Mevo

Mevo is a Wellington-based electric vehicle hire company. It provides a sustainable alternative to private car ownership for urban New Zealand residents and businesses.

Mevo members can access a modern electric vehicle whenever needed by using a mobile app to locate, book, and drive the car. Mevo’s fleet carbon emissions are offset 120%, so every kilometre driven by a Mevo member is helping the climate. Mevo sources its carbon credits from the Rarakau Rainforest Conservation Project in western Southland, which combines climate protection with biodiversity conservation and community development on Maori Land.

Mevo is on target to grow its fleet to 50 electric vehicles in Wellington within the first year of operations. It aims to scale to five cities within five years, deploying over 2000 vehicles.

Mevo is a finalist in the Smarter Transport category of the 2017 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards.
