Cars are lazy. Most spend the overwhelming majority of their time doing nothing, sitting parked in streets, driveways or garages. According to some estimates, cars are parked for 96 or 96.5 percent of their time.

Car ownership is baked into our culture, but does it really make sense to have such an expensive asset that is used so rarely?

Let’s compare the typical car with a vehicle in the sharing economy. The video above shows the busiest Car2Go in North America from April 5. The Vancouver car was driven by 24 people on that Saturday, with an average trip of four miles and 25 minutes. The car isn’t used from about 2 a.m. to 9 a.m., but otherwise it rarely goes an hour without making a trip. (The busiest period occurs about 24 seconds into the clip.)
