Eni Sustainable Mobility’s car sharing service Enjoy has expanded its car sharing fleet in Rome, Italy with 100 new zero-emission electric vehicles (EVs).

The new EVs will add to Enjoy’s existing fleet in Rome, which consists of about 800 vehicles between cars and cargo. This will be further expanded by 200 EVs over the coming few months, said Italian energy company Eni.

Enjoy offers ‘free floating’ car sharing by enabling rentals to start and end anywhere within the service region, with no predefined pick-up or drop-off points.

The new EVs are available with a battery charge that is no less than 30% to allow clients to go around freely, while the car sharing service will look after the recharging.

Enjoy commenced operations in Rome in 2014 and is said to have rented out over nine million vehicles locally.

By adding the new vehicles in Rome, the car sharing service is completing the EV deployment across its fleet across all cities where the service is available.

Eni Sustainable Mobility CEO Stefano Ballista said: “Enjoy’s car sharing service has been available in Rome for nine years. During this time, it has become an established service that is complementary to local public transport, facilitating mobility for citizens and contributing to making urban mobility more sustainable.

“Eni Sustainable Mobility is contributing to the Net Zero by 2050 target set by Eni. Car sharing, now also electric, is part of the many solutions that are already available to contribute to the decarbonization of transport, such as the development of HVO biofuels, biomethane, e-mobility and hydrogen.”

XEV YOYOs are the fully electric city cars that have joined Enjoy’s fleet in Rome. The cars can clock a maximum speed of 80km/h and come with a range of up to 150km.

Eni launched Eni Sustainable Mobility in January 2023 as a new mobility transition company dedicated to provide sustainable mobility.
