Okay. Right. buy 1000 cars. Just for a
giggle. Fit them with GPS tracking technology. fit them with a
smart (non manufacturer) entry and ignition system. Fit em with
clever telemetry for speed, location, present user, driving style, fuel
level, vehicle status and black box recording.
Give people an app to run on their smart phone which tells them where the nearest available car is.
Go find the car, use your own key, get in and drive off. Finished
with it? dump it wherever or maybe at the local
Carpool. hit the ‘finished’ button on the dash or hit the
‘hold me for 30 mins’ button.
I think it’s a winner.
Charge users a quid a mile all in. No petrol, no insurance, no fuel, no road tax.
Pay by the usage. Wanna get a car definitely outside your door at 8am? pay delivery from agency.
team of drivers to fuel, service and redistribute the motors. if each
car only does 20,000 miles a year then each car would pay for itself in
just two years (probably)
Get utilisation higher and a
car might pay for itself in 6 months. quid a mile is cheaper than some
taxi journeys these days….
For urban use only, fit bigger tanks and run veggie. run electric. Run solar chargers.
Smart technology recording demand/geolocation and looking for freeloaders, illegal parkers and speeders….
Small (say £1000) deposit which you loose if you interfere with the
systems. Sweet. Keep the costs of the car side down by having a
single integrated black box solution. Use a single car model
only. Advertise that the cars have cameras etc to prevent fraud and
assist in accident cause and have no-one else mess with your drivers…
