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 up to 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

The actual effect

When people use M instead of owning their own cars, we see concrete, positive effects for the environment.

Statistic, 8200 tons

of CO2 tailpipe emissions saved.

Stastitic 41,300 tons

of CO2 saved thanks to the reduced consumption of cars.

Statistic 3,2 million litres

of fuel saved from reduced driving.

Statistic 3,8 milion litres

of water saved due to more efficient cleaning routines.

Not all our cars are electric yet. That’s why we carbon compensate all M trips 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.

From parking to parklife

The fewer cars on our streets, the more opportunity we have to drive our cities forward.
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:

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.
