Hyundai has launched its first pure-electric car sharing service in the Amsterdam area.

The company says that, with the supply of 100 IONIQ Electric vehicles, Hyundai is widely expanding the offer for citizens and visitors to Amsterdam to drive “completely emission-free”.

Based on the free floating concept, customers of ”IONIQ car sharing” can collect and return their vehicle anywhere in Amsterdam and its surroundings. In line with its global sustainability strategy for a cleaner future, Hyundai helps to improve air quality in the Dutch capital by making zero-emission driving easily accessible.

“We are proud to have initiated our first pure-electric car sharing service in Europe and, in so doing, to help the city government of Amsterdam achieve its climate targets, said Thomas Schmid, COO at Hyundai Motor Europe.  “With the launch of 15 eco cars by 2020 Hyundai Motor is further demonstrating its pioneering role in eco-mobility. By offering the greatest variety of powertrains – electric, hybrid and fuel cell – our brand is committed to future mobility and to matching our customers’ lifestyles.”

Hyundai says that, to improve the overall customer experience, it offers full-digital business services. The registration for the car sharing service takes only a few minutes using an app available via Apple or GooglePlay store.  Personal data, payment information and a scanned driving license can be sent through the regular digital channels. The app allows customers to find a nearby vehicle or make a reservation.
