What Zilch members are saying
“As a public organisation who has a clear plan to reduce its carbon emissions and be net carbon neutral by 2030 at latest, we know it’s vital to reduce our transport emissions, which form such a major part of the city’s emissions. We know how urgent it is to reduce our carbon footprint.
Not only has Zilch provided a transport solution without the use of fossil fuel, but they have also encouraged people to try electric vehicles and enjoy the benefits of, and the experience of driving them.”
“At Aurecon we have made a commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. A transition to a fully electric fleet that Zilch was offering was an obvious choice for our business.
Zilch presented the opportunity to transition to a modern fleet of vehicles with improved safety standards including In Vehicle Monitoring Systems (IVMS). This is an important next step for our health and safety journey.
We are really enjoying the simplicity of Zilch and our staff are really excited to be part of the sustainable transport initiative.”
“When I need a car I book via the app, jump in, sync my music and the car instantly feels like it’s my own.
Whether it’s for a work meeting or heading out on the weekend shopping, it’s easy.”

Electric cars aren’t the answer
Most cars sit unused 95% of the time, so it seems pretty ludicrous to buy one of your own, doesn’t it? Car sharing not only increases the amount of time each car is driven, there are also loads of other benefits for car sharers, and cities alike
Zilch cars are all 100% battery electric. There’s no petrol or diesel used in Zilch cars
One shared car can replace 10 privately used vehicles, freeing our city streets
All our cars are ANCAP 5-star rated, full of the latest safety technology
Shared private & public use means anyone over 21yrs can drive Zilch cars
