On-demand services continue to be on the rise around the world as technology fuels the convenience of platforms such as Netflix, Spotify and Hulu. There's also been a clear shift from ownership to usership when it comes to transportation. McKinsey finds that the US car sharing market is currently a $US 23 billion industry, and it is predicted that "up to 1 out of 10 new cars sold in 2030 may likely be a shared vehicle." Additionally, BloombergNEF's forecasts that the sales of electric vehicles will surge from ~1 million worldwide in 2017 to 30 million in 2030. Envoy Technologies is helping people be mobile by delivering the convenience and dependability of ownership in service, on-demand. Envoy is not only changing the EV market but commercial real estate as well.
Envoy Technologies, a participating company in the Macquarie Capital Venture Studio (MCVS), is a provider of turnkey electric vehicle-sharing services, offering on-demand vehicles where people live, work and stay (i.e. apartments, student housing, office campuses, co-working spaces, hotels). Envoy equips real estate owners and operators with a new and innovative way to enhance the lifestyle of their tenants, members and guests by providing mobility as an amenity.
