PARIS -- PSA/Peugeot-Citroen SA will offer its Citroen C-Zero EV to business customers through a car-sharing service in France beginning in January.
PSA said it expects fleet customers that require cars for short-distance needs will represent a large part of its EV business in France and in the rest of Europe.
The C-Zero will be offered through a service called Citroen Business Connected, which is based on an alliance between PSA's Citroen Business France division and the French car-sharing operator Carbox.
Business customers will be able to reserve and pickup the C-Zero models at locations around France beginning in January, a PSA spokeswoman said. Citroen Business Connected will offer car maintenance services and will ensure that the cars remain charged.
The car-sharing service will likely be available outside France eventually, but a date has not yet been determined, the spokeswoman added.
The Citroen C-Zero and its sister model, the Peugeot iOn, are based on the Mitsubishi i-MiEV.
