AutoShare helps your organization meet its environmental commitment. AutoShare's fleet is the greenest of its kind in Toronto with over 25% hybrid vehicles and multiple electric vehicles introduced in 2011. AutoShare is also the only car-sharing provider in the GTA that offsets all carbon emissions for your driving - absolutely free of charge.
Less cars on the road and CO2 in the air
It is estimated that every member of a car sharing organization saves on average about 1.2 tonnes of CO2 per year as a result of changes in their lifestyle. Moreover, each AutoShare vehicle substitues as many as ten privately owned cars on Toronto's roads.
An AutoShare members survey in 2008 has shown that each member relies on a vehicle for only 4% of their travel needs and most often chooses alternative methods of transportation such as biking or public transit once becoming a member of AutoShare.

Canada's first 'plug-in' hybrid for rent
In 2007, AutoShare was the first to add to its fleet a 'plug-in' vehicle - a converted Toyota Prius, equipped with an additional battery and technology to recharge through an electrical outlet and operate solely on electricity for up to 50km.
It was the FIRST such vehicle in Canada, a milestone AutoShare greatly prides itself on.
