This is the result of a regular survey carried out Car2go, Daimler and Europcar among its customers.

The proportion of respondents, using car sharing offers several times a day, rose by 60 percent. While he is with 1.6 percent even in very low, but continued to grow.

At the same time more and more Car2go customers of CarSharing see not as a substitute, but as a supplement: decreased the percentage of respondents who use car-sharing only in exceptional cases, within the year 2016 by 24 percent to 18.9 percent.
