Volkswagen has introduced 1,500 e-Golfs in Berlin, Germany, as part of the world’s largest fleet of all-electric vehicles for a public car sharing service.
The WeShare service, which allows users to access free-floating vehicles across the city using their smartphones and park them in designated charging spaces when finished, will also introduce 500 e-up cars in the next few months.
WeShare is an app-based service powered by Vulog, a leading shared mobility technology provider, that makes it debut in Berlin, but plans are in place by Volkswagen to also see the service in Prague, Hamburg and more cities across Europe.
“We are proud to support one of the world’s leading carmakers for its entry into the fast-growing carsharing market. WeShare is going to drastically change the way people move in Berlin, and allow urban users to engage with e-mobility. All carmakers have this incredible opportunity in front of them to transform urban mobility by deploying large shared electric fleets into our cities where sustainable mobility has become a top priority,” said Gregory Ducongé, CEO of Vulog.
