The rental car service will begin in line with the start of the Setouchi Triennale 2013 Summer festival to be held on the island from July 20, the six units will be offered as rental cars to visitors for their transportation and to provide an opportunity to experience transportation with ultra-compact mobility.

Usage charge will be ¥8,400/day (US$83.67/day), including taxes and charging fee.

Nissan has been working on a variety of pilot projects in cooperation with local governments and companies, and will continue to promote the creation of new mobility platforms under the Ultra-compact Mobility Certification System by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
