BMW has joined forces with leading car hire company, Sixt, to launch a new car sharing scheme which will launch in Munich next month.

To be eligible to use the DriveNow car hire scheme, you must first become a registered member and pay a joining fee of €29. There are no rental centres, instead members either log on to the website, or via an app on their mobile phone, to locate their nearest vehicle.

The DriveNow car hire scheme will launch in Munich in April before being rolled out in Berlin later in the summer.
