With this Solution, the linear economic cycles currently used by car manufacturers can meet the conversion needs of the 260,000,000 vehicles currently in use in Europe. Using existing used cars as a resource, converting them into electric vehicles, and tripling their life span is an original response capable of actively and innovatively addressing this need. Lormauto is a new type of car manufacturer that produces very long-lived vehicles by industrially re-qualifying existing vehicles and continuously modernizing them. Our vehicles are leased to their customers.

Both parties are currently in the process of defining a joint offer in which Transdev will participate.
