A carsharing service based on small nestable EVs for last-mile access to remote destinations in complement to public transport

February 2023


Kiwee mobility solution aims to reduce the need/use of private cars by complementing public transport or carpooling, including the lastmile. For the user, Kiwee carsharing consists of small individual electric vehicles available to users on a self-service basis, 24/7, station-based or free floating, available without a driving license. Kiwee cars can carry 2 passengers and are designed for everyday use (child booster, storage space), robust and easy to clean. Their design protects users from poor and cold weather. For the operator, KIWEE cars can nest into a 10-unit roadtrain, drastically improving the efficiency of redistribution, charging and parking - 1 driver / 1 charging station for 10 units. Efficient redistribution ensures a high quality of service, including for the user finding a car at the right place in the right time. Kiwee will be proposed for proximity mobiliyt, in city centers and suburban areas to cover the first/last miles of a journey using individual vehicles.

The environmental benefits

  • 1 single-driver to redistribute up to 10 Kiwee cars as a roadtrain.
  • 1 single standard charging point (7 kWh) for 10 nested Kiwee cars.
  • When driven in groups, the towed Kiwee vehicles follow the same trajectory as the first one
  • Commuting by Public Transport and Kiwee (rather than one's own private car) reduces CO2 emissions by 70% in average in Europe
  • Commuting by Public Transport and Kiwee (rather than one's own private car) reduces energy consumption by 90%
  • Kiwee cars only weigh 400Kg: they use 3 times less resources than a conventional car

The Financial benefits

  • Commuting by Public Transport + Kiwee (rather than one's own private car) will cut commuting budget at least by a factor 2, at most by 7
  • Using Public Transport + Kiwee (rather than one's own private car) redirects the initial travel budget, on average 6000€/year, to local community economy towards local consumption and employment
  • Do not waste your time in your car trapped in congestion, use public transport + Kiwee! Roughly 40 minutes gained every day !
