Carsharing – a clever Idea

A car used to be the ultimate symbol of freedom and independence but increasingly consumers view ownership as an expense and a burden. Carsharing is becoming increasingly popular with its promise of personal convenience and social improvement.

e-go is a successful provider of modern mobile services in rural areas. e-go combines  Carsharing with Electric cars, E-Bikes and public transport networks proving freedom of travel for everyone at city, country, national and international levels. The Stadtwerke Trossingen have adopted the e-go concept to provide Carsharing services with electric cars in Trossingen. e-go Carsharing is also a member of the Carsharing-Network „flinkster“ -owned by the Deutsche Bahn (German Railway). This enables e-go customers to use their Carsharing services everywhere in Germany and Europe.

An ideal solution for…

For people without cars and particularly in rural areas dependant on buses or trains e-go provides an ideal solution to the problem of inexpensive and easy accessible personal mobility. Ideal also for families who would prefer to do without the cost of a second car and very attractive to everyone interested in electric cars.

Families

People nowadays, especially in rural areas, generally need a second car to get to work and at the same time take care of family business. The result is that very often one car spends most of the day wasting money parked in the employer’s parking lot.

Students

A great many students would like to own and drive an electric car if it were not so expensive to actually buy one. E-go is the ideal solution. Renting instead of owning eliminates the problem of finding the up-front payment for the car.

Public transport

For those who don’t want to rely completely on public transport (in Germany ÖPNV) e-go provides offers quick and easy Carsharing to bridge the gap, the so called „last mile“ between home and the bus or train station.
