Evo Car Share has launched a carsharing command for Amazon Alexa in Canada. Canadian customers can reserve a vehicle with an Alexa-enabled device and an Evo membership.

The Alexa skill is the result of a partnership between Evo Car Share and Apply Digital, a Vancouver-based digital product studio.

Evo members can use the Alexa commands free of charge. In conjunction with the Evo mobile app, Alexa allows members to find a nearby vehicle, book a car in advance, check reservation information, and cancel bookings.

Evo compatibility includes the Amazon Echo and Echo Dot, as well as the Sonos One smart speaker.
