Carsharing, focus on electric cars Aiming to achieve fully green fleets by 2030

The future of car sharing must be characterised by an increase in supply and demand, more services and cars serving larger areas, and greater penetration of electric vehicles, with a target of tripling car sharing and a 100% electric fleet by 2030. These are just some of the strategic objectives to reduce the number of cars in circulation and urban pollution that emerged during the webinar called "More sharing, more electric, less cars".
On this occasion, the Report "The development of car sharing services with electric vehicles - Solutions and proposals", prepared by the National Observatory on Sharing Mobility and Motus E, was presented.
The report is the final step in a series of discussions between local authorities, carsharing operators and representatives of the automotive sector. In addition to taking stock of how to promote the development of carsharing in Italy, the report makes a series of proposals and recommendations at local and national level. At the heart of the debate was the spread of e-sharing and electric mobility and the general issue of the scarcity and uneven spread of recharging infrastructures. There are currently 9,709 electric "distributors" with a total of 19,324 recharging points, 56% of which are located in northern regions, 23% in central regions and only 21% in southern regions and islands. During the meeting, the importance of providing local administrations with more economic and regulatory tools to support car sharing services with electric cars was reiterated. These are considered strategic for achieving sustainable mobility objectives, especially in large cities such as Rome, Milan, Turin and Bologna.
