“In a first stage, this new service will have a fleet of 500 electric cars. We will be starting a test stage in November, with several vehicles in operation.”
ZITY, the new carsharing scheme in MADRID
The service will be provided with the ZOE Z.E. 40 electric car, which has a certified range of 400 kilometres, thus allowing users to extend both journeys and duration of use of the vehicles. Moreover, the cars have a capacity for five passengers and a large boot. These cars have a 5-star ranking from EURO NCAP – the maximum ranking available in terms of safety, as well as a guarantee that all the energy used to recharge the cars comes from 100% renewable resources.
The project combines the capacities of Ferrovial in the provision of urban services and development of environmentally friendly solutions, and the experience of Renault, as the leading seller of electric vehicles in Spain and Europe and a benchmark for sustainable mobility.
