The motorway manager APRR has acquired the historic mobility operator Kiwhi Pass. The access and payment badge recharges more than 56,000 compatible stations.
Large companies are gradually eyeing electric mobility. Beyond its activity as a motorway manager, APRR (Autoroutes Paris-Rhin-Rhône) is now launching as a mobility operator. The company announces that it bought the historic player of the Kiwhi Pass refill on May 13, 2020. Its badge authorizes payment and activation of charges at more than 56,000 terminals in France and Europe. Manufacturers Hyundai, Kia, Mitsubishi, Smart and Volkswagen are offering it to their customers when they buy a new electric car.
With its “Low Carbon Highways” plan launched in 2012, APRR claims a charging point every 50 km between Paris and Lyon. 55 service areas of the APRR and AREA network are equipped, including 22 in high power terminals. While it surprisingly does not offer a preferential toll rate for electric vehicles, the APRR specific “Electronic T-badge” offers the management and commissioning fees.
