What is YEGO?
YEGO is a motosharing service in the cities of Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia and Zaragoza. It consists in renting electric vehicles per minute, paying only for your drive and having an available urban transport which is easy, fast, comfortable, sustainable and quiet. Ride electric vehicles in your city whenever and wherever you want!
How sustainable is the system really?
To make a comparison, riding a YEGO vehicle uses half the energy of a toaster to take you around the city at 50km/h. Even taking into account the emissions produced in the power plants where the batteries are made, YEGO emits 2% of the emissions of a car driving around the city. Moreover, almost all parts of the vehicle are recyclable, including the battery.
Who is the vehicle manufacturer?
The manufacturing of the vehicles and their individual pieces for reparations is an externalized process from YEGO assigned to the German company Emco.
What do I need to know about riding an electric vehicle?
Electric vehicles are very quiet: pedestrians, animals or other people and vehicles you may find in your way might not hear you passing by, so make sure that they see you and do not hesitate to use the horn to avoid dangerous situations. They are also very reactive to acceleration: specially when they do it from deadlock (0 km/h). During acceleration please be careful not to be surprised by the power and electric traction of the chain.
How many YEGO are currently in the city?
We have been running the company for only two year by now; nevertheless our fleet already amounts to 210 vehicles in Barcelona and we will double the fleet by beginning of summer. Moreover, our YEGO Ranger (if you are looking for job, checkout our career section) team takes care of them being correctly distributed around the city so you can always have a vehicle nearby.
How can I recognize a YEGO vehicle?
If there is something that differentiates a YEGO from other vehicles, it is its characteristic light green colour. Plus they have identification stickers with the brand name and logo. But this is not all, to recognize every vehicle we assigned a personalized name. In this way it is much easier to spot them on the map! The name tag is placed in the inside part of the handlebars. Do you want one of them to be called like you? Only our best users get it!
When will YEGO be available in other cities?
We have been alive for a year now, but apart from settling in Barcelona, we are expanding in Madrid, Valencia, Sevilla and Zaragoza. Little by little, we will be expanding to other spanish cities as well as european one.
