Wattmobile will deploy from this year in France. Each station will offer up to 10 vehicles - located in parking stations they are indeed limited to 10 charging ports by the regulation.
Vehicles are Renault Twizy (6) and 50 or 125cc electric scooters (4) for ranges of 60 to 80km.
The first inauguration will take place next June 19 simultaneously in four train stations: Lille, Paris Gare de Lyon, Marseille and Lyon. Barely a month later, four other stations will open in Paris Gare de l'Est, Grenoble and Bordeaux for a total of 20 stations (6 in Paris) in 15 cities.
The user reserves on internet and retrieves his vehicle thanks to an RFID card that is used to start the vehicle without key and even remotely in case the card is lost. To develop this technology, buy the vehicles and build the stations, Wattmobile teamed with FullCharger and raised €1.5million!
For its development, Wattmobile is thinking about London, Brussels, companies, business centers (project study with Regus) and hotels who want to offer a dedicated carsharing service.
