Studies have been conducted to highlight the effects of electric vehicles (EVs), automated vehicles (AVs), and the growth of “Mobility as a Service” (MaaS) on transportation infrastructure usage from now until 2051. McKinsey & Company is one of many who made mention that this future is at our doorstep. These transportation disruptors are projected to impact people’s behavior and the way they own and utilize automobiles in the future, redefining how they conceive about our future transportation and mobility networks. Such technologies also offer solutions to our traffic problems but are likely to differ by city topography.
“Mobility-as-a-Service” has become a well-known term in contemporary transportation discussions. The growth of and long-term vision of mobility as a service will be comparable to a utility service, one that is affordable and accessible to all. We are a lifestyle industry truly transforming individuals away from asset ownership requirements to a more on-demand, accessible, and sustainable service.
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) enables data to be communicated across various modes of transportation, allowing for smooth transportation planning, reservation, and payment. The trend has been one where mobility services over the next 30 years or so take a vital role across multiple industries and services.
More than just simply a method of application enabling users to move between Point A and Point B, users will get to experience the convenience and flexibility of a service that will not handicap them into the high cost of owning and maintaining a vehicle. MaaS business model will become a more viable option for most people ending the narrative that people living in urban centers primarily rely on ride-sharing services for transportation.
As a result, they acquire the “as-a-service” result of moving from one location to another. Examples such as London’s cycle hiring system and the widespread use of ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft have proved the popularity of the operating model and the indirect advantages.
eMaaS, or electric Mobility as a Service, is an anticipated extension of MaaS, extending the MaaS idea even further by ensuring that the route is both “eco-friendly” and accessible.
Electric vehicles (EVs), powered by electric motors and a battery, have risen to the ranks of a combustible engine. We here at Ameridrive offer both but our customers have the option of choosing which option will best suit their needs. EVs often offer less harmful emissions, can be cheaper to operate per mile, and lessen transportation’s reliance on fossil fuels, in addition to decreasing carbon emissions.
Most of the world’s leading automakers have introduced purpose-built electric vehicles. Some have taken significant steps to release complete electric vehicle lineups as a strategic investment in the concept. Carbon emissions are accounted for by personal vehicles and small diesel vehicles. Therefore, the immediate “pump-to-tire” advantages of electric vehicles are substantial.
According to recent research, technological advancements and increasing affordability are the driving forces behind an expected spike in electric vehicle sales over the next decade. Globally, two million electric vehicles were sold in 2016. By 2025, it is expected to reach seven million. Ameridrive is an industry leader by being one of the first to adopt this new technology of giving users a sense of freedom and flexibility to choose any car that the user wants to drive.
We can see how the opportunities presented combine to address two significant challenges in the current transportation paradigm. Electric vehicles enable substantial improvements in private transportation’s direct, pump-to-tire impacts, one of the most effective steps toward long-term achievements in this space. Mobility-as-a-Service is a revolutionary first step in achieving significant improvements in the systematic impacts of private transportation.
While electric vehicles are not a novel concept, their past success has been hampered by internal combustion engine technology advancements, rapid manufacturing, and relatively low gasoline prices. If you are someone who wants the flexibility of having a vehicle but doesn’t want to deal with the hassle of ownership then Ameridrive’s MaaS car subscription program is right for you. No insurance cost, maintenance, or paperwork, you get to drive a variety of vehicles on your terms.
The electric vehicle market is at a crossroads and Ameridrive stands at the forefront, providing consumers with a comprehensive and environmentally responsible solution. Forever changing the transportation and mobility space through leveraging such technologies so you, the customer, not only has an improvement in lifestyle but also are on cutting edge innovations.
