Went to a launch of Mevo the other day.
It’s New Zealand’s first electric car sharing service. Looks pretty nifty.
You use the app to request a vehicle 30 minutes before you need it. It will be waiting in its home space, fully charged. You can then use your smartphone as a key to unlock the car. You then have the car for up to three days.
They have a number of plans, including:
- Pay as you go – $23/hr up to $138 a day
- Weekly – $19/week and then $16/hr up to $96/day
- Lux – $49/week and then $11/hr up to $66/day
Prices aren’t the cheapest at the moment, but as with any new business model, as more people use them, the prices tend to drop.
