Currently, a large number of company cars are used in Austria, many of them are assigned to individuals. As a result, most of these vehicles have different requirements. These vehicles should be usable both, for short and long distances, as well as for private and official purposes. As a result, battery electric cars have hardly been considered as company vehicles. Financial relief for electric vehicles came into force as part of the tax reform from 1st of January 2016. Corresponding to that, innovative company mobility concepts and the use of electric vehicles in the corporate environment will become much more attractive for companies.
The project will develop a car-sharing technology designed to promote the intelligent and convenient use of electric cars in fleets, car-sharing and carpooling models. Not only CO2 emissions should be reduced, but also the green fleet shall be economically viable, especially in connection with alternative traffic modes.
An easy-to-use booking and billing system is being developed that optimizes vehicle allocation and charging with integrated route, touring and loading planning. Intelligently-controlled backup batteries maximize the use of renewable energy and reduce the costs of line infrastructure and electrical connections.
The solutions are then tested in some companies. The goals are the acceptance of users, a 40% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and an economically viable operation.
