car2go and emov already have more competition: Zity, Renault and Ferrovial will arrive in Madrid in December
500 electric vehicles more, for shared cars, populate the streets of Madrid from December. Renault and Ferrovial just presented Zity, your new car sharing service, Y the most direct competition from car2go and emov, Daimler (smart) and PSA (Citroen), respectively. Now, there will be room for all of them?
Renault thinks so. Hence they are already preparing a fleet of vehicles 500, all Renault Zoe, to be located within the perimeter of the M-30 and some additional areas outside of this ring, which are still being determined. And just yesterday we told you the reason why Renault boasted that one of every three electric enrolled in 2017 in Spain are your brand, it was none other than the preparation of this fleet of shared cars.
The first phase will begin in November Zity, the trial period of several vehicles. To begin at full capacity in December.
The model used is the latest version of its electric utility five-seater, the Renault Zoe 40. A vehicle according approval, can travel up to 400 kilometers. That said, the service Zity Renault highlight precisely because the only one that offered a true five-seater and vehicles have greater autonomy.
In any case it is worth wondering if indeed this is the solution to respond to the challenges of mobility and pollution posed by the future in big cities or, on the contrary, we headed to an urban landscape where car sharing deal the few public parking spaces remaining, and will be the alternative of other public and sustainable transport, such as Metro.
With the arrival of Zity, and the expansion of car2go fleets and emov, only these three companies will add more than 1,500 cars in service in the capital. Now we just wait for the next steps in Spain shared, they should be expanding to other cities and increased performance range fleets already in Madrid, at important locations such as airport car.
