LAUNCH OF AN ELECTRIC CAR SERVICE FOR RESIDENTS OF MANOIR OUTREMONT
Brossard, June 13th 2019 - On Tuesday, June 11, 2019, in the presence of the management team of Manoir Outremont, the inauguration of the Cogir Auto was held, an electric vehicle car-sharing service made available to residents.
The electric car, an innovative solution, is offered free of charge to residents
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. Not only is the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt fully electric, but many safety features have been added, including an integrated GPS system which follows and locates the vehicle in all its travels and sends real-time mechanical information to the residence, ensuring that the car will always be safe and in working order. Cogir Auto also features three cameras which provide information as needed.
“Since the implementation of the Cogir auto in the Cogir residences, we have witnessed a real craze. Cogir auto offers residents the opportunity to be autonomous in their travels. In addition, some residents have even volunteered as chauffeurs. Which allows our residents to socialize even more. We are very pleased to be able to offer the residents of Manoir Outremont this beneficial service”, says Richard Perreault, General Manager of Manoir Outremont.
The Manoir Outremont’s Cogir Auto joins a fleet of thirteen cars already in service in Cogir’s private retirement homes.
