TREVO the latest People-to-people car sharing marketplace launched in Malaysia

TREVO  - the latest and most innovative people-to-people car sharing marketplace was officially launched by SOCAR Malaysia. The app-based marketplace enables drivers (guests) to book any car that fits their needs and wants from the nearest car owners (hosts) in the Trevo community. TREVO prides itself on constant innovation and one of its key goals is to make it as easy as possible for Hosts to share their vehicles and access new income opportunities. Trust and safety is also a key priority for TREVO and they aim to use both technology and operational expertise to ensure that Hosts’ vehicles are protected at all times.

TREVO - incorporated as Future Mobility Solutions Sdn Bhd, is a fully-owned subsidiary of SOCAR Mobility Malaysia Sdn Bhd (SOCAR). SOCAR itself is 60%-owned by SK Holdings – part of South Korea’s SK Group, and 40% owned by SOCAR Korea*.

“It’s a well-known fact that car ownership in Malaysia is amongst the highest in the region with 93% of households owning at least one car. However, with real wage growth slowing down over the past few years, we acknowledge the financial burden that comes with owning a car. With TREVO, we are showing our commitment to the multiflex ecosystem by allowing a new segment of users who want to make money from sharing their cars when they’re not using them to alleviate the financial burden of servicing a hefty monthly auto loan instalment. For the TREVO Guests, we hope to be able to curate best in class vehicles in terms of selection and quality at very attractive prices. Ultimately, TREVO is about driving people forward towards achieving their financial and lifestyle goals,” said Mr Leon Foong, CEO of SOCAR Mobility Malaysia.

Malaysia has one of the world’s highest ratios of private car ownership (93%) and the highest incidence of multiple car ownership per household globally (54%)**.

With TREVO, Guests can loan a car from as low as RM55 per day for a Perodua Myvi or treat themselves to a luxury experience by loaning a Rolls Royce for a day of pampering. They can choose from compact cars and hatchbacks, sedans and coupes and SUVs and 4x4s.

For Hosts, they can easily cover their monthly car instalments as long as they share their cars for at least 6-8 days a month. Hosts are empowered to choose their own pricing as long as it falls within the pricing band that the TREVO algorithm provides. Corporate Hosts such as car rental companies can also list their fleet on TREVO.

The TREVO app is available for download on Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store.
