Coup is to deploy 1,500 electric scooters across Berlin, Paris and Madrid – expanding its overall fleet to 5,000.
The company says the European cities will each receive 500 e-scooters to meet increased demand.
From 1 April, users will have access to a pricing structure in Berlin of €0.21 euros per minute for a minimum rental time of 10 minutes.
Dr. Bernd Schmaul, chief executive officer of Coup, says: “We are taking this step in response to feedback from our users. There is increasing demand for lower prices for short rides.”
On the same day, Coup will reduce the minimum age requirement for riders from 21 to 18 across all three locations.
Coup is also upgrading its app to provide users with help and information on booking.
