TAKING THE WHEEL ON CUTTING CO2 EMISSIONS

Co Wheels doesn’t just offer a convenient ride – it’s a commitment to sustainability. The car club is taking strides towards reducing its carbon footprint.

According to a recent study, each vehicle in the Co Wheels fleet takes a whopping 22 private cars off the road, contributing to a 27% reduction in carbon emissions compared to the average car – impressive, right?

Plus, all Co Wheels vehicles are 100% compliant with Low Emission Zones, aligning with the global push for cleaner air and a healthier planet.
