Freedom to move sustainably.

Together we're removing cars from the streets of our cities.

Looking back at another year of car sharing with On Demand, we’re thrilled with the improved environmental impact we can already see, and we’re equally excited about what’s in store for 2022 and beyond.

Together, we’ve removed an estimated 12 000 privately owned cars from the streets of Sweden’s largest cities. 

Thank you for sharing!

Every car from Volvo On Demand removes up to 9 privately owned cars.

We’re changing the way we think about car ownership for a more sustainable future. 

As a direct effect of our customers On Demand membership:

  • 25% of On Demands customers have sold a car after joining us
  • 51% of On Demands customers have postponed their planned car purchases

Together with our customers, we have removed the need for an estimated 12,000 privately owned cars. That corresponds to four percent of new vehicle registrations in Sweden.

For the last 100 years, our cities have been designed around cars. Yet our cars sit idle for 95% of the time – costing unnecessary time, money, and space.

Today in Sweden, we have an average of 50 m2 of parking space per person but only 42 m2 of living space.*

From parking 
– to parklife.

By sharing cars, On Demand has made it possible to reclaim 128,000 m2 (approximately 18 football fields) for other purposes, such as more green infrastructure or living space.

This is how much space we’ve freed up in each region:

Together we reduce emissions to help the world breath easier.

Our goal is that half of all our cars will be electric or hybrid by the end of 2022.

By being part of On Demand you contribute to a CO2 emission reduction of 16 000 CO2 tons per year. That equals the total yearly CO2 footprint of 1 777 people living in Sweden.**

A sustainable future.

Creating smarter, healthier, and more sustainable cities is one of our core driving forces. By working together with cites, politicians, urban planners, and contractors, On Demand can contribute towards several of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
