A new easy way to use a car

We provided Lahti region with full electric cars for carsharing. The cars are easily accessible in the city centre of Lahti in four pick-up points located in Toriparkki (at the marketplace) and in the parking halls of Prisma Syke and BW Tower. You can make a reservation at any time simply by using the mobile app.

Using the carsharing service is easy, and with a full battery you can even drive a round trip from Lahti to Helsinki.  You can find how-to videos and frequently asked questions at the bottom of this page.

How to charge the cars

Kauppakeskus Syke

BT Tower Lahti Rautatieasema



Outdoor charging points and parking garages have places for the cable and the plug on the car side where the cable and plug should always be placed when disconnected from the car, not in snow and not on the ground/garage floor. In snow and unclean plugs, the charging will not work, please make sure that you always put the cable and plug in the designated place.

Frequently asked questions

Here you can find answers to some common questions about the carsharing service. If you do not find the answer to your question, please contact our customer service on 03 522 4220.

A fully electric car is a new thing for many and an even newer thing is that the car is a shared car. What does this mean? A shared car is one that any of us can rent for their use for as long as we want.

Cars are easily accessible in the heart of Lahti, Toripark (1st floor, upper level) and in the parking areas of Prisma Syke and BW Tower. In the market park, the area reserved for all-electric cars is located close to the elevator and the stairwell, and you can easily find your way to the parking garage from the C-staircase. When you are looking for a car, all you need is your phone to open the Toripark and the car doors. The car return point is the same as the pickup point.

Our shared cars run on full electricity and you can drive the same distance without recharging the battery for up to 340 km. If you rent a shared car for a longer period of time and drive more than 200 km, you can well charge the car at any charging point at your own expense. There is a charging cable in each of our shared cars.

The Carsharing service is a web app that you can use in a browser on all devices connected to a network. So you don’t have to download the app from the App Store or Google Play app to your phone. We recommend that you save the application rental page as a shortcut to your mobile device home screen for easy access to the application.

Parking is allowed, but charging is not allowed. However, if the car has been charged during the booking, we will charge 0,25s/KW for this at a later date. We always check the transactions after the booking has been finalised, including charging.
