PSA Peugeot Citroën is a shareholder of Wedrive, the first commuter carsharing service based on creating mobile communities
First partner of Wedrive, PSA Peugeot Citroën is making an investment and strengthens its position as a key player in sustainable mobility. With Wedrive, PSA Peugeot Citroën joins a fresh response to new trends in vehicle use and strengthening its position as a major player in sustainable mobility.
Wedrive is a carsharing service designed to facilitate commuters’ daily journey to and from work. Its unique technology allows users to join a personalised transport community of colleagues, neighbours and friends who travel the same route, providing many more opportunities to car pool.
Accessible via iPhone, Android and BlackBerry, this innovative smartphone service brings essential flexibility and fluidity to the daily commute. Wedrive makes it easy to find drivers or passengers for the morning journey, contact and meet them, organise the return journey and share expenses.
“We were above all convinced by Wedrive’s technology,” said Brigitte Courtehoux, Director of Vehicles and Connected Services Business Unit PSA Peugeot Citroën, “which provides users with a daily travel solution based on social network-type communications. This innovative solution is perfectly aligned with today’s big sharing economy trend. We think that this everyday user application has much greater potential than an occasional carsharing service can offer and we estimate that there are up to 50 million potential users in Europe.”
Cédric Nicolas, Founder of Wedrive, said: “The partnership with PSA Peugeot Citroën has enabled us to scale up our service to launch it nationwide, and then potentially internationally. It means Wedrive could be integrated into other PSA Peugeot Citroën mobility solutions, and we are delighted about the opportunities this will open up.”
PSA Peugeot Citroën has been engaged since 2009 in the new mobility market with the offer of short-term rental MU /Peugeot Rent which now has a fleet of over 5000 vehicles in Europe. PSA Peugeot Citroën also offers the multi portal-modal Multicity Citroën and supply of carsharing in enterprises Share Your Fleet. The Group also provides for certain products in its range the car sharing technology VU Log.
