Last week, LEVA-EU member CAKE announced a new partnership with the mobility technology company Volvo Car Mobility regarding its car-sharing service, M.
The first step in this partnership entails the introduction of CAKE’s Ösa utility bike with integrated power, into M’s fleet service operations in Stockholm. So far, M has 150,000 registered users. And since cars from M are used far more frequently than privately owned cars, there’s a huge need for cleaning and service.
This is where CAKE comes in. Its Ösa bike boasts extensive reach, parking agility, the ability to load cleaning equipment, as well as a powerful battery that can run a vacuum cleaner. The M car-sharing service leverages an accessibility model, which aims to match supply to customer demand at every given moment. The goal is to save time, space, and money – for people and for the cities they inhabit.
“It’s a true link between vehicles, dealing with and structuring the mobility chain for the future. Aside from the cleanliness and efficiency with a CAKE Ösa, the rationale for a 2-wheeler, being able to park next to an M car in need of service and cleaning, versus wasting time finding a parking lot and then having to carry vacuum cleaner and cleaning gear, is evident. With M being a part of the transition at large, as part of Volvo Cars, makes this a robust chance for CAKE to show skin and purpose. This collaboration has an incredible potential we hope to evolve further,” says Stefan Ytterborn CEO and Founder of CAKE.
“To be sure, CAKE’s Ösa bike dovetails neatly with our sustainability aspirations. M’s operations team currently uses hybrid cars to service our fleet, which is fantastic. But now they can also use the Ösa bike for some tasks, further enhancing efficiency and shrinking our footprint. I’m also delighted that CAKE was able to configure the Ösa bike to meet our precise specifications and needs. This collaboration plugs directly into our goal of moving people sustainably,” says Steinar Danielsen, Sustainability Lead at M – Volvo Car Mobility.
