The Hauffgasse pilot scheme has three electric cars that travel between 3,000 and 6,000 kilometres per month. 14 of the 80 registered users help servicing, cleaning and maintaining the cars.
Only 1,532 of the currently over 700,000 private cars in Vienna are EVs. The 2050 goal is to switch all motorized individual traffic within the city limits to new motor technologies.
The City will establish a comprehensive network of E-chargers by 2020. This includes 1,000 charging stations for E-cars.
„The BWSG residential complex in Hauffgasse is one of the locations offering the new E-mobility scheme. The residents have access to one BMW i3, one Renault Zoe as well as a Nissan Evalia for when they have that bit more to transport. Customer card registration is easy and the scheme is in regular use. If you choose to join as an active customer, you pay half price and commit yourself to contributing to the scheme (washing the cars, maintenance, offering advice to interested parties).“ Daniela S.

Smarter Together is a city renewal initiative that is being implemented in three cities (Vienna, Lyon and Munich) with EU funding support. It is their goal to design an innovative, liveable and environmentally friendly future Vienna together with the locals. They focus on refurbishment, energy, mobility and logistics as well as information and communication technology. A number of participation and information schemes are put in place in order to involve the local population in addressing these topics. When residential complexes are renovated, they are equipped with E-mobility concepts: the local availability of integrated EV solutions and sharing schemes (e-bikes, e-cars, e-vans) is ensured by Wiener Linien, the non-profit property developer BWSG and other partners.
