Nissan to launch car-sharing service in Japan with new LEAF, Note e-POWER

As part of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan will introduce a car-sharing service in Japan enabling users to experience the company’s advanced technologies in vehicle electrification and intelligence. The service, named e-share mobi, will begin 15 Jan 2018, and will initially feature the new, all-electric Nissan LEAF and the Nissan Note e-POWER.

The service will initially be offered at about 30 stations in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Shizuoka, Osaka, Hyogo, Kyoto, Shiga, Nara, Wakayama and other prefectures in Japan. It will also be expanded to other regions throughout the nation.

Advanced technologies including Nissan’s ProPILOT autonomous driving technology and ProPILOT Park on the Nissan LEAF, and Around View Monitor on both the LEAF and the Note e-POWER, will help support safe driving. Each vehicle will also be equipped with a drive recorder in case of accidents.

e-share mobi will charge no monthly membership fee and no additional distance-based fees. Customers can register without worrying about how often they’ll use the service, or any surprise additions to their total charges. Registered members can also earn discounts at Nissan Rent a Car, and they can use their driver’s license as their membership card, eliminating the need to carry a separate card.

Daily cleaning will keep the vehicles clean and comfortable. Users can get help with navigation and recommended travel routes from a live operator via phone. Each vehicle features an integrated ETC card to pay for highway tolls. (Usage will incur normal ETC fees.)

e-share mobi is a joint business between Nissan and Nissan Car Rental Solutions Co., Ltd. The service uses Smart Oasis Carsharing, a mobility service platform provided by Nihon Unisys that has a proven track record as a system for car sharing services.



Will this be a door-to-door or a station-to-station service?

Leaf and e-note narrow cars may be ideal for cities with narrow streets like Tokyo and Rome etc but may not be spacy enough for our 300+ lbs?
