Q-Free is piloting a new system to make cities cleaner: The Geofence project in Norway. The pilot is using Q-Free technology in hybrid vehicles to inform users when they enter or leave a Low Emission Zone. The users can decide from information displayed on an in-vehicle smart phone whether to switch from petrol/diesel to electricity depending on their GPS position.

Results have shown that this information has encouraged hybrid vehicle users to drive on electricity for 93% of the journey, up from 82%. We see a future in which informed users can take more conscious decisions that have a positive impact on air quality in our cities.
