Audi has decided to join the trend and come into competition against General Motors' maven and BMW ReachNow. The company will launch Audi Share Fleet by next year, which is an app-generated car sharing service. What are the specs and features?
Four 2017 A4 Sedans have been deployed by the company for generating the incoming Audi Share Fleet - an app-generated service for customers who wish to utilize vehicles temporarily and nonexclusively.
The said Audi Share Fleet was defined as a running car-sharing pilot program for the company, which would first see the light of day in North Carolina. The customers would be able to pay by the minute or hour to use four red 2017 Audi A4 sedans, according to Auto Blog.
On top of which, the users would be able to locate, claim, and unlock the cars for the service and would be timed while they are using it. Payment options have not been revealed by the company but were deemed to possibly be through online payments as the users would be utilizing the app for the services.
Why North Carolina
North Carolina has been deemed to cater to tech-industry Millennials, which were considered the target market of the service. They were deemed to be the people who would most likely need a car but would not be income sufficient to purchase their own vehicles. With that, more than 700 people work in American Underground, the technology incubator provider for the program. The said people were expected to be the most frequent customers of the service, according to Cnet.
When Will The Service Be Available?
Per recent reports, the company is currently testing the service in Durham. Its initial trial would then be followed by a nationwide launch of the application to be utilized for the service. The Audi Share Fleet has finally decided to join the trend for car sharing - the next big thing for the millennials of tomorrow.
