Press release -
NEVS becomes partner of Ezeride
NEVS becomes part owner of the startup company Ezeride. In connection to this, Ezeride takes over the ownership of NEVS’ carsharing service NEVS Share. The aim is for Ezeride to further develop the service and create new business opportunities through combining it together with their own shared mobility services.
Car sharing is growing fast in many parts of the world, and more and more car owners realize it is both unsustainable and uneconomic to use a privately-owned car which on an average is used only 5% of the day. In the past year NEVS has carried out several successful pilots with the service NEVS Share in both the south of Stockholm and in the city of Trollhättan. By becoming a partner of Ezeride, NEVS will be able to hand over a complete and well tested product to Ezeride for continued commercialization and development.
”Through Ezeride we will be able to complement the mobility and shared vehicles offer at the same as we at NEVS can continue to focus on our core business which consists of developing electric cars and our mobility system PONS with autonomous electric vehicles,” says Stefan Tilk, CEO of NEVS.
”We are very happy to have the opportunity to further develop NEVS carsharing service. It will be a good complement to our product portfolio. Car sharing is the future for our transportation needs and for us to be able to create a more sustainable society. The collaboration with NEVS will give us the opportunity of more rapid progress,” says John Olausson, CEO of Ezeride.
Ezeride is a new and exciting company which complements NEVS’ vision of sustainable mobility. The business develops services for shared mobility with help of AI technology. NEVS Share will after the take-over be marketed under another name.
