Electric Car Share Comes to Valencia
In a firm commitment to achieving carbon-neutral tourism by 2025, Valencia now has almost 50 shared electric vehicles on its streets giving visitors a sustainable option for moving around the city.
The Valencian firm, CarGreen, will expand its fleet of Mercedes Smart Fortwo vehicles to 100 in the coming weeks. The long-term plan is to reach 300 electric vehicles available throughout the Comunitat Valenciana (Region of Valencia).
Booking an electric vehicle is easily done on the CarGreen app, available for iPhone and Android users. Tourists will need to register on the app and the geolocation tool will show available vehicles in the area along with their current battery level. Vehicle hire is priced at 33 cents per minute, and there is a one-off registration fee of €19. The CarGreen app can be downloaded here for iOS users and here for Android users.
