Stuttgart, 09.10.2017. From October 9 to 11, 2017 the EVS30 – Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition – the biggest exhibition and congress event for electromobility is held in Stuttgart. The moovel Group is part of Daimler’s booth in Hall 1 with its products, moovel App and moovel transit. Visitors can obtain information about mobility services and get a 5€ voucher from moovel.
EVS30 is the industry meeting point for the entire electromobility industry. Every 12 to 18 months, the event rotates between North America, Europe and Asia.
From October 9 to 11, 2017, the biggest exhibition and congress event for electromobility is held in the birth place of the automobile. At the Trade Fair Stuttgart, manufacturers, researchers and government representatives from around the world gather for the latest update on all aspects of electromobility. As main partner Daimler presents various future technologies around electromobility. Moreover, both mobility services car2go and moovel are represented as part of the Daimler booth in Hall 1.
For years Daimler has been evolving from an automobile manufacturer to a provider of mobility, and is thereby systematically implementing its CASE strategy. The four letters stand for the mobility topics of the future: "Connected", "Autonomous", "Shared & Services" and "Electric". At Daimler Financial Services, "Shared & Services" is the consolidation of all mobility services - from carsharing (car2go) to ride hailing (mytaxi) and mobility platform (moovel).
Mercedes-Benz is systematically continuing to strengthen its leading position as a provider of digital mobility services: In the first half of 2017, the worldwide number of customers using digital mobility services such as car2go (global market leader in free-floating carsharing), mytaxi (market leader in Europe) or moovel more than doubled. Daimler also has shareholdings in Blacklane, Careem, FlixBus, Turo and Via. 15 million customers are registered with the Daimler mobility services operating in more than 100 cities in Europe, North America and China.
The strong growth of the mobility services has been assisted by the acquisition of Clever Taxi (Romania) and Taxibeat (Greece/Peru). With 9.2 million users, mytaxi is the number one taxi app provider in Europe. car2go is likewise increasing its customer numbers, and is the world market leader in the carsharing segment with 2.8 million users. The mobility platform moovel creates an operating system for urban mobility, and provides on-demand access to a variety of mobility packages - including booking and payment. All in all, more than 3 million customers in Germany and the USA use the moovel products.
moovel: Mobility search, booking and payment by just one app
The aim of moovel Group GmbH is to make mobility easier in the cities. It is working on a form of "operating system for urban mobility" which offers access to suitable mobility options and prepares the way for a future with autonomous vehicles. More than 3 million customers use the moovel products, and a transaction is carried out via the mobility app every 2 seconds.
The free moovel mobility app for iOS and Android brings together local public transport, the car sharing provider car2go, mytaxi, hire bikes and Deutsche Bahn trains. Most offers can be directly booked and paid for in the app.
In August 2017 the moovel Group acquired Hamburger Familonet GmbH, the provider of the location messenger app Familonet. This gives access to expertise in the areas of geofencing and live locating, so as to develop solutions for the urban mobility of the future.
moovel transit: Mobile ticketing solutions for transport organisations and operators
The moovel Group's moovel transit product portfolio offers white label solutions for transport operators and organisations worldwide. The mobile ticket applications of moovel N.A. are used by 16 transport operators in the USA, and enable customers to purchase tickets for public transport by smartphone. This makes moovel N.A. the leading provider of mobile ticket technology for US ticket apps.
In May 2017, moovel together with the Karlsruhe Transport Association KVV brought the joint mobility app "KVV.mobil powered by moovel" to market. The app shows the connections and departure times of buses and trains from all 1900 stops in the KVV area, as well as available rental bikes provided by the regional bikesharing provider "Fächerrad", a service by Nextbike, and vehicles from the carsharing provider Stadtmobil. With this new application, moovel Group GmbH is expanding its business model in Germany with a white label solution for transport organisations and operators.
