INTERNATIONAL | Swiss Car-sharing goes electric
By 2030 at the latest, the Swiss car-sharing company Mobility wants to convert its fleet of nearly 3,000 cars to emission-free electric drive. At the same time, the e-charging infrastructure is to be expanded rapidly. In a first step, at least 300 e-charging stations are to be put into operation at Mobility locations throughout Switzerland within the next three years.
Mobility is working with Juice Technology to implement this ambitious plan. The charging station manufacturer has already equipped the first parking spaces for Mobility with charging infrastructure in Zurich and Aarau at the end of 2020 in a cooperation with SBB, Mobility’s largest and most important location partner.
“We are proud to be able to support Mobility on its way to emission-free car-sharing and the electrification of its vehicle fleet. Our joint launch at SBB car parks has shown that innovative charging technology and quality clearly prove their worth. We look forward to continuing our partnership beyond locations near railway stations,” says Christoph Erni, CEO of Juice Technology AG. Juice Technology supplies the JUICE CHARGER 2 AC charging stations for the electrification of the Mobility sites.
“The biggest hurdle in the electrification of our fleet is the development of an e-charging network. That is why we have brought experienced partners like Juice on board to be able to implement this project and push ahead with the expansion as quickly as possible,” says Roland Lötscher, Managing Director at Mobility. “The future belongs to e-mobility and we want to lead the way.”
