Powering the move to net zero
At Karshare, it is our purpose to power the move to net zero by making it easy to use a car without owning one, through community car sharing.
We want to halve the number of vehicles on the road by enabling privately owned vehicles to become shared vehicles and achieve a fundamental change in the way we think about transport.
We know that the most environmentally friendly way of getting around is walking, riding a bike, catching the bus or taking a train – but sometimes there are journeys where a car is simply necessary.
Through car sharing, we hope to give people the ability to make a positive difference even while using a car.
Car sharing is part of the sharing economy, which thrives on one core principle: to do more with less. Our service doesn’t require new or valuable resources to function or new assets to be created – instead, it takes advantage of what already exists.
In the UK right now, there are 38 million cars parked on our roads and driveways – and they sit idle a whopping 96% of the time. Car sharing can unlock this fleet of unused vehicles without adding more cars to our streets. In fact, for every 1 car shared, we can take 14 off the road.
With alternative transport options increasingly available, car ownership is becoming a choice, not a necessity.
When car sharing becomes a part of the local fabric, we can achieve a world where vehicles are shared in the same way we share our parks and playgrounds.
We see ourselves as an enabler, empowering communities to choose sustainable mobility whenever possible – including electric vehicles.
Lease and Share is a scheme designed to give people the experience of driving electric with the opportunity to earn money back.
This industry-first leasing agreement allows people to rent out their leased electric and hybrid vehicles – making them that more sustainable.
