Next stop: Hamburg
The target remains Europe’s major cities, where Volkswagen will expand its car sharing service. However, the Corona virus put the brakes on WeShare’s expansion plans. “Due to the Corona pandemic, we are unfortunately only able to launch in Hamburg with a delay of around one year. We are all the more pleased that things are finally getting underway,” says Philipp Reth, CEO of WeShare, Volkswagen’s car sharing service.
Hamburg was not only a German pioneer metropolis for free floating car sharing, i.e. car sharing with flexible start and return points. Many innovative mobility concepts were put on the road here. With its all-electric fleet, WeShare intends to play an important role in Hamburg’s service mix in the future. Around 800 electric ID.3 vehicles will be on the road in an environmentally friendly manner.
