SINGAPORE, Aug. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — An upsurge in Certificate of Entitlement (COE) prices has ignited a demand for car rental and sharing services within Singapore. Seizing this opportune moment, Car Chilli emerges as the newest addition to Singapore’s Car Sharing economy, poised to capture and cater to this surging demand. Following a successful fundraising round that resulted in a seven-figure investment, Car Chilli proudly unveils its car sharing app in Singapore.
Car Chilli connects car owners and car rental companies looking to monetize their vehicles with users seeking flexible, reliable, and affordable transportation options. Through the app, individuals can access a wide range of car rental options. Rental periods are tailored to your needs, whether you require a vehicle for a couple of hours or for longer periods. The company is also one of the few car sharing apps in Singapore that offers short term rental options to people planning a trip to Malaysia.
In addition to inviting car owners to list their vehicles within the app, Car Chilli also forms strategic partnerships with car rental companies to facilitate the onboarding and listing of their vehicles on Car Chilli. “Our objective is to provide car rental businesses with access to technology that helps them amplify their short-term revenue potential but also broadens their brand exposure amongst a new customer demographic.” Said Jimmy Leong, Co-Founder of Car Chilli.
Car Chilli enables a hassle free experience for both car owners and renters by offering 24/7 customer support and providing a GPS tracking and auto-locking system to car owners. This technology allows car owners to track their vehicles and enables a hassle-free rental process as no face to face meet ups are required thus ensuring convenience and peace of mind. A Car Chilli workshop is also available and offers a range of services to car owners, including maintenance, cleaning, and repair, ensuring that vehicles are always in optimal condition and ready for rental.
Founded as a spin-off from a successful car rental company with a 10-year track record in the car rental business, Car Chilli has an existing customer database and fleet of cars that will be available through the app. The app is available for download on the app stores. However, Car Chilli have initially launched in specific locations across Singapore and invited a select group of existing customers to test the app and provide valuable feedback for further improvement. For residents living near Jurong, Hougang, Serangoon, or Sengkang, good news! You can start using Car Chilli in these areas as the app has already been rolled out in these districts with cars ready for hire. The nationwide rollout is scheduled for later this year where Car Chilli aims to have over 1,000 cars available island wide.
“We are thrilled to introduce Car Chilli to Singapore” said Nelson Lee, CEO and Co-Founder of Car Chilli. “Our mission is to provide the community with flexible and affordable rental options, be a technology partner for car rental companies and car owners, to help enhance their income, all while contributing to more liveable cities by reducing congestion and promoting sustainability through shared mobility”. Starting in Singapore, Car Chilli plans to roll out across South East Asia.
