EY Report on Micromobility Shows VOI’s Latest Scooters Have 71% Lower Impact on the Environment


Micromobility. Moving Cities into a Sustainable Future finds that Voi has reduced emissions by 71% over a year on e-scooters used in Paris by introducing best-practice measures and a new scooter model with a swappable battery.

  • Voi’s Paris scooters now produce 35g CO2 equivalents per person per kilometre, on par with many public transport options
  • Swappable battery scooters and cargo bike operations helped achieve a 51% reduction in emissions
  • Voiager 3 - the latest Voi model with a swappable battery - is expected to have a 24 month lifespan
  • The average emission level of new cars in the EU is 120.4g CO2/km

The report also finds that:

  • E-scooters are being taken up at 4 x the rate of e-bikes
  • There are over 20 million users of e-scooters across Europe
  • E-scooters have accumulated over 300 million trips globally in two years
  • Since launched in California in September 2017, e-scooters have reached 626 cities across 53 countries
  • 63% of Voi’s users have combined e-scooters with public transport

Please see below a statement from Voi’s co-founder and CEO Fredrik Hjelm to go with the EY report and a link to the report Micromobility. Moving Cities into a Sustainable Futurehere.

“Fundamental to Voi’s mission has been our belief that e-scooters and micro mobility can transform the way that people live, work and move through cities. We are delighted to see that EY also recognises the huge benefits that e-scooters could bring to cities and their potential to transform mobility options. In particular we are proud that our efforts to reduce emissions from our Paris operations have demonstrated that e-scooters can be just as sustainable an option as public transport, and produce a fraction of the emissions of new cars. Using insight from real-world data and interviews with city officials, this report shows how e-scooters are making the biggest impact, and where work still needs to be done.”

“We're under no illusion that e-scooters are the silver bullet when it comes to sustainable cities. Nevertheless the improvements we have made to our fleet and the supply chain are already shifting the dial. We very much welcome the report’s conclusion that e-scooters offer unprecedented potential but only when there are clear regulations that foster responsible and sustainable behaviour."

John Simlett, EY’s Global Future of Mobility Leader, says:

“Micromobility is here to stay, reducing emissions as well as relieving pressure on public transport systems, but cities and providers need to work together to seize this opportunity.

“In order to ensure that it takes its rightful place in the urban mobility ecosystem of tomorrow, the next phase of development in micromobility needs to be handled in a more collaborative, integrated and responsible way. This will require clear regulations on responsible and sustainable use, and increasing public access to micromobility infrastructure.”
