We have launched our B2C “Product-as-a-Service” solution for Personal Light Electric Vehicles (PLEV’s), starting with electric kick scooters. We deliver hassle-free, ‘sustainable’ solutions that do not require upfront investment or any commitment. We remove the barriers in front of ownership of new mobility devices, which lack repair options and a reliable customer service – by offering free maintenance, repair and an excellent service. Majority of our clients use our devices for daily commuting (>90%) and live outside city centers (suburbs and rural areas, >75%). In addition to our direct-to-consumer proposition, we are currently exploring B2B solutions for corporate employees and various partnerships with car leasing companies and public transport operators.

Why they joined the co.mobility ecosystem?

We live in an era with a luxury of having so many mobility options present, yet many of these solutions are still disconnected from each other. We believe that by combining the know-how and the expertise of regional operators, corporates, mobility firms and startups, we can tackle the mobility challenges of Belgium through collaborative innovation. Each partner comes with a specific expertise, filling different pieces of the entire puzzle. Hence, working together in such a dedicated ecosystem has an enormous value to bring creative solutions to “real” mobility challenges of today.
