EV Mobility Offers Electric Car-Sharing in San Francisco

EV Mobility, an all-electric car-sharing platform that provides electric vehicles as an amenity to hotels, apartment buildings and commercial buildings, has been certified to operate within San Francisco.

The company provides on-demand electric vehicles through its mobile app and has already deployed vehicles at four properties in San Francisco since its approval. Its cars are already operating in Chorus Apartments, The Landing, Konrad on the Park, and 923 Folsom Apartments, with many more locations planned.

Ramy El-Batrawi, CEO of EV Mobility said:

“We are excited about being part of this programme, it took more than 6 months, a lot of work and cost to get to be a certified car-share provider for the City of San Francisco. 50% of the residences in San Francisco do not own cars, which makes it a perfect city for car-share. With the city already requiring 564 spots to have a car-share vehicle and more to come, EV Mobility can grow rapidly within the city.

“We have already installed chargers and EVs in 4 properties, which have quickly become some of the highest utilised and highest revenue per vehicle in our fleet. Working with the City we plan to deploy all the required car-share spaces under the code.”

To operate as a car-sharing platform, EV Mobility had to be approved by the San Francisco Planning Department as a certified car-share organisation in line with Planning Section 166.

The company had to submit a written report by an independent third-party institution that clearly demonstrated that it had met two or more environmental performance goals in any market where they have operated for at least two years.

Only four approved car-sharing organisations operate in San Francisco under this programme at this time, and EV Mobility is currently unique in only operating electric vehicles.

In spite of the certification process that EV Mobility called ‘extensive’, it also felt that San Francisco was a beneficial city in which to operate a car-sharing platform.

This is because properties built under Code 166 are required to include a car-sharing service in the building. These car-share spaces only satisfy the Code requirements if they are made available to certified organisations at no cost.
