How You're Helping Our Planet
Reduce transportation impacts by decreasing local air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. This benefits public health and the environment while reducing traffic congestion and parking demand.
In our current economy, we take materials from the Earth, make products from them, and eventually throw them away as waste – the process is linear. In a circular economy, by contrast, we stop waste being produced in the first place.
Hardware–as–a–Service, which clearly has roots in Software-as–a–Service, is a business model where companies sell packages that include hardware, software, maintenance and, sometimes, installation, for a monthly fee. Under HaaS, customers pay for services, not Things.
A EV is defined as a vehicle that can be powered by an electric motor that draws electricity from a battery and is capable of being charged from an external source. An EV includes both a vehicle that can only be powered by an electric motor that draws electricity from a battery (all-electric vehicle) and a vehicle that can be powered by an electric motor that draws electricity from a battery and by an internal combustion engine (plug-in hybrid electric vehicle).
Short Range Transportation
Transportation over short distances provided by lightweight, usually single-person vehicles (such as bicycles and scooters). The arrival of electric scooters and motor-assisted bicycles, backbones of a transportation mode known asmicromobility, has been welcomed as part of the solution to clogged roadways and unbearable travel delays.
