Shared mobility technology company Vulog and electric vehicle manufacturer Groupe Renault, have announced a collaboration to manufacture car-sharing ready vehicles.
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 intend to 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.
Gregory Ducongé, CEO of Vulog said, ‘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,’ added Ducongé.
