At a time when society has changed and is moving more and more towards a collaborative economy environment, there are many companies that have been developing new business areas where their mobility system is collaborative. One of those has been Volvo, which for several years has had a shared mobility system. Better known as Volvo Car M, with 250,000 registered customers and more than one million trips made, is now renewed, being one of the most innovative projects of the firm.
Volvo on Demand is the new service that will be developed and managed by Volvo Car Mobility, which aims to change car ownership and encourage urban mobility. It is a platform that will offer the best possible alternatives in the market to access any type of client to its services. To do this, they have made an important innovation and new organizational system where the strategy of the collaborative economy it is in the foreground, offering a safe and sustainable circular business. Of course, only this service model is available in Sweden.
With the aim of reaching its maturity in 2040, we find that in the Swedish cities where the car-sharing and on-demand service works, it is really fruitful, with a higher use than expected and with a fairly complete volume of work. In that aspect, with a single shared car the use of up to nine proprietary models can be avoided, which in the long run can mean a reduction of more than 16,000 tons of CO2 per year.
The volvo on demand service is ready to set new milestones in the history of urban mobility and proposes a new model of life, where sustainability, and economic savings, together with better time management is paramount. To make this possible, the Swedish firm has not hesitated to adapt all possible information from the brand’s artificial intelligence into a unique model on the mobile phone. In this way, all algorithms work perfectly to manage the offers and demands of the moment.
