  • car2go CEO #olivierreppert: "We're pushing electromobility forward."
  • Carsharing companies such as #car2go are important partners for cities in the promotion of electromobility and enable tens of thousands of test drives every day

Stuttgart – "We are convinced that the future of carsharing is electric", says #olivierreppert, CEO of #car2go. Market leader in the flexible carsharing industry #car2go now has 300,000 customers at three purely electric locations who regularly drive 1,400 electric vehicles. Around 10,000 journeys are made per day. #car2go customers have already driven a total of 57.3 million purely electric kilometers. That is equivalent to 1,429 trips around the earth or as many tons of CO2 that 12.3 million oak trees or 24,000 hectares of spruce forest could absorb in a year.

car2go has been investing in electromobility for six years and has obtained experience and knowledge of setting up and running pure electric fleets. In #stuttgart, #amsterdam and #madrid, the company offers exclusively cars with electric drive, making it the world's largest electric free-floating carsharing service. And #car2go is still powering ahead with electric energy: In Hamburg, #car2go is holding close talks with the city to discuss successively electrifying the carsharing fleet as of next year and replacing the combustion engine in 400 smart vehicles with smart electric drive. In #stuttgart, 50 electric Mercedes-Benz-Classes were recently added to the fleet. The electric vehicles will be equipped with new hardware at all locations – this makes the rental process via smartphone even faster and easier.
