Carsharing company Free2move is supporting the transition toward electrification. At the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Free2move showcased the Fiat 500e. As part of its mission to make EVs more accessible, Free2move envisions the Fiat 500e as the new flagship offering for its free-floating and subscription car services across the U.S. and Europe.
While Free2move continues to expand across the U.S., the group is already established in Europe. After recently acquiring Share Now, a Europe-based free-floating carsharing service, Free2move now has more than 450,000 rental cars available in Europe. The company plans to open 200 more Mobility Hubs around the world by 2030.
Currently in the U.S., Free2move offers carsharing services via its Mobility Hubs in Washington D.C., Denver, Portland, and Columbus and has its subscription program in Austin, Los Angeles, and San Diego. In early 2023, Free2move will open additional Mobility Hubs in Dallas and Pasadena, Calif.
By the end of 2023, Free2move plans to offer new dealership programs, which includes its carsharing, rental, and subscription services. Each dealership also receives Free2move fleet management tools and support from the Free2move team.
These dealership programs will be offered at two levels:
- Free2move Mobility Corner: the first step for dealers to enter the Free2move business with the ability to put their vehicles into rent and car subscription services.
- Free2move Mobility Operator: the next level for dealership services, which includes rental options, special access to Stellantis vehicles, and increased online visibility.
Free2move expects to rapidly roll out these programs across the U.S. – adding five cities to the mix by the end of this year. For 2023, the company’s goals include 38 new Free2move Mobility Operators and 30 new Free2move Mobility Corners as well as an additional 3,000 cars to the service. Initial cities targeted include Denver, Portland, Columbus, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Detroit, Dallas, Miami, Chicago, and Tampa.
