Car Sharing in Figures: Statistics by McKinsey and Deloitte

Car sharing is steadily driving out the long-term car rental. One of the reasons is the fact that this type of car leasing allows exchange system participants to save up to 70% of the aggregate transport cost: they pay only for the actual time of vehicle usage, while insurance and gasoline are included in the lease price.

Such a promising niche has sparked the interest of consulting and analytical companies: given below are the most intriguing facts of the per-minute car rental studies by McKinsey and Deloitte conducted in 2018–2019.
