The MUVe Now rideshare concept, powered by Modul University Vienna, consists of a fleet of electric mopeds in two different sizes – a smaller version for quick city trips and a larger version which can be used for making deliveries, transporting small items or city hopping with friends.
These vehicles have been specially configured with a purpose-built app so they can be easily rented and controlled by the user from their smartphone.
Not like the average rideshare, the applied rental model is intended to promote longer-term leasing over per-minute arrangements, which often cause city mobility concepts to be considered nuisance services by the general public.
The intention behind the MUVe Now moped rental model is that a student might rent the vehicle over a period of several weeks, which will increase the proper care, usage and storage of the vehicle.
The vehicles can be equipped with two batteries which can be charged at home using a normal household plug socket for extra convenience.
