Yoogo Share is New Zealand’s only pure electric car sharing business. 

Yoogo Share launched its Christchurch service in February 2018. Expansion into Auckland and Wellington is currently underway.

Yoogo Share’s purpose is to improve the utilisation of and reduce the impact from all cars on New Zealand roads. Yoogo Share aims to democratise electric vehicles, reduce congestion and accelerate New Zealand’s transition to a smart future.

Yoogo Share business and private members book Hyundai IONIQ and BMW i3 BEV’s by the minute, hour, day, night or weekend from seven hubs across Christchurch and one hub (so far) in Auckland’s CBD.

Business and private members book cars via the Yoogo Share app and access the entire fleet of electric cars via the Yoogo Share app or with a Yoogo Share access card.

Christchurch City Council is a Foundation member of Yoogo Share, business members include Warren & Mahoney, Jacobs, The Building Intelligence Group and Aurecon.

Initially offering a round-trip model Yoogo Share have continued to innovate and in 2019 launched an after-hour subscription service called The Club (thought to be a world first) and a One-Way service between Christchurch Airport and two CBD locations.

Yoogo Share’s pure electric fleet generates zero tailpipe emissions and presents business and private members with a way to reduce carbon emissions without carbon offsetting.
