Communauto, a Canadian-based carsharing company, has added approximately 600 vehicles to its carsharing program in several cities, including Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa, and Halifax, according to a report by auto123.com.

Montreal alone will get 275 new Communauto cars — a quarter will be fully electric, according to the report. Quebec City’s fleet will expand from 30 to 55 hybrid vehicles.

“In 2015, nearly one million trips were made with Communauto vehicles,” Benoit Robert, president and CEO of Communauto, told auto123.com. “Carsharing’s growing popularity, partly due to our extremely competitive rates, requires us to drastically increase our fleet in order to effectively meet the demand. The impact of carsharing is becoming more and more noticeable: in Montreal and Quebec City alone, Communauto’s offer will replace, in 2016, more than 15,000 privately-owned cars.”
