After raising $8.3 million in May, French peer-to-peer car-sharing Drivy has expanded its serves to Germany. Drivy will begin operating in Berlin, according to a report by Venture Village.

After launching in Berlin, Drivy plans to expand its peer-to-peer car-sharing platform to more German cities — including Munich, Cologne and Hamburg — in first quarter 2015, says the report.

“We are very happy to kick off our international expansion in Berlin as the first city in Germany,” Paulin Dementhon, CEO of Drivy, told Venture Village. “This city has ideal market conditions as the people of Berlin are very open to sharing concepts and are used to complementary services like inner city car sharing.”

Founded in 2010 by Dementhon, Drivy has 350,000 registered users and 20,000 cars in France, according to the report.
