There is now a way to enjoy the freedom of zero-emission driving without owning an electric vehicle. You can begin and end your journey anywhere in town – and you don't even have to pay for parking.
All this is possible thanks to Twizy Way by Renault, an innovative car-sharing scheme recently inaugurated in the French agglomeration of Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines. The model is proving so successful that there are already plans to extend it to other areas.
Users can sign up for the scheme online or at a new boutique in the Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines train station. Via the internet or a mobile web app, they can then locate and reserve one of the service's 50 Twizy vehicles. Throughout their reservation, parking is free in town, and to return the vehicle, they simply leave it anywhere in the agglomeration, ready for the next user.
