In January 2019, Renault will launch a carsharing service in Amsterdam adding 200 electric city cars in the city’s growing shared mobility pool.

With Renault’s new fleet, the one-way shared cars in Amsterdam will reach 550. By one-way shared cars, we mean that you can pick up and park these cars anywhere within the parking range in the city center — without having to pay parking fees.
