Born at the end of 2017 in Madrid, Zity by Mobilize is now spreading to 4 major European cities.
The Spanish capital is the birthplace of Zity, which was born out of a partnership between Renault Group, a pioneer in electric vehicles in Europe, and Ferrovial, the Spanish operator recognised as one of the world’s leading players in infrastructure and urban service providers. Zity is present in Madrid with 500 and then over 700 Renault ZOEs.
The self-service car-sharing service is set to roll out in Paris in spring 2020 with 500 of these electric city cars. Its take-off has not been slowed down by the Covid crisis, as the cleaning and disinfection protocol has been adapted and customers then preferred car-sharing to public transport. A fleet of 250 Dacia Springs is gradually being added to the Parisian offer in 2021.
A change of name but not a change of function. From mid-2021, it will be called ” Zity by Mobilize “… in line with the official launch of the Mobilize brand, the new Renault Group brand which operates across the entire mobility value chain, beyond the car itself.
Zity by Mobilize is continuing its development in France in Lyon, one year after Paris, with the proposal of 125 Dacia Spring, in March 2022.
Italy, the third country in which Zity by Mobilize’s 100% electric self-service car-sharing service has been deployed, sees the arrival of 450 Dacia Springs in Milan in May 2022.
Improving the city’s air quality and helping residents get around more efficiently in a responsible and sustainable manner: that is the mission that Zity by Mobilize- has set out for itself.
For Javier Mateos, CEO of Zity Madrid, it’s as much about changing how people think by encouraging a transition away from privately owned vehicles and towards carsharing.
With Zity by Mobilize, a simple smartphone as well as a free, dedicated app is all you need to locate, book, unlock, and return a Renault ZOE or a Dacia Spring, as well as pay for the whole operation. Super flexible, this service is available without a subscription, making it very easy to use.
