Taiwan’s capital is set to test its own electric carsharing service this month, according to the Taipei Times.

Taipei city officials told the news outlet that Ucar will begin with 10 electric vehicles rented from 11 public parking lots.

Ucar has been commissioned to electric car rental company Unicar. The company has developed a carsharing app, which will allow residents to book a rental and pay through their smartphones after having completed a registration process.

Rental rates are tentatively set at 100 New Taiwan dollars for 30 minutes, with every additional minute slated at NT$5.

The city hopes to build off the success of its YouBike and Umotor programs.
