Coup Mobility, a subsidiary of the Bosch Group, is to make 600 electric scooters in Paris by this summer, in a sharing formula similar to the one already operating in Berlin, where the company manages 1,000 electric scooters (pictured).
The scooters, of the Taiwanese brand Gogoro, will be distributed throughout the city, without corresponding charging stations. Continuous service of the scooters will be assured by mobile Coup teams.
Similar to the 1,000 shared scooters already available in Paris from competitor Cityscoot, Coup Mobility's shared scooters can be located and reserved via app, and must be parked in a dedicated intervention zone after use.
The service will charge a flat rate of €4 per trip up to 30 minutes, followed by €1 per 10-minute period thereafter.
