Volkswagen to launch zero-emission car sharing services


Volkswagen plans to launch all-electric car sharing services. The carmaker said the platform dubbed “WE” will start rolling out various on-demand services in Germany in 2019. “These services are to be extended to major cities in Europe, North America and Asia as early as 2020,” according to Volkswagen. Apart from car sharing, the service could also include “micro-mobility solutions” such as electric scooters.
