Haupcar Co., a startup company, has launched one of the first short-term car rental apps in Thailand, according to a report by the Bangkok Post.

The company was founded in April, with the carsharing app launching in August for both iOS and Android systems.

Currently, Haupcar has a fleet of 10 carsharing vehicles available for rental, says the report. The service has several locations available in downtown Bangkok.

The company hopes to expand its fleet to 50 cars and to increase its membership to 2,000-3,000 people, according to the report.
