Following the introduction in the UK and Spain, Hyundai is starting to introduce its global mobility brand Mocean in the Netherlands as well. The company is about to launch a residential car-sharing service that will be available to residents of a new housing complex in Utrecht. This pilot project will be run by Hyundai in collaboration with local mobility partner We Drive Solar.
In the Netherlands, alternative mobility solutions have become increasingly important for the most central districts of cities in recent years. In response to this local need, Hyundai is launching a pilot residential car-sharing project in the city of Utrecht, which will be available to the inhabitants of a new residential complex in the Leidsche Rijn district. The car-sharing program will be operated under Hyundai’s global Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) brand, Mocean, in partnership with We Drive Solar, a leading local partner integrating innovative mobility solutions and energy systems . Both companies are planning to cooperate on a long-term basis and intend to expand the project to other residential areas in Utrecht, as well as other cities in the Netherlands, in the coming years. “This residential car-sharing program in the Netherlands marks the next stage in the development of our Mocean mobility brand in Europe,” said Ulrich Mechau, VP of Sales at Hyundai Motor Europe.
“Through this pilot project, we will demonstrate that zero-emission models, such as IONIQ 5, will play a vital role in helping to reduce congestion and pollution in inner cities.” The sustainable housing development that will serve as a test bed for this project consists of 125 apartments. To meet the collective needs of the complex’s residents, Hyundai will be making its Ioniq 5 available, bookable via a mobile application. The pilot project will work on a subscription basis. Each home within the residential complex will receive a five-hour per month IONIQ 5 trial package, which can be activated at any time. After activation, the five hours can be divided into several trips. Residents who join the service and who wish to extend their use beyond the basic package, can upgrade to another subscription model, which can include up to 192 hours per month. “With this further extension of the Mocean service, Hyundai is once again demonstrating its leadership in zero-emission mobility solutions,” said Liran Golan, Head of Future Mobility at Hyundai Motor Europe. “This project is the perfect example of how Hyundai connects its mobility services with a fully electric fleet and supports communities in sustainable development.”
