Renault has partnered with global infrastructure operator Ferrovial Services to create a car-sharing service in Madrid, called Zity. The new company will initially offer a fleet of 500 ZOE EVs located within the capital’s M-30 beltway, and in some adjoining areas.

Ferrovial operates toll roads, airports and other municipal services in more than 20 countries.

Renault’s ZOE, one of the most popular EVs in the European market, offers a real-world range of approximately 186 miles.

Several other car-share services, including Bluemove and Respiro, already operate in the Spanish capital. Madrid also boasts a fleet of 110 LEAF taxis, and several Model S operated by Uber.

Zity will begin operations in October.
