The end of the service was recently announced on BeeZero's Facebook page. The following is the press release.
Dear pioneers, dear friends of hydrogen,
Writing the following lines is not easy for us: after two exciting years, BeeZero, the world's first car sharing with hydrogen, comes to an end this summer. With gratitude, we look back on this exciting and intense time.
In the summer of 2016 BeeZero was launched to show that fuel cell vehicles are absolutely suitable for everyday use and to give you the opportunity to experience the emission-free hydrogen mobility itself. Together with you we have achieved this:
- You have covered almost 400,000 zero-emission kilometers
- Our vehicles traveled more than 850,000 hours with you
- Together, we saved almost 40,000 kg of CO2
We are very proud of these results. The large number of inquiries we received about our vehicles also confirmed that there is a great deal of interest in hydrogen mobility. It has also been shown that car sharing is a great way to bring this technology to many people.
However, we have also learned that such a model can only be operated in the long term, even if it is economically viable. For this reason, we will have to discontinue our offer as of June 30, 2018.
We thank you and all other pioneers who have accompanied us on our journey! It's great that you share our vision of holistic emission-free mobility thanks to fuel cell, sustainable hydrogen and sharing.
We would also like to thank you for your numerous contributions on our social media channels and your honest feedback.
How will BeeZero continue in the next few weeks?
The BeeZero car sharing can still be used as usual until the 30th of June 2018. From the 1st of July 2018 the company is closed. But we want our cars to be used as intensively as possible by you for the next few weeks. Therefore, we give you another € 20 in credit: All you have to do is simply enter "DANKE2018" in your BeeZero app
