Car2Go’s parent company, Tel Aviv-listed Shagrir Group Vehicle Services Ltd., runs the Israeli operations of dockless bike sharing company Beijing Mobike Technology Co. Ltd. According to Shagrir’s filing to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, the company intends to roll out thousands of each type of vehicle during its European expansion.

In November, French automaker Groupe Renault announced it launched a fleet of 150 electric Renault vehicles for local car-sharing use in Malta in partnership with GoTo. The company’s only activities in Europe currently are in Malta, where it has been operating since 2017.
