Car sharing is an emerging innovation that may contribute to a transition to a more sustainable mobility system. Most research shows that car sharing programs have a net positive impact on the environment. This report describes the history of car sharing in Norway over the course of four periods that characterize the business models, operational models and user profiles of the various platforms. The rapid increase in the use of car sharing and number of platforms in Norway suggests that the market has proven itself as being viable and that we are entering a period of competition and further change. As the popularity of electric vehicles increases, more research is needed on the non-carbon environmental impacts of car sharing.
