Eni’s car sharing service, launch fleet of electric 100 XEV YOYO city cars in Turin
Enjoy, Eni’s car sharing service, is going electric, with the introduction of XEV YOYO city cars among its fleet. Enjoy’s shared mobility revolution has begun in the City of Turin, where the new car sharing service was presented today at the City Hall in Piazza Palazzo di Città, in the presence of Chiara Foglietta, Councillor for Mobility and Transport of the City of Turin, and Fabrizio Ricca, Councillor for Youth Policies, Sport and Internationalisation of the Regional Government of Piedmont, who spoke alongside Giuseppe Ricci, Eni Energy Evolution Chief Operating Officer, and Lou Tik, Founder and CEO of XEV.
As of today, Enjoy clients in Turin can rent one of the 100 brand new XEV YOYOs via the app. The cars are immediately recognisable thanks to their unmistakable lime green colour. The new cars join the existing fleet of 300 cars and cargo vehicles already available in the city. Thanks to the agreement between Eni and XEV, a car company founded in Turin in 2018, the advantages of urban electric mobility are combined with the convenience of ‘free floating’ car sharing, which allows rentals to begin and end anywhere within Enjoy’s coverage area, without a predefined pick-up or drop-off point. Morover, Enjoy takes care of recharging: XEV YOYO city cars allow customers to move around freely as they always come with a battery charge of more than 30%.
“Reducing polluting emissions, decreasing the use of private vehicles by favouring public transport and the use of shared vehicles are goals that we pursue to achieve our vision for an intelligent, responsible and interconnected model of mobility” said Chiara Foglietta, Councillor for Mobility and Transport of the City of Turin. “The expansion of Enjoy’s fleet with the introduction of 100 new electric cars is a step in this direction. It increases and improves the offer of alternatives to private cars available to citizens and promotes the intermodality of public transport.”
“In this region that is ready and primed for innovation, Enjoy has chosen Turin as the first city in Italy to expand its car fleet, enriching it with electric-powered vehicles and contributing to actions that can improve air quality” emphasised Fabrizio Ricca, Councillor for Youth Policies, Sport and Internationalisation of the Regional Government of Piedmont. “The Piedmont Region is working hard on sustainable mobility. For example, we have invested nearly 200 million euros to renew the fleet of local public transport, by converting buses from diesel to electric for instance, to incentivize the purchase of subscriptions and to improve both corporate fleets and private vehicles. We are also looking directly at training ‘mobility managers,’ both in the civil service and in the business world. We thank Eni for this opportunity that will serve the people of Turin as well as the many tourists who visit our city.”
