The two partners didn't reveal details, but is seems that the jointly developed service will rely on self-driving, fully autonomous electric cars.

The test will take place between 5 and 8 March in the Minatomirai district of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture. "The two companies aim to combine the Nissan Intelligent Mobility vision, through technological assets in autonomous driving, vehicle electrification and connected cars, with DeNA's experience in developing and operating driverless mobility services using its expertise in the internet and artificial intelligence".

Called Easy Ride, the vehicles will work alongside a mobile app that enables users to hail one of the cars as and when they need one.

Nissan said a driver will sit behind the steering wheel during the test, though the vehicles will handle the driving mostly by themselves. The test service known as Easy Ride will be open for 2 weeks.
