The Coolest Micromobility Vehicles in the Scene - Ep. 1

22 Feb 2022    |    4 min read

No one wants to be stuck in traffic when there are other options. The solution may be as simple as sharing. Plus, in a world of environmental and economic uncertainty, it’s no surprise that the idea of sharing and micromobility is quickly becoming more popular.

The trend of shared transportation has increased tremendously in recent years, owning to various factors, such as rapid urbanisation, increase in environmental issues, limited resources of energy, and economic concerns, which are expected to further boost the global shared mobility market over the forecast period.

Only in Italy, more than 5.5M users benefit from sharing services. In Italy, sharing started in the major cities (Milan, Rome, Florence, Turin) and is now proving to be a widely appreciated service suitable for smaller municipalities too.

In 2021 GreenMo Rent, a partner of Vaimoo, operated more than 30,000 electric sharing vehicles in seven European countries. That shows how the industry is growing fast, making a perfect investment opportunity.

With that said, e-vehicles owners and operators need to know the best sharing vehicles to buy or invest in. But with so many options to choose from, it can be hard to decide which one is the best.

We are here to help, let’s give a look at some of the most astonishing micromobility vehicles in the scene!
