Vulog launches car-sharing services in Brazil

LDS Group and Vulog announced the launch of the largest one-way carsharing service in Brazil, Urbano Carsharing.

The project will start with a pilot followed by a full launch in September 2017.  The service will officially open to the public with 95 total vehicles – 80 Smart cars and 15 fully electric BMW i3s.

The easy-to-use service operates on a one-way basis, meaning drivers can end the trip anywhere in one of the 35 designated Home Zones (places like Moema, Vila Nova Conceição and Vila Madalena, to name a few) for less than a traditional taxi. On average, users will pay ~R$1.45 per minute.

Through Urbano’s smartphone app, users will be able to locate all available vehicles, reserve a car and unlock its doors. The service is powered by Vulog, and its end-to-end technology solution, including Smartphone Apps, In-Car Technology, and a Back End to operate the service.

Vulog is leading the shared mobility revolution around the world. With this new partnership, the company will be present in ten countries on four continents. Other clients and partners include Evo Car Share in Vancouver, GreenMobility in Copenhagen, PSA in Madrid with emov, and Mevo in New Zealand, etc.
