Free2Move Services is now expanding its offering with new solutions dedicated to electrified vehicle charging. Created in September 2016, the Free2Move brand consolidates all of Groupe PSA’s new mobility services with the aim of satisfying the full spectrum of consumers’ transport needs: urban travel app, car sharing, fleet management and multi-brand leasing services.
The Charging Pass allows users to locate and access charging stations compatible with their vehicle. It makes a pre-selection based on distance, as well as the speed and price of the charge. Once the station is selected, the application guides the user to it, displaying the best route directly on the car’s screen or via a smartphone.
With more than 85,000 locations in January 2019, Free2Move Services has the largest network of public charging stations in Europe.
Complementing the Charging Pass, the Trip Planner proposes the best route to drivers based on analysis of the vehicle’s residual autonomy and its use (speed, air conditioning, etc.). Users can prepare their trip, be guided and make sure they stop at charging stations whenever necessary. The Trip Planner offers drivers reassurance, allowing them to choose an optimal route with well-placed charging stations and estimate the length of the drive, including charging time.
The new dedicated services will be available from the launch of Groupe PSA’s new electrified cars in 2019. Free2Move Services relies on a digital platform created together by Groupe PSA and Capgemini, which offers many connected services to manufacturers and drivers.
