Zevo Launches EV Carsharing Platform in Texas
To build its network of host vehicles, Zevo is offering the first 100 EV hosts in Dallas and Austin with up to $1,000 in rewards, along with free charging for a year.
Zevo Corp., a peer-to-peer electric-vehicle sharing platform, has launched a ground transportation solution that creates a marketplace where users and hosts connect for an emission-free carsharing experience.
Zevo is seeking electric vehicle owners in Dallas and Austin to join as hosts to support its national expansion plan, starting with a Q2 rollout in those cities.
Founded in 2021, Zevo is an acronym for "zero emission vehicle organization." The company’s mission is to change the way that people view vehicle ownership and relate to ground transportation.
The Zevo platform offers users access to EVs by the hour, the week, or even a month. Interaction is automated, eliminating the need for traditional rental car reservations and fees. To build its network of host vehicles, Zevo is offering the first 100 EV hosts in Dallas and Austin to sign up their vehicle with up to $1,000 in rewards, along with free charging for a year.
"Owners of EVs are sitting on an asset, and we want to incentivize them to help make a difference while also putting money in their pocket," said Hebron Sher, founder and CEO of Zevo. "Ideally, we'd love to see people running their own business, providing small fleets of EVs, offering users more access, and making a difference for their community and the environment."
To jumpstart its presence in these markets, Zevo will add its own vehicles for early users to use as well as roughly five superchargers within metro areas. It will also work with local businesses to create parking spots as "exchange points."
Zevo plans to expand to future markets, including the Los Angeles area and San Francisco Bay area.
