What is the technology test for companies?

With this initiative, MOVÉS Project provides companies with the opportunity to test electric vehicles for urban freight transport and last mile logistics during their normal operations, to verify their benefits.

The following vehicles are available: urban freight electric vans, electric tricycles, and pedal-assist electric cargo bicycles.

Thanks to the current incentive schemes operating in the country, incorporating electric vehicles is profitable for many types of companies and operations, compared to operating conventional combustion vehicles. This initiative contributes to a reduction in other entry barriers beyond costs, by allowing the vehicle to be tested without having to purchase it, thus reducing uncertainty and providing knowledge about the operation of electric units.

Interested companies can access a trial month free of rental cost of electric freight vehicles, electric tricycles and assisted pedaling bikes for delivery.

How is it implemented?

This initiative is possible through agreements with vehicle rental companies, which acquired electric units with an incentive provided by MOVÉS, and with companies that supply pedal-assist electric bicycles and electric tricycles.
These companies make the vehicles available for a month to organizations whose operation involves urban transport or logistics. MOVÉS subsidizes the vehicles’ rental costs, and the rental companies are only able to charge companies administration and charger installation costs, which cannot exceed one hundred dollars.

It is important to clarify that, in order to be eligible, beneficiary organizations must have their own space where it may be feasible to install the vehicle charger. The car rental companies are responsible for the installation of the charger on site.
To access this benefit, interested companies can complete the form below: the contact information will be made available to the rental companies and suppliers, who will contact the organizations to coordinate the technological test.
