Lyon is the third major metropolis where Zity by Mobilize is offering its 100% electric free-floating carsharing service, following Madrid and Paris.

This launch aligns with the approach taken by the city of Lyon, which records close to 240,000 cars entering the local urban area every day1, to develop mobility solutions that are accessible to all, respectful of the environment and favourable to economic dynamism.

Zity by Mobilize has obtained the “Autopartage - Métropole de Lyon” label, which confirms its compliance with a set of criteria, such as the use of an environmentally friendly fleet of vehicles.

In addition, Zity by Mobilize is investing in the local economy by creating around 20 jobs in Lyon, either directly or through its partners.

A total of 125 Dacia Spring electric vehicles are now available for car-sharing in Lyon and Villeurbanne. Zity by Mobilize will adapt the operating area and fleet as user demand grows.

A 100% digital service and a 100% electric fleet, available 24/7

The Zity by Mobilize service is available 24/7. Using the smartphone application, users can locate and unlock a vehicle parked on the road near their position – Free of charge registration and no subscription needed.

A fleet of 125 Dacia Springs has been deployed in the Lyon metropolitan area. 100% electric, compact (3.73m) and robust, Dacia Spring is perfectly suited to car-sharing in urban and suburban areas with its four seats, 290-litre boot and range of 230 km WLTP2 (305 km WLTP city).

The price per minute (at an introductory offer of €0.28) includes rental, parking (within the service area), insurance, recharging and car maintenance. In addition, flat rates are applied automatically, and always benefit the user, while a stand-by mode (at an introductory offer of €0.15/minute) enables users to take a break during their journey before returning to their vehicle.

What’s more, as part of its efforts to provide a shared mobility service that is accessible to all, Zity by Mobilize offers reduced “solidarity” rates to low-income users.
