That Audi partnership is clever. I imagine GetAround kicks back part of their fee to Audi. I wonder what the mileage terms are on the lease.
More broadly, leasing seems like a middle point between renting and owning that could apply to other categories as well — you could lease your snowshoes for the winter, for example. You get the benefits of ownership without the hassle of selling at the end of your commitment, at a cost of course.
