The company car is a real headache for companies. Between cars that are not used enough, cars that have to be renewed and maintained, energy transition, daily management with users, companies spend a lot of energy… If the company car was once the most sought-after benefit, it would seem that nowadays this is no longer the case. Indeed, the arrival of the mobility credit could upset the future of the company car…
Mobility credit soars
With the emergence of new mobility offers such as Mobility Credits, Sustainable Mobility Packages or even micromobility fleets, trends have quickly changed. According to a FREENOW survey, today 77% of inhabitants of large cities are in favour of the introduction of a mobility credit and 59% of business travellers would prefer a mobility credit to their company car.
This says a lot about the lack of interest in the company car, especially in large cities, where parking is often very difficult and rush hours are a real hell. Micromobility and soft mobility services seem to be naturally positioned as one of the most practical means of transport, especially for short journeys.

But that’s not all… 63% of business travellers in their latest survey use their company car to come to work and of these, 31% would like to use a bicycle or electric bike instead. Indeed, most users are becoming more environmentally conscious and are looking for a healthier way to travel.
When looking at CSR and the positive impact on the environment, there are many benefits to using mobility credit. Your users will be able to choose the mode of transport they find most convenient. When you know that transport in Europe is responsible for 27% of CO2 emissions (the largest percentage), it makes you think…
