EkoRent to Viikki: Get driving time in an electric vehicle!
EkoRent is a rental service for electric vehicles that provides a car when you need it - you simply pay for the hours you use the vehicle. New electric vehicle infrastructure (car pickup / drop-off) points are now being crowdfunded in the Viikki and the Teurastamo districts of Helsinki.
On this campaign page you can crowdfund the new Viikki shopping center pickup / drop off point. By crowdfunding you will get access to emissions-free driving starting from only 5 euros/hour. These driving hours can be used at any of EkoRent’s pickup / drop off points across the city and you’ll be contributing to cleaner traffic.
EkoRent offers an environmentally friendly and low-cost alternative to owning a vehicle. You’ll have access to an electric vehicle when you need it, be it for a client meeting, a trip to your grandparents or a regular shopping expedition to the local supermarket. Whatever your need, a shared electric vehicle is an alternative that’s affordable and easy to use.
All cars in the EkoRent fleet are at your disposal and you can pick up a car from the pickup / drop-off point most convenient for you.
By participating, you’ll be driving cheaper than ever before and you are not limited to just using the pickup / drop-off points we’re crowdfunding. You can use any of the EkoRent pickup / drop-off points across the whole of the city as shown in the map.
EkoRent commits to establish a pickup / drop-off point at all sites that reach the minimum funding limit. If the funding goal is reached, the costs of two charging posts including installation and the costs of taking a new electric vehicle into use will be covered.
If the minimum amount is not reached, your money will be returned to you in full within a week from the campaign end date.
