Car2go and Car2Share merge to car2go China
Daimler is to merge its car2go car sharing subsidiary with its Car2Share station-based car sharing programme in China.
The announcement comes nearly a year after car2go opened its first Asian location in Chongqing in south western China and will see the two subsidiaries merge under the roof of Mercedes-Benz Auto Finance Ltd to form the consolidated car2go China Co Ltd.
The consolidated business covers a total of seven Chinese locations, with Car2Share currently operating about 70 fixed rental stations in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Hangzhou and Guangzhou alongside car2go’s free-floating concept in Chongqing.n
Chen Bing, CEO of car2go China, said: “With the concentrated power and the comprehensive know-how of the car2go and Car2Share brands, we will offer our car2go China customers tailor-made mobility solutions in the future.”
