Volkswagen MOIA Electric Rideshare Car provides Maximum Usage Space for the Passengers

Volkswagen’s MOIA is all-electric car designed to provide maximally usable space for up to six passengers, and will make its official debut in service on roads beginning in Hamburg in 2018, where the company expects to put about 200 cars on the road at first.

The concept is centered around ride sharing, with a design tailor-made for users who will seek to pool their vehicle use. This six-seater vehicle goes above and beyond the typical current electric vehicle, with individual seats in place of bench, and with USB ports and dimmable interior lighting for individual passenger comfort and convenience. There’s built-in onboard Wi-fi, and luggage storage provided not in the rear as you might expect, but up front next to the driver to provide more leg and passenger room in the rear compartment.

Range on the vehicle is around 186 miles based on the global harmonized WLTP testing standards, and it can also recoup up to 80 percent of is charge in just 30 minutes. The entire design and build of the car took only 10 months to get to this point.

Part of the design process of the vehicle involved feedback from a MOIA test of its ride-sharing service, which began in Hanover starting in October of this year, and provided real-time development information for the vehicle components for its new fit-for-purpose vehicle based on the experience of passengers in its pilot fleet of 20 Volkswagen T6 vans.

MOIA also offers a -facing app that allows riders to book trips and pay for their rides. This includes a built-in carpooling algorithm to group passengers on similar routes and maximize usage of the vehicles. To do this, the company is creating something akin to virtual bus stops every 200 to 250 meters throughout the cities it operates in.

The ultimate aim is to gear up for international launches starting in by the end of next year, and moving on to the US by 2025, with multiple potential deployment and operation model in mind depending on the specific needs of municipalities and partners.
