EV fleet management company (eFMC) Envoy Technologies, Inc. announced in a statement it has partnered with Inspiration Fleet to accelerate the national expansion of Envoy’s electric-only car sharing service. Inspiration provides a variety of electric vehicles, including all Tesla models, Porsche Taycan, Mercedes EQS, Polestar 2, and Chevy Bolts with additional vehicles to be added as demand requires.
Envoy is a community-based electric car sharing service and platform that offers electric vehicles as an amenity to apartments, hotels, and workplaces. The company's electric vehicles are located at properties with dedicated parking spaces and EV charging stations and can be reserved through the Envoy Mobility car sharing app.
Envoy is a full turnkey solution providing education, support, and access to e-mobility, especially at multifamily properties, a current hurdle of EV adoption, making it affordable for properties to offer eco-friendly cars to residents and guests. With current high demand and a limited supply chain, the partnership with Inspiration will allow Envoy to launch cars at multiple properties across the U.S. on schedule.
Inspiration partners with major auto manufacturers, charging networks, and fleet service providers to finance, deliver, and manage the transition to all-electric fleets.
“Electric mobility will become the standard of living for residents and guests at multifamily properties in the very near future,” said Ori Sagie, CEO and co-founder of Envoy Technologies in the statement. “Our partnership with Inspiration allows us to continue to fulfill that demand with the latest and greatest EVs, even in a challenging supply environment.”
“Inspiration is on a mission to accelerate the adoption of EVs,” added Josh Green, CEO of Inspiration. “By offering on-demand access to EVs parked onsite, Envoy frees consumers from the need to own a vehicle or worry about charging infrastructure. We believe this will lead to greater awareness, experience, and ultimately adoption of EVs.”
Since its inception in 2017, Envoy has deployed about 300 electric vehicles at 150 multifamily properties and office buildings and installed about 150 charging stations. Envoy is available across the U.S. including California, Oregon, Washington, New York, Florida, Washington D.C., Massachusetts, Nevada, and Illinois.
