Fiat Chrysler will use one of its most popular brands to trial some additional mobility services with the help of some notable partners.

Fiat Chrysler establish pilot programs for peer-to-peer car sharing and a separate subscription service, Bloomberg reports, citing an interview with Tim Kuniskis, the head of Jeep's North American operations, at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show.

Both pilot programs will run for three months, and both begin next week.

"We'll find out what's good and what's bad, what customers like and what they don't like, and ultimately from that we'll decide if we want to do this as something we promote to our dealerships at the time of sale," Kuniskis said in his interview with Bloomberg.

For its P2P car sharing service, FCA will hook up with Turo, one of the most prominent companies in that field.

According to Bloomberg, the automaker is working on recruiting owners to sign up and make some money on the side by renting their vehicles out for others to use.
