Seat's carsharing service is starting in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat in Barcelona beginning 14 November.

Barcelona will be the second city in Spain where Seat's carsharing platform, Respiro operates after Madrid, which now has 15,000 users.

The 16 vehicles in the fleet will run on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

"This launch in L'Hospitalet, one of the front-runner cities on mobility issues, is a further step in our commitment to improving mobility in cities," said Seat head of Urban Mobility, Lucas Casasnovas.

"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."

Seat purchased Respiro and entered the carsharing sector for the first time in 2018. Launched nine years ago, Respiro has 15,000 users in Madrid.

The Spanish automaker also recently announced its move into corporate carsharing to provide cars by the minute, hour and day in the city centre, at the dealership and place of work. 

Respiro vehicle service reserved parking will be street marked according to city bylaws as well as specific informative vertical signing.
