At Karshare, it is our purpose to create a world where we never have more cars than we need.
Through community car sharing, we want to power the move to net zero by making it easy to use a car without owning one. That way, we can 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.
Karshare is part of the sharing economy, which thrives on one core principle: to do more with less. We take advantage of what already exists – the 38 million cars currently parked on our roads and driveways in the UK that sit idle a whopping 96% of the time. Car sharing can unlock this fleet of unused vehicles without adding more to our streets. In fact, for every 1 car shared, we can take 14 off the road.
We know that car ownership can be 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.
