Audi launches a car-sharing service, but only in San Francisco and Miami for now
Audi is launching a premium car-sharing program called Audi at Home, the company announced Monday, if you're fortunate to live in one of its two preliminary locations: the LUMINA luxury condominium complex under construction in San Francisco and the Four Seasons Residences in Miami.
The program puts a fleet of Prestige-trimmed Audis — for a nominal fee, of course — at your fingertips, incuding the S7, S5 Cabriolet, SQ5, TT Roadster, Q7 and RS5 Cabriolet. The German carmaker will "frequently rotate" models so that the fleet stays fresh.
Residents can call down to the concierge to register for the program, then log on to Audi at Home's mobile website to reserve a car. When they're finished, they simply leave the car with the building valet. Drivers will be charged either an hourly or daily fee, which includes cleaning, fuel, insurance, local tolls and unlimited mileage
Pricing details are still unclear, though Mashable has reached out to Audi for comment.
Audi aims to expand the program to other U.S. cities this year, so if you live outside one of these two elite condo communities, you may want to wait before signing a new car lease for 2016; there may be a fleet of Audis outside your front door soon.
