Beev has already supported more than 2,000 customers such as Burger King, Cuisinella, Unesco, Veolia, La Croix Rouge as well as municipalities, hospitals and logistics sites, in their choice of electric vehicles and the installation of charging stations.
Solal Botbol, co-founder of Beev, said: “This fundraising will allow us to put more electric vehicles on the road and more charging stations in companies and employees’ homes thanks to our 360° solution. To date , Beev has already saved more than 10,000 tonnes of C02, or 10,000 round trips from Paris to New York by plane.”
