The Rise of Micro Mobility: Cars designed for everyday mobility
Micro mobility refers to the use of small, lightweight vehicles for transportation over relatively short distances. It includes electric bicycles, electric scooters, and micro cars. In France, 98% of trips are under 80km, and 84% of daily trips are made by car, accounting for 11% of CO2 emissions. However, over the last 20 years, cars have become heavier, more powerful and larger, with 40% of cars sold being SUVs. Micro mobility offers a sustainable, affordable and convenient option for those looking to reduce their environmental impact and transportation costs for short journeys.
