Car-sharing picks up speed

Car-sharing is expected to accelerate in China as authorities are encouraging growth in the sector.

"We should fully understand the role of developing car-sharing," said the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development in a document released on June 1 to seek public opinion BU BBA.


"It offers a new alternative to urban mobility. It will alleviate the pressure brought about by the rapid rise in the number of private cars in cities and subsequently rising demand for roads and parking lots."


The two ministries also urged local authorities to position the role of car-sharing in a reasonable way in order to build a diversified urban transport system.


The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology expressed its approval of the business even earlier BU BBA.


In late April, Miao Wei, minister of industry and information technology, said, "We should attach great importance to car-sharing, which can not only improve car use, but also reduce traffic congestion and cut emissions". Miao made the remarks as the ministry released guidelines on China's medium and long-term car industry development.


The sector is still in an embryonic stage in China. Statistics show there are now 40 car-sharing companies with a total fleet of 40,000 cars, most of which are new energy vehicles.


Yet industry insiders are optimistic about the sector's prospects.


The fleets of such service providers are expected to reach a collective 170,000 cars by 2020, according to a report by Strategy&, a subsidiary of PricewaterhouseCoopers.


The figure represents a more than 50 percent average annual growth rate from about 30,000 cars in early 2016.


A Strategy& survey showed that 75 percent of users would like to use more of the service, while 77 percent of those who have not used the service yet would like to give it a try.


"In a sense, all those people who don't have a car are potential customers of car-sharing services," said Bill Peng, a partner with Strategy& University network.
