Shell launches a rental service dedicated to electric cars

Sustainable mobility continues to be the undisputed protagonist of urban travel. The great Anglo-Dutch oil giant has launched a new rental service dedicated exclusively to new electric cars. The service, currently present in Germany, has been called Shell Recharge Auto-Abo.

The subscription service platform offers users three subscription periods, 6, 12 and 24 months and, inevitably, depending on of the choice made by the user the cost will also vary. The options made available by Shell include, for example, the Fiat 500e Icon, proposed at a cost of € 289 per month with a € 20 Shell recharge voucher included and the Mercedes EQC AMG Line which instead requires a cost starting from 879. euro.

With Shell Recharge Auto Abo, we are expanding our commitment to cleaner mobility in partnership with Fleetpool: the free Shell Recharge app, which you can use with your Auto Abo, gives you access to more 200,000 charging stations in Europe. So you are always well stocked on the go, even if you don't have a charging option at home.

It is no coincidence that the new service includes registration, maintenance, seasonal tire change, vehicle checks, taxes and insurance. At the expense of users, the giant leaves only recharging, which can also be done through the Shell Recharge app.

The more customers choose an electric vehicle, the more likely they are to reduce CO2 emissions in the transport sector. We want to help people make the switch by enabling them to charge cars with 100% green electricity at all Shell Recharge fast-charging stations, commented Jan Toschka, head of Shell service stations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The rental service dedicated to electric cars represents for the Anglo-Dutch multinational a further step forward in promoting a greener and more responsible mobility. Let's not forget that in order to face the criticalities of the charging infrastructures fundamental for the diffusion of e-sharing and electric mobility in general, the company has started a real transition process with the formalization of the purchase of Ubitricity, Britain's largest public charging network.
