Gredi Nikollaj founded Welectrify, a social media platform focused on improving electric mobility and how consumers utilize their electric cars.
The social media industry and the automotive industry is evolving at a rapid rate, improving the convenience and flexibility available to customers.
Welectrify is all about sharing & helping electric vehicle owners get from one location to another by relying on peer to peer sharing in a social media platform. It’s about sharing rides with friends via the most energy efficient network available
Gredi was able to answer a few of our questions about the business and the industry.
Gredi, when did Welectrify begin and where did the idea come from?
Coming to Shanghai and experiencing the traffic jams of this mega city made me think how we can do something against that. I am an expat here and when I go to work in the morning, I see three other cars from the same compound heading from the same place as mine to the same company as mine at the same time. Three cars with each five seats are only transporting 3 people at the same time on the same way.
And these 3 guys each sitting in their car then wonder, why there is no place on the streets left. So, we thought, when we share the same route why not sharing the same car? This is how we started Welectrify. It is about us, no one but us can help to reduce traffic and to make use of unused space. And what could be better than a social media platform to connect with friends? This is how we launched the first social media mobility platform running in Shanghai, China, in Germany and soon in Albania, Tirana.
Does the application operate in a similar manner to other sharing apps?
Welectrify is a social media driven e.mobility platform. We are helping people and friends in groups to get from A to B. We are not another car sharing or car rental app or similar to any car manufacturer. It is more personal. Welectrify is about your community and your friends. Welectrify is like Facebook, Uber and Air BNB combined. What flats are at Air BNB are the electric cars at Welectrify.
