Along with the electric/hybrid car, autonomous mobility is now one of the main stars of Motor Shows. Although many experiments are taking place throughout the world and many concept cars are being presented here and there, buying a vehicle that will do everything for us is still not completely on!

Cars and sustainability
The choice of an ecological car is mainly based on its fuel consumption, the pollution emitted and the amount of CO2 rejected.
Ecofriendly cars have many assets
To save fuel and money, but also to protect the environment and fight against the greenhouse effect, the choice of car type is important. To buy a sustainable car, you must first of all pay attention to your carbon emissions and display their levels, which has been mandatory in many countrues for many years now.
How manufacturers do it?
There are many ways for manufacturers to reduce the CO2 emissions of their models. They affect engine efficiency, the energy source used (hybrid, electric, biofuel or hydrogen car), the reduction of friction forces (aerodynamics, tyres) or the weight of the vehicle (composite materials, downsizing of the engine).

For several years, P2P car rental has been widespread. Owners can rent their car through a website like Getaround. This formula allows you to rent a car up to 50% cheaper than the usual rental services.
During the car rental period
