SHARE NOW, the market leader and pioneer in free-floating car-sharing, will launch models from the car manufacturer Opel in its German vehicle fleet for the first time in April 2023. The launch expands the SHARE NOW vehicle portfolio and the Stellantis footprint nationally - in addition to the new Opel vehicles, the Peugeot, Fiat, and Citroën brands are already part of the permanent SHARE NOW fleet. With almost 1,200 cars, Opel will account for around a quarter of the SHARE NOW fleet by the end of the year.
Expanded mobility mix for individual needs
With the introduction of the models, SHARE NOW offers new driving experiences geared as closely as possible to the wishes of SHARE NOW customers. "As the European market leader in free-floating car-sharing, we must constantly expand our vehicle fleet with innovative and versatile vehicle models and provide our customers with the best possible offer. With Opel, we have found a partner who can optimally meet our mobility requirements: We fulfill a range of possible uses with the Corsa, Crossland, and Astra models. They are ideal for comfortable city journeys, weekend trips, and short holidays. We also continue to improve stock availability at our locations," says Olivier Reppert, CEO of SHARE NOW.
845 Corsa, 250 Astra, and 100 Crossland for the German fleet
In anticipation of the planned launch, 845 Opel Corsa, 250 Astra, and 100 Crossland will be added to the national vehicle fleet. By the end of 2023, the vehicles are expected to make up around a quarter of the total German fleet.
"We are very pleased to have a visible presence at SHARE NOW. Connectivity, electric mobility, and shared mobility are key factors in the current transformation of the automotive sector. We already offer electrified powertrains in our new, excitingly designed models. Now our customers can buy or lease their Opel and drive it via SHARE NOW," says Opel CEO Florian Huettl.
The Opel Corsa joins the SHARE NOW vehicle category S and the Astra joins the vehicle category M. Modern equipment and technical features such as the automatic parking and lane-keeping assistant make the driving experience safe and comfortable. SHARE NOW Users can rent the Opel Corsa for 0.21 Euro per minute and the Astra for 0.24 Euro per minute.
With the introduction of the Crossland, first-class comfort meets suitability for everyday use: innovative driver assistance systems, sliding rear seats, and a lot of storage space make the compact SUV a family all-rounder ideal for short-city trips and long-term rentals and trips abroad. The Crossland joins the M vehicle category and can be rented for 0.24 euros per minute.
