VW announced that the deployment of what could be one of the largest all-electric car fleets through its new ‘We Share‘ car sharing service.
Berlin is going to be the first city to get the service and it will start with a 2,000 electric cars.
VW’s electric vehicles are already being used in third-party car-sharing services. For example, Zipcar is building a fleet of over 300 all-electric VW e-Golfs to be available for a car-sharing in London. – electreck.com
But now they want to develop their own service.
Volkswagen said that they will start with 1,500 e-Golf electric cars to launch the service during the second quarter of 2019 and 500 e-up! will follow “later”.
Jürgen Stackmann, Volkswagen Brand Board Member for Sales, commented on the announcement:
“Because of the size and density of its population, Berlin is the ideal market and has the greatest potential. Many people who have already tested car sharing live there – and the numbers keep on growing.
