ELMO — Electric Carsharing Launching In Poland!
Carsharing has taken the world by storm and continues to grow at a rapid pace. Electric cars are even hotter. But Poland has been left out in the cold. There’s little opportunity to use a carsharing network in the country, and Poland has only a tiny electric car market.
This is illogical for several reasons:
- Poland’s dense and centrally oriented cities are ideal for carsharing.
- Great mass transit options (like Poland has) and walkable neighborhoods (like Poland has) are a great complement to carsharing and help to enable it.
- The low “fuel” and maintenance costs are ideal for everyone, especially for people without money to throw around on Maseratis, Lamborghinis, and Range Rovers.
- Polish professionals are at the forefront of tech development, so should be on the forefront of the electric carsharing market as well!
Luckily, things are a changing, and several Polish leaders are looking to propel Poland to the front of the class in this young market.
A couple of Polish cities — Wrocław and Kraków — are persuading electric carsharing companies to launch within their borders. The Polish government has started prioritizing electric car adoption. EV battery giant LG Chem is even launching a large battery factory next to Wrocław. And CleanTechnica‘s Cleantech Revolution Tour has arrived in Wrocław and is planned for other Polish cities.
Now, we are happy to announce that ELMO (Electric Mobility) is launching in Poland! We aim to more quickly bring electric carsharing to cities across the country. Stay tuned for more information and opportunities in the coming weeks.
