The last few years have seen the emergence of a number of innovations in the field of car travel, with the aim of helping to achieve more breathable air for everyone. Hybrid and electric cars significantly reduce CO2 emissions and fine particles in the atmosphere. Another interesting phenomenon is shared cars, which relieve congestion in cities, free up space on the roads and reduce traffic.

These new modes of mobility require a tailored offering. Interparking offers exactly that. To support the transition toward low-polluting vehicles, we are increasing the number of charging terminals for electric and hybrid vehicles in our car parks.

PARKING SPACES FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES

In the Netherlands, for example, drivers of clean vehicles benefit from an advantageous parking rate thanks to a number plate recognition system. In Belgium, we used Big Data technology to identify the areas where demand was highest: we have as a result installed a number of charging terminals in these locations (250 as at December 31, 2019), at reserved and easily recognizable blocks. Drivers can also use their Pcard+ to charge their vehicle’s batteries and take advantage of one of the lowest rates on the market.

In partnership with several major carsharing operators, we also reserve spaces for shared cars in our car parks.

Interparking also advocates the development of multimodality. We connect our car parks to other modes of transport: railway stations, bus or metro stations, as well as bike hire points.
