A Zipcar VW Golf parked in Wimbledon, London

Every Zipcar has a name. One's called Toledo, another one's called Glory. At this very moment, someone may well be behind the wheel of a Zipcar Elvis. And with around 10,000 cars zipping about the fleet, that's a whole lot of naming going on. Where do our Fleet team get their inspiration? Well actually, we let you lot do the hard work.

'Name That Zipcar'

Every few months we ask our Zipcar UK Facebook fans to help us name our newest cars. To make it easier, we pick a theme. We had the Olympics in 2012 (Bolt was pretty popular), we did winter a few months back (Rudolph cropped up a time or two), and of course it was a 'green' theme for our eco-friendly plug-in Amperas.

So while you're here, fancy suggesting a name for one of our future Zipcars? This month's theme is sport, so nominate your favourite sportsperson in the comments below and they may well pop up on a street near you.
