International vehicle-sharing company GoTo Global has received $5 million from global mobility group ASTARA after entering into a strategic investment agreement from said company.

This comes as part of a pre-IPO Round and follows an investment of $6 million raised from the company’s existing investors.

ASTARA is one of the largest automotive and mobility services groups in the world, with presence in three continents, 16 countries, and with a turnover of €4 billion and over 200,000 vehicle sales in 2021.

Bertrand Attard, GoTo Global’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), took to social media to celebrate this milestone.

“We’ve just announced another big step on our journey. Astara joins GoTo Global as a strategic investor and underscores we are on the right path – determined to continue to change the shared mobility landscape,” he wrote.

“We now look forward to what’s next on this journey with the great GoTeam,” he continued.

GoTo currently operates in Israel, Germany, Spain, and Malta, and offers users an array of vehicles, including cars, bikes, electric scooters, and mopeds. To date, GoTo’s 5,800 vehicles have been accessed by over 450,000 users, with nearly three million rides and $22 million in revenues reported in 2021.

“Today is a big step on our journey to making shared multimodal mobility accessible to all,” GoTo Global CEO Gil Laser said.

“The arrival of a group with the scale, experience, and track record of ASTARA as an investor in GoTo really demonstrates that we are on the right road,” he continued.
