Muro, Algaida, and Santa Margalida join the car-sharing project and already have a 100% electric Hyundai Kona available to all residents of the three municipalities
Hyundai Proa Automoción facilitates mobility in Mallorca. Following the success of the pilot project in Campisábalos (Guadalajara), Hyundai continues with the expansion plan of VIVe, the first 100% electric car-sharing service, proposing a new transportation alternative for rural areas throughout Spain. VIVe is positioned as the sustainable mobility offer and is adapted to the particularities and needs of these environments.
Residents registered in Muro, Algaida, and Santa Margalida, already have at their disposal a 100% electric Hyundai Kona that will allow them to move easily for everyday tasks such as shopping or banking, thanks to this shared transport alternative. With the 100% electric and emission-free technology of this model, the inhabitants of these municipalities will be able to move around the area while respecting the natural environment of the island of Mallorca.
This initiative arises from Hyundai’s commitment to offering mobility solutions and alternatives that respond to the demands of society and, above all, that are accessible to all.
At present, the towns of Mallorca face important problems of communication and provision of services, so the need for adequate transport to these needs is an extremely important aspect for the residents of these municipalities. With VIVe, Hyundai lays the foundations to create a sustainable mobility network for the island of Mallorca.
The start-up of the service in Muro, Algaida, and Santa Margalida represents a further step in Vive’s expansion plan, whose forecast is to have more than 40 adhered towns by the end of this year and reach 80 by the end of 2021.
VIVe: Hyundai’s rural carsharing in one click
Any municipality with less than 10,000 inhabitants may request the arrival of this new shared and clean mobility at the nearest Hyundai dealership. The brand’s dealer network will be in charge of making the service available, as well as offering the necessary support for its implementation.
With this service, the residents registered in the localities adhered to VIVe will be able to enjoy the service for free, in the first phase, for three months. After this period, the service will begin to be paid and anyone who approaches the municipality will be able to use the vehicle through the VIVe App, developed and created exclusively for this initiative by Dealer Best. Through this platform, users will be able to easily manage the vehicle reservation and unlock it for use, as well as report any damage or access the available fleet. In addition, this App supervises the correct use of the service, for example, limiting movements within a radius of up to 150 km.
Additionally, Hyundai will be responsible for the installation of a recharging point in the town, which will also serve as a point of delivery and collection of the vehicle.
The arrival of this new transport concept is one more example of the responsibility of Hyundai and Proa Automoción with the environment and its objective as a provider of mobility services, to humanize its products by bringing its pioneering technology closer to through real, concrete and adapted to all needs and demands.
Hyundai Kona: ECO range
The Hyundai KONA is a compact electric SUV that offers great autonomy, with 484km in combined use and 660km in the city. Due to its design and performance as an all-road model, they allow this vehicle to adapt to the particularities of the island of Mallorca as it is an ideal car for both urban and rural areas.
Hyundai is consolidated as a benchmark in eco-mobility, not only because it is the only brand in the market with the five electric technologies available, but also demonstrates its leadership and commitment by creating and expanding new sustainable transport models, which respond to the needs of society in a simple and inclusive way.
