Driving Your SIXT Electric Car in France

We offer electric car rental in France in multiple locations including Paris, Lyon, and Monaco. Driving an electric vehicle has a definite advantage in this country, as several cities have either “traffic restriction zones” (ZCR) where the traffic is permanently restricted. There are also “air protection zones” (ZPA) that can impact a large area but are only valid for a few days at a time when air quality is bad. But in a zero-emissions vehicle you can enter these zones with no problem. That means you can drive from Paris to Nantes and the coast, from Lyon to Bordeaux, or from Monaco to Cannes or Marseilles. Just be sure to find out where EV charging locations are along your route before starting your journey. 

Benefits of an Electric Vehicle Rental in France

  • Get around quickly and quietly without worrying about not accessing parts of cities or regions only for low-emission vehicles. 
  • Electric cars are easy to drive, and recharging is a snap. You can easily find out where charging locations are by downloading an app. 
  • Save money by recharging your electric car rental versus paying for gas. As a bonus, you can feel good about driving in France in a zero-emissions electric vehicle.
