SHANGHAI -- China's Geely auto group has introduced an SUV for the sharing economy, with a feature enabling the owner to rent out the vehicle at any time.
The 01 SUV from Zhejiang Geely Holding Group's Lynk & Co. brand went on sale in China Wednesday. The automaker is touting the 01 as the first mass-produced car to come with a standard sharing feature. A share button on a liquid display by the driver's seat will let owners set times when the car can be borrowed by others for a fee. The temporary drivers will then get a special electronic key to unlock and start the car.
