Leasys launches Alfa Romeo car sharing scheme U-Go

Leasys is launching U-Go, a new peer-to-peer car sharing scheme that enables its customers to share their car when it’s not in use.

The FCA Group finance arm is initially offering the scheme alongside the Alfa Romeo Giulietta.

Known as U-Go ‘Players’, customers of the new mobility business can sub-let their Giulietta to U-Go ‘Users’ who need a car for a few hours or even a few days.

Leasys says the cars will be available at “advantageous rates” and by sharing the car with other users, owners can reduce their monthly costs.

The platform is accessible online and from an app and allows Players and Users to meet.

It is already live in Italy and is expected to launch in the UK this Septemeber.

Players sign up to U-Go indicating the features of their cars, availability and daily rate. Users can locate a car by city and period of interest, arranging the pick-up and payment directly with the U-Go Player.

At the end of the sharing period they can review each other, creating a community through direct feedback and a peer-review system.

Leasys expects the new business reach 50,000 registered users by 2021.

    Good luck with that in Italy, where every other car has a dent in it …. "Here's the keys to my Quadrifologio. Enjoy!".
