“The idea is that when you want a car, you just take it, and when you’ve finished with the car, you just leave it.”
Most of the time, our cars sit waiting for us to use them, but what if you only paid for a car when you needed it?
What if you could have access to a car without any of the worries—fuel charges, maintenance, insurance, parking costs, washing and cleaning?
Daimler’s car2go includes all of the above in a pay-as-you-go city-transport concept currently available in Ulm, Germany and Austin, Texas.
Daimler eventually hopes to have cars within a three-minute walk of every city driver, with a fleet of cleaners keeping them pristine around city streets and the system may upgrade to fully electric Smarts.
