More than half of the world’s population lives in cities. And those numbers are growing: Urban populations are expected to double from the current 3.5 billion to 6 billion by 2050. With surging numbers of people living in cities, traffic congestion goes up and so does air pollution from which more than 5.5 million people worldwide are dying prematurely every year.
According to ZipCar (the largest car sharing company in the world), one shared vehicle reduces up to 15 private vehicles. The CO2 reductions of a single EkoRent electric vehicle is comparable to 30 private cars each. With 10 EkoRent cars, the CO2 reductions annually would be 14,425 tons. If their electric vehicles sharing system and car rental reaches a 30 percent market share, about 11 million tons of CO2 would be avoided annually.
EkoRent opened a number of centrally located service stations in Finland during 2014. And will continue adding new stations and expanding their fleet in the future.
