The self-drive car rental market in China is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 26%. The Chinese government is taking various measures to restrict the registration of new private vehicles.
“The rising pollution levels in the region, as well as the level of congestion on the roads, is making people withdraw from their decision to buy new cars, thus, paving the way for car rentals,” says Praveen.
The Chinese car rental companies such as CAR are targeting about 203 million people who are licensed but do not own a car. CAR is the leading self-driving car rental company in China, with around 31% of the market share in 2015. The company manages its own fleet of cars, ensuring passenger safety. Moreover, new government regulations regarding passenger safety would have the least impact on self-drive car rental market because customers themselves are the ones driving the car and hence, the liability of passenger safety rest solely on the customers.
