Respiro – SEAT’s carsharing service – is being rolled out in L’Hospitalet de Llobregat (Barcelona) beginning on 14 November. It will be the second city in Spain where it will operate after Madrid, which now has 15,000 users.
The fleet will comprise 16 vehicles running on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).
SEAT Head of Urban Mobility, Lucas Casasnovas, says: “This launch in L’Hospitalet, one of the frontrunner cities on mobility issues, is a further step in our commitment to improving mobility in cities. We want to make ecofriendly solutions available to the public by hours or days, depending on their travel needs both inside and outside the city.”
Núria Marín, L’Hospitalet de Llobregat mayor and President of the Spanish network of Smart Cities, adds: “The implementation of Respiro in L’Hospitalet will enable us to counter the effects of climate change and air pollution, as promoting carsharing is precisely one of the measures included in L’Hospitalet’s sustainable urban mobility plan. We continue to work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the UNO by the target date of 2030.”
Respiro was launched nine years ago. It was acquired by SEAT in 2018.
