How many hours per day do you use your car? Most probably not more than 1 or 2 hours. The rest of the day it just stands there, taking not only space, but also a lot of your money. Eindhoven’s startup Amber Mobility is developing a car sharing platform that should solve this problem. With this service, owning a car might become something of the past. Last week at Hightech XL Demoday, the Eindhoven startup unveiled their electric car, the Amber One.
Order a car by smartphone
The Amber One is an electronic car that can be ordered whenever and wherever you need it. That is, the company guarantees that there will be a car available within half an hour, and the maximum walking distance from your location is 30 minutes. With your smartphone you can preset your preferences, that will be automatically transferred to the car. You don’t even have to return the car to the same place, you can just leave it at the location you arrived at.
