Renault and Vulog partner to produce car-sharing ready electric cars
The partnership will see 2,500 car-sharing ready Renault ZOEs which will be equipped with the Vulog’s AiMA technology produced by the end of this year.
Vulog and Groupe Renault, have announced a collaboration to manufacture car-sharing ready vehicles, starting immediately.
The agreement enables Groupe Renault to install Vulog’s car-sharing hardware directly on its assembly line for the Renault ZOE, providing for the seamless and instant integration to current and future car-sharing schemes thanks to Vulog’s AiMA platform.
By the end of 2019, over 2,500 Renault ZOEs equipped with Vulog’s car-sharing technology will be in market, initially in northern Europe, South America and the United Arab Emirates.
The partnership will facilitate the deployment of large fleets of sharing-ready cars as a turnkey solution, with Vulog’s technology incorporating a suite of electric fleet management features. The company expects that the collaboration will add significantly to the 15 million trips it powered globally in the last year. These pre-equipped Renault ZOE fleets will be added to an existing footprint of over 25 services worldwide that already use Vulog’s technology as their backbone.
Gregory Ducongé, CEO of Vulog, commented: “We are very proud of this new partnership with the European leader in electric cars and a major driving force in the shared and electric mobility revolution. Our customers will now be able to order fleets of Renault ZOEs pre-equipped with our technology, helping to further simplify the launch of car-sharing services for mobility operators, and encouraging the growth of greener, more economical mobility in our cities. And this is just the first step in our collaboration: we are working to integrate our technology into Groupe Renault’s full range of electric vehicles.”
