In the first edition of the Invers Mobility Barometer on “European Car Subscription”, market researchers from Invers took a closer look at the European car subscription market and identified the following trends:

(1) Car subscription adds flexibility to the new mobility space
(2) Car subscription drives digitization within the traditional car trade market
(3) Car subscription accelerates the trend towards EVs
(4) Car subscription providers are increasingly asking for vehicle data
(5) New entrants from other mobility segments into the car subscription space

Siegen, August 30th, 2022 – Invers will present its first edition of the Mobility Barometer on car subscription in a webinar today at 4pm. Around 100,000 to 130,000 car subscription contracts were signed across France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK just in 2020, as estimated by industry experts Berylls in their study “Snapshot of the European Auto Subscription Market”. According to the same report, the CAR Institute predicts that this number will increase between two to four million by 2030. A new market segment with significant growth potential is emerging. In the Mobility Barometer, the Invers sharing technology experts plan to analyze current developments within the mobility industry and have chosen car subscription as the topic of their first edition. “For several months now, we have been working with partners on projects in which we digitize vehicles for subscription offers,” says Bharath Devanathan, CBO at Invers. “The business model is moving the whole market, driving innovative ideas for leveraging vehicle data and bringing different market players and new collaboration concepts to the table.”

In the first part, the Invers Mobility Barometer provides an overview of the current state of the market by curating and summarize existing analyses on the European car subscription market from other relevant studies. These include publications by Deloitte, Faaren and Berylls, among others. In the second part of the Barometer, eight key market players from across Europe have their say: interviewees Max-Josef Meier, CEO of FINN, Konstantin Stenzel, CMO at Faaren, Hans Kristian Aas and Jordan Symonds from imove, Dr Max Kury, CEO at aboDeinauto, Mathias Albert, CEO of ViveLaCar, Antonis Samothrakis, Co-CEO of Instacar and Sandrine Ploog, Head of Operations at Carify share their experiences, insights and forecasts. The concluding report segment ‘data playground’, pointedly compiles facts and figures on the car subscription market – the results of a comprehensive desktop research. With the Barometer, Invers as a provider of sharing technology wants to offer its readers a solid orientation in a dynamic mobility market and encourage further exchange.
