A more sustainable way to have a car
Fewer cars on the streets. Fewer cars parked in the cities. Fewer exhaust fumes in the air and more urban space for playgrounds instead of parking lots. This is what you contribute towards by joining M.
Our clever algorithms help you find the car you need, where you need it, and when you need it. That’s why one single car from M replaces 8 privately owned cars.
Every car from M removes 8 privately owned cars from our cities' streets™
Our cities are designed around cars, yet they sit idle for 95% of their lives––costing us unnecessary time, money and space. M is changing this. Here's how.
Of M customers:
68% who had access to a car before M reduced their driving by 43%
51% canceled a future car purchase
33% continued to use public transport as normal
30% drive less after signing up to M
25% said that they walk or cycle more
25% sold their car as a direct result of joining M
If it weren’t for M, there would be 4,515 more cars in the Swedish capital today. So, what does all this mean from an environmental perspective?
The actual effect
When people use M instead of owning their own cars, we see concrete, positive effects for the environment.
of CO2 tailpipe emissions saved.
of CO2 saved thanks to the reduced consumption of cars.
of fuel saved from reduced driving.
of water saved due to more efficient cleaning routines.
Our cars are not fully electric yet. That's why we carbon compensate all car emissions by 110%.
A sustainable future
Creating smarter, healthier, and more sustainable cities is one of our core driving forces. By working together with cites, politicians, urban planners, and contractors, M can contribute towards several of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Good health and well-being
M contributes to better public health through fewer and safer cars in traffic.
Decent work and economic growth
M makes cities more time-efficient and with less traffic congestion.
Sustainable cities and communities
M enables better utilization of the city area with greener infrastructure and more housing.
Responsible consumption and production
M facilitates more efficient use
M reduces CO2 emissions through reduced car usage and consumption.
From parking to parklife
The fewer cars on our streets, the more opportunity we have to drive our cities forward. So far, M has removed 4,515 cars from the streets of Stockholm. That amounts to 56,440 m2 of parking space––an area as large as Kungsträdgården.
Today in Sweden we have 50 m2 of parking space per person but only 42 m2 of living space.
Imagine if we could replace our cities’ parking spaces with:
A small forest
The space to plant 1,000 new trees would extract 1,350 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year.
Housing 10,300 people could contribute 4.2 billion SEK a year to the Stockholm metropolitan area.
