Rethinking mobility: What MOIA does.
Currently MOIA offers a fully electric ridepooling system in Hamburg and Hanover, which helps to make the life of people in urban areas more liveable, cleaner and safer. With the ridepooling by MOIA people share a vehicle, whose start and destination are in a similar direction. Via app the customer sends a ride request. A dynamic pooling algorithm assigns it in fractions of a second to an already existing ride. Customers are picked up and transported together with others on a completely dynamic route. Ridepooling helps to reduce individual traffic, use the road structure in cities more efficiently and avoid emissions.
MOIA: the young brand for the turnaround in transportation.
"MOIA" is a slightly modified word from Hindu-Sanskrit and means something like "magic". But the reference to Volkswagen is not missing either: turned upside down, the upside-down capital letters result in "VW", which is combined with IO. In IT, the abbreviation i/o stands for input/output. This underlines the DNA of MOIA as a technology company.
The brand strategy and visual identity aim to make the holistic MOIA experience tangible for users and to ensure the same user experience at all times - whether digitally when booking or while on the move. The special moments for MOIA's customers should not only start at the destination, but already on the way. "Arriving begins here" is therefore the new brand promise.
The cornerstone of the new visual identity is the vehicle MOIA +6, whose colour and shape was transferred into the digital product design by MOIA's own brand design team in order to create a connection between the digital and real environment and thus a holistic visual identity.
The team from MOIA: Keep up and co-create.
Digital thinking needs new minds - and a creative working environment. MOIA's management team deliberately focuses on small core teams. As an independent company within the Volkswagen Group, MOIA is agile enough to keep pace with the latest technological developments and to operate successfully in the dynamic market of new mobility.
For good reason MOIA is therefore also located in Berlin and Hamburg. Here are exactly those creative heads of the European digital startup scene, which are needed for this new thinking.
