The pilot program will be in six U.S. cities and in London. Customers who finance their vehicle through Ford Motor Credit will be able to rent out their car, SUV or truck.
“We are seeing a lot of folks that don’t want to own a vehicle, and we as a company want to make sure we are listening to customers and see if we can help in that regard,” CEO Mark Fields said. “Customers, particularly in urban areas want access versus ownership.”
The program is being run by Getaround, a San Francisco-based start-up that will oversee the car-share app customers will use to rent vehicles.
