Widespread adoption of mobile apps enables users to access and book car-pool services quickly and easily. Such apps provide real-time information on vehicle availability, pricing, and location, making it easier for users to plan their trips and navigate cities. Electric vehicles also benefit from advancements in battery technology which have increased their range and made them more practical for car-pool services. Electric and hybrid cars are increasingly used in shared mobility services as they offer more sustainable and environmentally friendly transportation options.

Electric vehicles have zero emissions and can be charged from renewable energy sources, making them a key solution in transitioning to a low-carbon economy. Hybrid vehicles combine an electric motor with a gasoline engine reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency. Companies like Uber and Lyft are increasingly offering electric and hybrid vehicles as a part of their fleets providing riders with a more sustainable option.

Car-sharing companies like Zipcar and Car2Go also introduced electric and hybrid vehicles to their fleet, giving users access to better short-term rental options. Use of electric and hybrid vehicles in the market is expected to grow in upcoming years as cities and governments increasingly prioritize sustainable transportation solutions to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality.

Consumer preferences are rapidly changing, driven by various factors such as need for convenience, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness. The younger generation is showing less interest in owning a car due to the shift from car ownership towards shared mobility services. In addition to a preference for carpooling, consumers increasingly prioritize sustainability in their transportation choices. This has led to a rise in the use of electric and hybrid vehicles in the market and the growth of bike-sharing and scooter-sharing services. Consumers also demand more convenience and flexibility in the services, which has led to the development of new business models and services. For example, Uber and Lyft have introduced ride-hailing services that offer on-demand transportation. In contrast, car-sharing services like Zipcar and Car2Go provide flexible pick-up and drop-off options for hourly rentals.

Bike-sharing programs typically involve a fleet of bicycles stationed at various locations throughout a city. Users can rent a bike for a short period, typically by scanning a QR code with their smartphone or swiping a membership card, and then return it to another station when finished. Bike sharing is often used for shirt trips such as community to work or running errands. Scooter-sharing programs operate similarly, with users renting electric scooters instead of bicycles. These scooters are often equipped with GPS trackers, allowing users to locate them through a mobile app and unlock them with a code. Like bike sharing, scooter sharing is often used for short trips, although it is generally considered faster than biking.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence are already being used to improve efficiency, safety, and user experience. AI can be used to analyze data from vehicle and predict when maintenance will be needed. This can help companies to schedule maintenance more efficiently, reduce downtime, and extend lifespan of their vehicles. Machine learning algorithms can analyze data on past usage patterns and weather conditions to forecast demand for the service in future. This can help companies allocate resources more effectively and avoid a supply shortage.

Market Dynamics


Urbanization is a phenomenon based on the economic, demographic, technological, psychological, and socio-cultural conditions. The main trigger of urbanization is the prospect of more jobs in cities. Such cities function as the center for business activities with many employment options in different sectors. However, as more people are concentrated in small areas, there is a higher need for efficient transport services. Sustainable mobility can be facilitated in congested urban areas using shared mobility systems that are affordable, convenient and time saving. In addition, there is a greater awareness of environmental concerns than before due to increased population concentration in urban centers. Electric shared mobility service has become a better alternative to the traditional vehicles that cause carbon emission which pollute the atmosphere and the air that we breathe, as well as contribute to traffic jams within a given city or area.

Traffic congestion is becoming an increasingly severe problem in most of the largest cities around the globe. The problem impacts economic costs and lowers quality of life in cities. However, the emergence of shared mobility has made it easier to solve this problem and optimize the transport resources utilization.


According to American Automobile Association (AAA), in August 2023, the average annual cost in the first five years of new-car ownership rose to $12,182 this year, from $10,728 last year, reflecting increased purchase prices, maintenance costs and finance charges. That’s 16 percent of the median household income before taxes. The shared mobility market is experiencing a surge in popularity worldwide, driven in part by the rising cost of vehicle ownership. In many countries, owning a car has become increasingly expensive due to factors such as fuel costs, insurance premiums, and maintenance expenses. As a result, more and more people are turning to shared mobility solutions as a cost-effective alternative. Shared mobility encompasses a range of transportation options, including car-sharing services, ride-hailing apps, bike-sharing programs, and more. These services allow users to access vehicles on an as-needed basis, without the high upfront costs and ongoing expenses associated with owning a car.
