car2go is scheduled to start in Hamburg in spring 2011 respectively. A total of 300 Smart Fortwo will then be available to customers, which are distributed throughout the city. In Hamburg, car2go customers have to pay a one-time fee of 29 euros to register.

Carsharing in Hamburg costs 29 cents per minute or a maximum of 14.90 euros per hour. This includes fuel, insurance, kilometers driven, taxes and parking fees. Other costs are not incurred. Anyone who registers with car2go also benefits from special advantages with the car rental company Europcar.

The 300 new Smart cars that are being made available as part of the car2go project in Hamburg all have a single-power solar roof from Webasto of 100 watts. The energy obtained in this way cools down the inside of the vehicle before driving, which is also intended to reduce consumption.
