The number of vehicles people registered for carsharing services in Germany increased to 2.46 million users in 2018, DW reports.
Data from Germany's carsharing lobby, Bundesverband, also shows that the number of vehicles used for carsharing purposes increased 12% to 20,200.
Free-floating carsharing programs saw a usage increase of 14.9%; station-based programs experienced an even larger bump with a 21.5% usage increase.
Despite over 20,000 vehicles being shared among Germans, the number of vehicles available through carsharing companies 0.04% of the total number of passenger vehicles in the country. Ferdinand Dudenhöffer, an automotive industry expert at the University of Duisburg-Essen, told DW that this low number means carsharing is having a limited environmental impact.
