- Nissan is the latest carmaker ramping up sharing activity
- More automakers are developing carsharing programs in-house
Carsharing and automaker alliances in APAC by automaker country
On Dec. 8, Nissan Motor Corp. launched a new fleet-based car sharing program called e-Share Mobi. The program offers access to the Nissan Leaf battery electric vehicle and Nissan Note e-Power hybrids across 30 stations in Japan. Nissan was already running an ultra-compact electric vehicle sharing program in Japan called Choimobi Yokohama. Across APAC, auto manufacturers are using car-sharing programs to serve consumers in high-density urban environments and introduce consumers to new technologies. With future direct sales of vehicles to consumers threatened by new mobility-on-demand solutions — ride-hailing apps for example — car manufacturers are increasingly investing in car sharing.
