Ekar is a car-sharing service based in Dubai that provides an alternative to car ownership by allowing customers to rent a vehicle for short-term use. The company's fleet includes a variety of vehicles ranging from small hatchbacks to larger SUVs, which can be rented on an hourly or daily basis through the Ekar mobile app. Ekar's office is located in Dubai, and the company operates throughout the city and surrounding areas. Customers can book a car through the app and unlock it using their smartphone. The service includes insurance, fuel, and parking costs, making it a convenient and cost-effective option for those who only need a car occasionally.

Ekar was founded in 2016 by Vilhelm Hedberg and Stefan Tönningsen. The company has since expanded to become one of the largest car-sharing services in the UAE, with over 1,000 vehicles available for rent in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The company's CEO is Vilhelm Hedberg, who previously worked as a strategy consultant and investment banker before founding Ekar.

The company has received multiple awards for innovation and sustainability, including the Dubai Chamber CSR Label for Sustainable Business Practices. Ekar has also partnered with several organizations to promote sustainability and reduce the environmental impact of transportation in Dubai.
