"The Zoe is the best car for this type of mobility service today - easy to park, spacious, environmentally friendly, and the best range in its category", says Koicihi Harayama, Managing Director of aimo.
aimo cars will be available to pick up within a clearly designated 'Homezone' area from both on street and aimo reserved parking spots located across Stockholm. In the Homezone, aimo users can park a car on the street as well as at several parking spots for sole use of aimo cars.
The Zoe will be marked with the aimo logo, design and colors, with each car being able to connect directly to the aimo app via the users’ smart phone. The app will have full service functionality for the entire ride including locating, reserving, and starting the car and much more.
