Now that the company has launched in Austria, GreenMobility aims to enter Antwerp, Malmö, and Gothenburg, where it hopes to launch local operations.
The ÖAMTC is the biggest car club within Austria and currently boasts 2.2 million members. In 2018 the club started up ÖAMTC Easy Way, a shared electric moped platform with a fleet of 315 mopeds in Graz and Vienna. The two partners will look to integrate their services and start a mobility sharing service where consumers can select from several kinds of electric vehicles.
The two also want to pool their resources and experience to further developer and market new mobility services that provide value to consumers living within cities and urban areas.
Along with this new agreement, GreenMobility was recently approved to be an operator and was invited to be added into Vienna's public transportation platform, WienMobil.
Vienna is very focused on providing shared mobility and believes the benefits from these new services will help to create an improved public transportation system. The WienMobil platform aims to reduce the amount of privately owned cars within the city and also reduce traffic. GreenMobility's electric vehicle sharing platform will be added onto the 160,000 consumers already using WienMobil who can then reserve the vehicles they wish to use through the platform.
“Vienna is a perfect city for GreenMobility. There is a strong political support for shared mobility, and with close to 2 million inhabitants there is a solid potential customer base. The strong brand and member base of ÖAMTC combined with the fact that we will be included in the WienMobil platform makes me confident that our green shared mobility solution is well-positioned to take its fair share of the market,” said GreenMobility CEO Thomas Heltborg Juul.
GreenMobility aims to launch its operations within Vienna with around 400 electric vehicles.
No specific date has been set due to several potential factors but it is expected to launch sometime later this year.
