Volkswagen will offer an electric car sharing service as part of its WE/We customer platform, next year.
The on-demand service will launch in Germany with an international rollout planned the following year.
“We are convinced that the car sharing market still has potential. That is why we are entering this market with a holistic single-source concept covering all mobility needs from the short journey that takes just a few minutes to the long vacation trip.
“Our vehicle-on-demand fleets will consist entirely of electric cars, and will therefore provide zero-emission, sustainable mobility. That is an intelligent way to relieve the strain on urban areas”, Jürgen Stackmann, Volkswagen brand board member for sales said.
Vehicle-on-demand services from the WE/We customer platform could also be used to provide services such as a parking app or location based vouchering.
