Steer EV adds 1,000 electric cars in North America
Steer EV, an electric car subscription service from Canada, has announced that it will lease more than 1,000 electric cars worth between 80 and 150 million US dollars through a cooperation with Enterprise Fleet Management. The new vehicles should enable Steer EV to drive its expansion in the USA.
According to the company’s website, Steer EV is active in Canada in Toronto and in the USA in the Washington D.C. area. The expansion in the USA includes Texas and Florida, and British Columbia is to be added as a new province in Canada. In addition, new vehicles are to supplement the fleets at existing locations – i.e. in Toronto and Washington.
Steer EV currently offers all four Tesla models and Jaguar I-Pace on a subscription basis but also the Jeep Wrangler 4xe as the only PHEV model. The company is not yet disclosing which models will be among the more than 1,000 new electric cars. Monthly rates for the subscription range from $1,899 for the Model 3 to $2,899 (Model S, Model X, I-Pace).
Suman Pushparajah, CEO of Steer, says: “The data we have collected, including from our recent launches in Texas and British Columbia, as well as preparations for the upcoming launch in Florida, has demonstrated a growing demand for a month-to-month all-inclusive subscription service. With the help of this partnership with Enterprise Fleet Management, Steer is on track to fulfil demand and scale its fleet considerably in the months to come.”
