Renault & Ferrovial To Launch Carsharing Service With Fleet Of 500 ZOEs In Madrid

Renault and the firm Ferrovial Services will be launching a carsharing service that has been dubbed “Zity” in Madrid, Spain, according to a recent press release.

This carsharing service fleet will initially be composed of 500 all-electric Renault Zoe cars; most of which will be stationed within Madrid’s M-30 beltway, though some will also be stationed in other, nearby areas.

As a refresher here: the current model year of the all-electric Renault Zoe features an NEDC range rating of 400 kilometers per charge (~249 miles). As NEDC range ratings are no way accurate, I’ll go ahead and give an estimate of real-world range here: 300 kilometers (~186 miles). That is probably more than enough to meet most carshare users’ needs, I would think.

Green Car Congress provides more information: “Ferrovial is a leading global infrastructure operator and municipal services company, with 97,000 employees in more than 20 countries. Its main business areas are: Toll Roads, Services, Construction and Airports.”

Beyond that, not much else has been revealed, as all that has happened so far is the signing of an agreement. We’ll keep you posted as more is revealed.

Madrid itself has been a cleantech leader in other ways, though. “Madrid is seeing some inspired clean air choices. CleanTechnica earlier reported that Irizar was awarded a contract for Madrid’s first 15 twelve-meter electric buses + Barcelona’s first 4 eighteen-meter articulated buses. Another first found Uber launching UberOne luxury service in Madrid using Tesla Model S sedans. Keep the planet moving forward, Madrid!”
