On May 22, 2019, Cogir Real Estate launched CogirAuto, a shared electric automobile service at the disposal of seniors residing in Manoir Manrèse, a Cogir Real Estate retirement home

The launch took place in the presence of Ms. Marie-Christine Miousse, Regional Manager for Cogir Real Estate, Mr. Sophie Tremblay, Senior Regional Manager for Cogir Real Estate, Ms. Julie Marion, Manoir Manrèse general manager and residents of Manoir Manrèse.

 

The electric car, an innovative solution, is offered free of charge to residents

“The residents enjoy an active lifestyle and they like to go out. We are sure that this new car sharing service will further enhance the daily lives of our seniors,” says Ms. Sophie Tremblay, Senior Regional Manager, Cogir Real Estate’s Retirement Homes Division. “Moreover, safety is a prime concern for seniors and their families when they decide to live in a retirement home. We are quite pleased to provide them with this brand-new car sharing service which will allow them to get around safely and independently,” adds Ms. Tremblay.

In addition to the reduced carbon footprint, residents will enjoy riding in an electric car, combining comfort, peace of mind, quiet driving, good road handling and the maintenance cost savings that come from not having to own a personal vehicle.

Manoir Manrèse’s CogirAuto joins a fleet of more than fifteen electric cars already in service in Cogir’s private retirement homes and residential properties.
