Go Zero plans to have 1,000 franchises operating in major UK cities and airports
An electric taxi company is planning to expand its service offering by selling franchises in the UK.
Go Zero, has launched the Go Zero Network comprising 1,000 franchises that will operate in major cities and airports.
Investors have the opportunity to purchase a five-year licence that enables them to operate their own business under the Go Zero brand, potentially earning between £30,000-£50,000 after costs. In addition, franchisees own the Tesla vehicle after the five-year term.

Poor air quality is the biggest environmental risk to public health in the UK and for this reason the government is planning for all new cars to be effectively zero emission capable by 2040.
Go Zero opened for business in 2017. Since then the company estimates it’s completed over 10,000 zero emission journeys covering over 600,000 electric miles, saving 174 tons of CO2.
David Wells, chief executive officer of Go Zero, says: “Carbon emissions and pollution is a growing concern for many people and our founding principles address some of these emission and industry issues by providing electric vehicles powered by renewable energy.
“The next step of Go Zero’s journey is about to begin and we’re excited to be launching the franchise business and introducing franchisees to our brand, who will in turn help us change the future of travel by providing a reliable and affordable experience for everyone, whether it is for business or pleasure.
“Our aim is not only to provide a sustainable future that’s better for the environment as well as the population, but also to help businesses meet their corporate social responsibility goals by reducing their carbon footprint.”
