Ikea partners with Renault for car sharing service
Ikea France has signed up Renault Mobility to provide a car sharing service across its stores.
The service launches first at the Paris-Villiers store and will gradually be rolled out to all Ikea stores in France by September 2018, offering nearly 300 passenger and commercial vehicles to hire. This will be followed by an all-electric fleet by 2020.
Renault Mobility already offers a France-wide car sharing service with 180 self-service vehicles available 24/7 both within the Renault network and at other locations in city centres, public parking lots and other sites.
“With this new partnership, we are looking to provide consumers with a service that enhances our accessibility and complements our existing offer. Fast, easy to use and at an attractive price, this new rental service allows users to adopt a simple mode of transport with, eventually, a fleet comprising 100% electric vehicles. This demonstrates our commitment to a more sustainable way of life,” said Vicente Cubells, director of customer relations at Ikea France.For more of the latest industry news, click here.
