Hyundai is studying the launch of a car-sharing system using electric vehicles, something that BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot and Renault already offer in Europe and the United States.
We are thinking about a possible subscription model for EVs,
Wonhong Cho, chief marketing officer for Hyundai Motor, told Automotive News Europe in January during the CES technology show in Las Vegas. The cars will be used by paying for kilometers, minutes or megawatts.
Hyundai conducted a test in Amsterdam last year with 100 units of the Ioniq full-electric vehicle through a joint venture with Car4Share. The trial was suspended at the end of 2018 after more than 100,000 Ioniq car-sharing trips in Amsterdam.
