Oslo, Nov 17, 2021 - Two years after being acquired by Getaround, Norwegian carsharing leader Nabobil officially joins the European platform’s operations and provides its users with a unified app and services, available in hundreds of cities across 7 countries in Europe.
Getaround reinforces its global leader position, driven by the ambition of improving the quality of life in our cities and communities. The mobility revolution is on its way, and the pace of innovation is even higher.
From neighbourhood service to global carsharing
Ever since it was started back in 2015, Nabobil has been a market leader in carsharing in Norway, with thousands of users and available cars.
Nabobil's transition to the Getaround platform is not just a name change, but a significant upgrade of the service and reinforcement of the team behind it. By joining Getaround Europe, Nabobil now has access to expertise and resources that benefit Norwegian carsharers.
'As part of Getaround, we can offer the world's best and safest carsharing platform to new and existing users in Norway. We’re going from being a neighbourhood challenger to offering a global service. This important integration is a huge milestone. From a few dozen people working on a local platform, we’re now part of a big global team that develops connected carsharing for millions of users. We have the expertise and resources to continue to be at the forefront, and to become an even better alternative to owning your own car in Norway.', Even Heggernes, General Manager of Getaround Norway.
