Customers who use Klimaan’s electric shared cars will pay slightly less for them from February 15. Due to the decreased electricity prices, the cooperative can also implement a price decrease. From then on, users will pay 28 euro cents per kilometer instead of 33.
The energy cooperative Klimaan has many projects underway around sustainability and green energy. One of these is offering electric shared cars in the Mechelen region. There are currently 23 vehicles available and at least ten more will be added in the coming months. Users of those cars will have to pay slightly less from February 15. This is due to electricity prices that have steadily fallen.
“While other suppliers of shared cars are dependent on the prices of fossil fuels, we are dependent on the electricity price and the rates of public charging stations,” says Tim Hermans of Klimaan. “Fortunately, the uncertain electricity prices with large price fluctuations seem to be behind us for the time being. In addition, the public charging station market has become more competitive, causing the price to drop and become more stable.”
Klimaan therefore has lower costs and this is converted into a price drop for users. “From February 15, you will pay 28 euro cents per kilometer and 3 euros per hour to use a Klimaan shared car. That is a decrease of five cents per kilometer. “We consciously opt for a simple rate without subscription costs and regardless of the vehicle type. With this we aim for transparency,” says Hermans.
“Our choice for 100% electric shared cars is fully in line with Klimaan’s mission: accelerating the energy transition and making sustainable mobility accessible to everyone,” it said. “Electric shared mobility also has many advantages. By sharing, fewer cars are needed and the cars that do drive do so on electricity, which is better for the environment and the climate. (svds)
