Shared cars available this Autumn
The service operator of electric cars pilot project has changed in August 2019. The OP shared car service will change over from OP to a large domestic leasing company Secto Automotive.
– During the pilot project we had enough time to get good experience regarding the benefits of shared cars and assess the markets maturity in our area for shared cars.
An occupancy rates achieved with our shared cars and feedback from our users have been very positive. The goal is to get the shared cars back in use smoothly through the new operator, says Timo Jokinen from POAS.
POAS shared cars are only in use for POAS own work-related usage until the changeover between operators. Secto is hoping to launch the public rental use of shared cars during Autumn 2019. The head of sales at Secto, Juha Qvick, says that Secto has invested in the shared cars service and its functionality during a long time:
– Shared cars have been talked about a lot publicly, but the service has been difficult to implement practically. With the help of the user community, we have developed our own solution during a long period of time and I think we have managed to pack all the necessary features together into an easy to use, scalable and cost-effective package.
In connection with the change of the service operator, the contract for the rental cars will be renewed. After the change of the operator, POAS shared cars can be hired from familiar home points with old prices. Secto will inform about the new contract at the start of the service.
POAS will announce when the application is launched and shared cars are available for rent again!

Update on 3rd of October 2019: The new reservation system is still under development since POAS wants to make sure shared cars are only available for our tenants. Unfortunately this development is taking longer than expected. We will inform immediately when reservation system is launched.
