Nissan has unveiled Easy Ride, a new robo-vehicle mobility service, as well as E-share mobi car-sharing in Japan.

These new operations embody Nissan Intelligent Integration, which keeps customers more connected by inking cars to wider society. Intelligent Integration is one of the pillars of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, the company's vision for changing how cars are powered, driven and used in society.

Nissan and its partner DeNA, a Japanese internet company, are jointly developing Easy Ride, a mobility service which uses autonomous driving technology. It is envisioned as a service for anyone who wants to travel freely to their destination of choice in a robo-vehicle.

The goal is to allow customers to use a mobile app to complete the process from setting destinations and summoning vehicles to paying the fare. A public field test of the service will take place in Yokohama, Japan, from 5-18 March.

The E-share mobi car-sharing service gives users the opportunity to experience Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies, including autonomous driving technologies and electric drive.

The service starts 15 January and will initially feature the new, 100% electric Nissan Leaf and the Nissan Note E-Power.  It will initially be offered at around 30 stations in Japan and will be expanded throughout the country.
