Palermo Adds Renault ZOEs To Car Share Program
In early October, the city of Palermo (in cooperation with Amat, Renault and Enel) launched an electric car sharing service with 24 Renault ZOE.
This is the largest project in southern Italy with plug-ins.
ZOEs are available in five of the city’s carparks (three to be added later this year):
- Piazza Massimo
- Piazzale Ungheria
- Via Malta
- Piazza Ignazio Florio
- Viale della Libertà
22 kW 3-phase charging stations can refresh range in about an hour to 80%.
“The Palermo electric car-share service is part of Amat’s Demetra project, which aims to reduce traffic in the city centre by means of an integrated car-sharing platform. Under the partnership, Enel installed sixteen 22 kW charging stations at strategic points throughout the city. The choice of an electric vehicle contributes to preserving the artistic and cultural Arab-Roman heritage of Palermo, listed as a UNESCO world heritage site in July 2015.”
“Electric cars make an excellent choice for car-share services, and Renault ZOE serves in a number of other car-share systems across the planet, including Comos in Malaysia, E-car Club in the UK and LetsGo in Denmark.”
