Sustainable mobility for a better future

In March 2020, KINTO launched KINTO One, a new offer providing all the benefits of driving a new car, without having to own one.

KINTO One users pay a monthly fee for an all-inclusive leasing service. And, with a direct connection of the app to the car, users receive rewards and bonuses for driving smart.

As our vision is to be the preferred service provider for every mobility need, Warikan KINTO is a step further on our roadmap.

A partnership to drive change

KINTO is always looking to be at the forefront in driving positive change and meeting customer needs.

Customer feedback showed that KINTO One users wanted to use their cars more efficiently, and to split the cost of ownership. In direct response to this feedback, KINTO and Greater Than developed a free and easy solution for KINTO One customers to share their cars between friends and family.

Developing a customer-centric solution

The result was Warikan KINTO, a platform that includes user-friendly functionality to make P2P sharing hassle-free. Features include:

  • Multifunctional cost splits including “equal split” “usage time” and “usage mileage”
  • Car booking via shared calendar
  • Chat
  • Driver feedback
  • Driver star rating

Future-proofing mobility services

With Warikan KINTO, users have access to a vehicle when they need it, while being able to choose with whom they want to share the car and how to best split the cost.

KINTO Japan and Greater Than’s development of the solution demonstrates how mobility providers can utilize AI to meet evolving customer demands and pave the way for an era where cars can be shared in a flexible and fair way.
