Ohmie GO aims to drive electric adoption

A new car-sharing service for the owners of Melbourne apartments
December 7, 2019

Residents in Melbourne's EQ Tower will be able to borrow a pair of Hyundai Kona Electrics hourly, or for an entire day. Although pricing hasn't been finalised, the starting rate will be $15 per hour, with no extra charge for distance covered.

Existing car-share services tend to cost between $8 and $14 per hour, with a per-kilometre cost between 30 and 40 cents. Insurance, charge and maintenance costs are all included in that fee, although residents are on the hook for tolls.

Having booked the cars through a smartphone app, residents collect, return and charge the cars in the building's underground garage. Ohmie GO plans to have the chargers powered by renewable energy within a month.
