Less than 2 months in, car2go has more than 78K customers in Chongqing

In less than two months, more than 78,000 customers have registered with car2go in Chongqing, China. For comparison, after between four to five years, the biggest car2go locations in Europe and North America have approximately 100,000 to 130,000 registered customers per city.

One of the 400 car2go vehicles in Chongqing is rented every 1.7 minutes. With this start, car2go has created an important alternative to owning one’s own car and thus a valuable addition to the local public transport system in Chongqing with its 30 million inhabitants.

The start in Chongqing far exceeds our expectations. The Chinese customers are really enthusiastic about the service and make intensive use of the vehicles.

—Roland Keppler, CEO of car2go

Chongqing is the first car2go location in Asia. There are currently 400 smart fortwo vehicles spread over approximately 60 square kilometers of the central city areas of Chongqing including Yubei, Jiangbei and Yuzhong. The car2go vehicles save on parking spaces, reduce air pollution and improve the traffic situation in the city.
