Shared electric vehicle service enables more affordable living, since the expensive car parking spots are utilized more efficiently. In the shared resident spaces of Härmälänranta there are many possibilities for common activities and the new shared electric vehicles will allow putting the needs of the residents at the forefront. Saving in the parking construction costs enables residents to meet each other and socialize around the shared services offered to all residents.
We are very happy that Setlementtiasunnot Oy selected the EkoRent service and sets a pioneering example in how sustainable city living is developed. We hope that private car-reducing effects of shared vehicles continue to be considered in the planning of new residential buildings. In our opinion, city living would be best served if city plans encouraged zero-emission transportation. This would develop both living and transportation into an energy efficient and sustainable direction.
Area residents will get access to the EkoRent service after the Härmälänranta block constuction is complete, estimated by the end of 2018.
EkoRent is the leading company in Finland to offer affordable, easy-to-use, zero-emission car rental and sharing services. All our vehicles are 100% electric and completely CO2 emission free. Shared and rented EVs contribute to better, cleaner city air, and save money for its users. Additional bonus of using EkoRent service is the good feeling achieved of making an eco-friendly decision.
