The Dutch should not have anything to do with car sharing: use of shared cars is low and will remain low

From figures from the knowledge platform Crow shows that approximately 971,000 Dutch people are registered with a car-sharing service. But as with gyms, many of those subscriptions are dormant. About 80 percent of ‘car sharers’ never use a shared car. Research by the Knowledge Institute Mobility shows that only 200,000 people have used a shared car at least once in the past three years. That equates to 2 percent of the Dutch with a driving license.

Most shared cars shared between private individuals

There are now 87,825 shared cars, of which about 13 percent are electric. By way of comparison: there are a total of 8.8 million cars driving around in the Netherlands. Most shared cars are shared between private individuals, for example via a platform such as Snappcar

. Shared cars from companies, such as greenwheels or Car2Go, are by far in the minority, with only 18,000 units.

Car-sharing not very popular due to costs

In recent months, used car sales have gone from record to record. More than ever, people are looking for individual transport, especially after the corona crisis. The lack of interest in shared cars is partly explained by the price, it reports AD. At Greenwheels you spend about 100 euros for a day. Although the direct and indirect costs of owning a car are of course also very high.
