How to estimate the profitability of a car sharing provider in Germany?


Hi guys,

does anyone of you have an idea how to estimate the profitability of a car sharing provider in Germany? Let's say of Car2go or DriveNow. It's less likely about if they are profitable or make losses, I'd rather would like to find out how to estimate the revenue potential in Germany!?

Hope you guys can help me!

Many thanks in advance!
