Renault and IKEA car-share

Renault Mobility and IKEA France have signed a partnership to offer consumers a car rental that is available 24/7.

Having set themselves the goal of offering 100% electric vehicles to the company’s consumers and customers by 2020, IKEA France and Renault are continuing to roll out new adapted, functional services that promote sustainable mobility.

The Renault Mobility self-service car rental service, which is debuting at the IKEA Paris-Villiers store, will gradually be rolled out to all IKEA stores in France by September 2018. In total, nearly 300 private and commercial vehicles will be made available to the public at the stores. Initially, the vehicles for hire will be both electric and ICE depending on the charging infrastructure available on-site. This will make way for an all-electric fleet by 2020.

Renault Mobility is already present throughout France with 180 self-service vehicle rental fleets available 24/7 both within the Renault network and at other locations in city centres, public parking lots and other sites.

‘With this new partnership, we are looking to provide consumers with a service that enhances our accessibility and complements our existing offer. Fast, easy to use and at an attractive price, this new rental service allows users to adopt a simple mode of transport with, eventually, a fleet comprising 100 per cent electric vehicles. This demonstrates our commitment to a more sustainable way of life,’ said Vicente Cubells, director of customer relations at IKEA France.
