In our last article, we wrote about the European sharing market in general. This time, we will focus on moped rentals, including electric vehicles.
Advantages of the sphere
If we look at moped rental through the eyes of the customer, we can highlight the following advantages:
- convenient parking — it is easier to find a parking space than for cars;
- it is possible to use a moped with any open category of driver’s license;
- flexibility — suitable for riding in the city and outside it, you can also go shopping, because there is a cargo compartment;
- traffic jams are not an obstacle to moving — the moped is small and can pass even through a narrow place.
Note that moped rental is suitable for both B2C and B2B markets, which means your chances of making money are much higher!
The chart shows quarterly changes in moped rentals. Focus on Paris, Berlin, and Hamburg. These three cities show good quarterly growth and each has all the attributes of an “ideal city” for sharing: rich history, good infrastructure, and a population of 250,000 or more.
To understand the growth of moped sharing relative to the entire rental industry, take a look at the chart below.
In our opinion, this year’s growth in mopeds should be 15% higher relative to the entire industry.
