Since Karl Benz invented the modern automobile in 1885, Germans have always loved their cars. But if recent trends are anything to go by, this looks set to change.

Germans are giving up their cars and starting to share. Germany has the largest number of car-sharers in Europe, and in many cities cars can be picked up easily and dropped off anywhere within city limits.

Each shared car replaces between four and eight that are individually owned, and manufacturers such as BMW are now developing cars solely for the sharing market.
