Good for the spontaneous! Customers will have access to over 600 charging points — all powered with renewable energy — to recharge the cars.
