Hyundai to launch EV sharing scheme in Amsterdam

Hyundai Motor will launch a car sharing programme in Amsterdam next month, with a fleet of 100 Ioniq Electric vehicles available for use around the city.

Hyundai Ioniq Amsterdam car share

Hyundai will offer 100 shared Ioniqs in Amsterdam.

Announced at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the fleet will be available following an inauguration ceremony on 5 October. The cars offer a range of 175 miles to a charge, with 80% replenished in around 23 minutes using a rapid charger.

Hyundai Motor said Amsterdam had been chosen because of its widespread charging infrastructure, comprising over 2,200 points, and for its target to become CO2 neutral by 2025, which was said to resonate with the carmaker’s sustainability strategy.

It’s not the first electric car sharing fleet in the city; in 2011 Daimler introduced a fleet of electric Smart ForTwos in Amsterdam, under its Car2Go brand.

The company already supports car sharing programmes with Linde Group in Munich, using the ix35 Fuel Cell SUV.

Further details of the scheme in Amsterdam will be announced at the launch event.
