Latest CO2 regulations and politics towards low-carbon economics are forcing Councils and Governments to accelerate the deployment in cities and many old-towns with old infrastructures.

However cities are not ready now to be smart enough to allow automatized traffic, sustainable vehicles and autonomous driving.

Local laws will trace green—clean areas that will influence the traffic disposition and the transits of many companies and particulars. Accesses to city center and parking areas will become more and more restricted, incurring in fine notification and costs related for vehicles non-zero emissions.

The car-sharing companies are targeting B2C and the majority of SME's are B2B driving gasoil/diesel Vans to working and offering services to their clients located in town-centre.

We would like to address our solution to many professionals who will have to use electrical Vans to increase performances on their business model, and which will be forced suddenly to change their vans or rent these for certain job services.

For this reason, Movildrive offers a first solution, with a superflexible car-rental per minutes, which can be use till our society is ready just for Zero-Emissions vehicles in 2030.


If you have a startup and would like to pitch, please contact Allison Rohe:
