EV Mobility has deployed two Model 3 Teslas at Hotel 1000 Seattle. Lighthouse Investments and ESI Ventures with equity financing from a private equity fund advised by Kildare Partners, acquired the Hotel in June 2021, and the property is currently managed by Evolution Hospitality.
LOS ANGELES, Nov. 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — EV Mobility, LLC., the leading all-electric vehicle car-sharing platform and Hotel 1000 Seattle, announced today that they have signed an agreement to deploy electric vehicles (EVs) for hotel guests.
Hotel 1000 is a gateway to an immersive Seattle experience and is ideally located next to major downtown attractions, including the iconic Pike Place Market, Space Needle, and the newly enhanced waterfront. Smart, modern design in the 120 large guest rooms and suites are enhanced with luxury amenities, which will now include two Model 3 Teslas on-demand at the property.
“Having electric vehicles as a hotel amenity, through EV Mobility, adds value to our guest experience by providing an exhilarating method to explore Seattle in style during your stay, while embracing our commitment to operate more sustainably,” said Michael Walzl, General Manager at Hotel 1000 Seattle. “We look forward to our relationship with EV Mobility.”
Ramy El-Batrawi, CEO of EV Mobility added: “We are excited to partner with Hotel 1000 Seattle. This is the first step in expanding throughout Evolution Managed hotels nationally, making EVs a luxe amenity being offered to guests.”
Nicholas Colonna, President of Kildare US, added, “EV charging and vehicles provide both environmental and economic benefits. In terms of environmental benefits, by reducing the need for hotel guests to drive to the hotel with rental or other vehicles, guests can now have on demand use of an EV and reduce greenhouse gases and carbon footprint. This is an example of how Kildare integrates ESG criteria within its business and helps create sustainable performance on behalf of Kildare’s investors.”
