Spain-based carsharing group emov is set to expand to the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, the company announced. Outside of the city center, the newest launch site will enable users to start and end their journeys in close proximity to airport facilities.

Both residents and tourists will be able to access the service through their smartphones.

Since its launch in Madrid in December 2016, with a fleet of 600 Citroën C-Zero electric vehicles, emov has amassed more than 160,000 customers.

In Madrid, emov will soon deploy its corporate accounts solution, making it possible for many large companies and start-ups to manage employee travel at a significant cost savings of up to 50% compared with conventional car and driver solutions.

Other recent developments include the elimination of the insurance deductible for individuals who choose to use emov. This means that for only 1 euro more per journey, users will not be liable for the 500 euro payment they would normally owe if responsible for damages to the vehicle.
