UK car rental service delivers your car via remote control

Emotional, Burning, Unlimited Tuned Laboratory

Vehicles hired through Fetch are piloted to the customer by an operator at a remote location, though customers will still have to manually drive them for the duration of their rentals.

A new car rental service has launched in the UK that aims to deliver vehicles directly to customers without a driver inside. Instead of relying on autonomous driving technology, Fetch — a service launched by British startup Imperium Drive — remotely pilots its fleet of electric cars from the comfort of the company’s head office, providing a ‘driverless vehicle’ experience with the added safety of technically still having a human driver in control.
