IBERDROLA is the first Spanish company to launch an electric car sharing service that will allow the company's employees to use Think City vehicles to perform commercial transactions in Madrid, Bilbao, Sevilla, Valencia and Valladolid.
This initiative, which follows an agreement with Going Green, is in line with the company's firm commitment towards electric mobility and part of the process towards the gradual electrification of its corporate fleet. It also ratifies IBERDROLA's commitment towards sustainable development and the environment.
These new electric cars will be equipped with a digital system that will enable the monitoring of its main user settings. Users will be given an individualised card to access the service and a system for bookings and responding to queries and exceptions via an advanced website, which will also provide information on vehicle availability and features in order to promote appropriate use by drivers.
To quote Aitor Moso, Sales Manager at IBERDROLA, "our aim is to contribute towards the use of electric vehicles in the company and to promote the implementation of specific initiatives that can make sustainability mobility a reality. We believe that the future of this type of mobility is not based on taking isolated initiatives, but rather on building up a corporate policy around this trend”.
In turn, Gonzalo Alonso, Managing Director of Going Green, explained that “IBERDROLA is an example to be followed, because it is a company that is firmly committed to sustainability and the roll-out of electric vehicles in our country. We are convinced that other major groups will join this advanced mobility model too”.
The project is part of IBERDROLA's Green Mobility Plan, which includes a comprehensive commercial solution providing electric vehicles, the installation of charging points, finance and the supply of 100% renewable Green Energy.
The use of zero emissions vehicles for use in professional tasks by employees in IBERDROLA's Sales Division will enable the company to reduce the emission of up to 12,600 tonnes of CO2
Think City is the best-selling electric car in the world. Clearly intended for urban use and manufactured according to high quality standards, it is a safe, environmentally-friendly vehicle with a good electric range. This car does not emit any polluting gases. It also reduces noise pollution levels and is highly recyclable: 16% of the materials used to manufacture this model are recycled and 95% of the materials used in the vehicles are recyclable. The vehicles to be used by IBERDROLA's sales personnel will be either 2- or 4-seater cars, with an electric range of up to 203 kilometres.
