Mercedes Allows Owners To Rent Out Their Cars In Germany Starting Next Month

Next month, #Mercedes-Benz customers in Germany will be given the chance to rent out their cars thanks to a peer-to-peer system created by the automaker.

According to Motoring, Mercedes-Benz chief executive Dieter Zetsche said at the Paris Auto Show: “Your car can be equipped with a box that connects it to an online platform. Then your photograph of your Mercedes creates yours car’s profile. It’s like Airbnb for cars. Next you enter your free dates and give thousands of members the ability to rent, unlock and drive your car, all with a smart phone."

Daimler believes that car-sharing programs will become more appealing for owners when electric vehicles are the norm, something it wants to help achieve with the introduction of the EQ range of electric vehicles.

“Our next big step with huge potential is peer-to-peer car-share. Cars are parked for nearly 23 hours per day on average. Why not use this extra time to earn some extra money for the owners?” Zetsche added.
