Hyundai Motor is planning to launch an electric carsharing service in South Korea this April, according to a report by the Korea Herald.

Hyundai’s on-demand carsharing service will allow customers to choose where to pick up and drop off the vehicles, says the report.

Hyundai will be providing its Ioniq model for carsharing services, which was used in North America for a carsharing test drive. Hyundai hasn’t revealed where the carsharing services will be located or the size of the fleet, according to the report.
