100 Hyundai IONIQ electric cars running as carsharing in Amsterdam
By: Fedora Atjeh | Oktober 09, 2017
Hyundai has already started operating with its carsharing service. It has not done so in Spain as Daimler with Car2Go, PSA with EMOV or the future company of carsharing of Renault, but in Holland.
Amsterdam has been the chosen venue to launch this project, the first of its kind for the Korean brand that will have 100 Hyundai IONIQ electric for its customers' journeys.
The name of the service coincides with that of the used car model, 'IONIQ car sharing' is how it will be known and as usual, everything will revolve around an App from which to reserve the car, start the journey and handle the various parameters available.
The process of registering and authenticating new users is done entirely from the App, without having to go to a physical place with your driver's license as it did in Car2Go when it began to operate in Spain.
Autonomy to travel even outside Amsterdam
The Hyundai IONIQ electric has an autonomy of 280 kilometers. With such a distance, customers can move fairly freely through Amsterdam, where distances do not typically exceed 20 km on average, or even travel to other cities.
The Amsterdam - Rotterdam route with a distance of 80 km, Amsterdam - Nijmegen with 120 km or Amsterdam - Eindhoven 125 km are feasible with a single charge. The only precondition is that the car must be returned in Amsterdam.
Hyundai's first carsharing service is already underway, and if it works as other operators are doing, it would not be surprising if they were to offer such services outside the Netherlands. Why not Spain? Time to time.
