The auto manufacturing company has announced its Volkswagen WeShare program, which will be a car sharing program exclusively for electric vehicles. The program will initially be launched in Berlin, with 1,500 cars, all of which are Volkswagen e-Golfs. 500 additional cars are said to be added to the program by next year, which will be Volkswagen e-up! models.
The Volkswagen WeShare program will also handle charging costs to the vehicles, which will be available on-demand. The cars will not have set locations for pick up and drop off, instead, they will have a "free-floating arrangement." This means that users can drop off or pick up a car anywhere public parking is available. This makes a more convenient experience for consumers, however, this model is harder on the company due to logistical reasons.
