The mobility solutions rental company and the mobility brand affiliated with Stellantis have entered into a strategic partnership providing easy access to vehicle data, with a view to optimizing fleet management as well as the customer experience.

Among these data, the analysis of which will improve the inventory of the fleet or its maintenance, we find the geolocation of the vehicle, its fuel level, its mileage as well as alerts on the condition of the car.
