Renault ZOE Car Sharing in Padua

During my recent trip to the Veneto region of Italy (Venice/Padua/Verona) I stayed in a hotel near Venice, in Mestre on the mainland. Most of Venice, of course, has no cars – just a lot of polluting boats.

The mainland, however, is packed with cars like any European region. It was very disappointing, therefore, not to see a single electric car in the time we were there.

There was a single bright spot, during a day trip to Padua (Padova). I have previously reported on the Car Sharing Padova organisation there and its use of Renault ZOE electric cars.

I’m pleased to say that it’s still up and running. I saw an encouraging poster in Padua for Car Sharing Padova at an upcoming trade fair.

It did seem, however, like a small oasis in an electric car desert.
