Hyundai will launch its new Mocean Carshare business in Los Angeles before the end of the year in partnership with platform provider Vulog.
Vulog’s AiMA mobility service platform incorporates fleet management tools, consumer-facing mobile applications and in-vehicle connected technology.
Customers using the AiMA technology can locate, book and unlock vehicles through their smartphones.
This latest deal with Hyundai now takes Vulog’s presence to over 30 cities used by different vehicle manufacturer partners, including Volkswagen, Kia and PSA Group.
Vulog forecasts it will launch AiMA in 20 to 30 new markets in 2020. Vulog already has partnerships with WeShare (VW), Wible (Kia), Free2Move (Groupe PSA), Aimo (Sumitomo Corporation) and Evo (British Columbia Automobile Association).
VW launched its WeShare car sharing division with Vulog in Berlin last summer with a fleet of 1,500 e-Golfs and 500 e-up! cars. VW is due to expand WeShare into more cities like Prague,, Hamburg and across Europe.
