Hyundai is starting its first car sharing project in Amsterdam, which will involve no less than 100 electric Hyundai Ioniqs.
Hyundai did not choose Netherlands for its first car sharing project without a reason. Hyindai claims that relatively low average speeds and flat countryside make it ideal for use of electric cars on distances, which should average up to 280 kilometers per charge. It practically means that a car, stationed in Amsterdam, will be able to reach most of important dutch cities. Netherlands also has very dense network of about 2.200 charging stations, which allow optimal use of electric cars.
Ioniqs, involved in the car sharing service, will also be equiped with 22 kW mobile charging stations, which will, beside charging batteries on the move, also allow intercar charging to help other electric vehicles with depleted batteries.
