Citroen in France has set up a subscription service for people who need a car for short periods of time, from a month to 12 months, writes Brian Byrne.
The 'Citroen on Demand' scheme offers a choice from three models, the electric quadricycle Ami, the C4 and the electric E-C4. The whole process is carried out online and the vehicle is delivered and collected from the subscriber's home.
Flexibility is a key component of the service, including the ability to continue the subscription on a month by month basis at the end of the original commitment period. It is available to any driver 21 years or older and having held a licence for three years.
There's no indication if the scheme will be available anywhere outside France.
