Renault MOBILITY and IKEA France have signed a partnership to offer consumers an innovative car rental solution 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Renault MOBILITY self-service car rental service, which is being premiered at the IKEA Paris-Villiers store, will gradually be rolled out to all IKEA stores in France by September 2018.
In total, nearly 300 private and commercial vehicles (Trafic, Kangoo, Kangoo Z.E., ZOE) will be made available to the general public at the stores. Initially, the vehicles for hire will be thermal and electric depending on the charging infrastructure available on-site, to make way for an all-electric fleet by 2020.
Renault MOBILITY is already present throughout France with 180 self-service vehicle rental fleets available 24/7 both within the Renault network and at other locations in city centers, public parking lots and other sites. With the use of Renault MOBILITY mobile application, customers can benefit from an easy and fast rental service. The immediate availability of the vehicles and the choice of pickup location – from the parking lot of an IKEA store or Renault MOBILITY fleet – will offer customers great service flexibility.
