EXCLUSIVE: Australians could soon pay for Uber like Netflix with an expert predicting the nation's automotive sector is undergoing a revolutionary subscription-based boom. 9News

The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries' 2019 sales report showed 1,062,867 new vehicles were sold in the 12 months to December 31 - the lowest total in eight years.

Australian subscription services such as FlexiGo, Carbar and Carly differ from membership programs like GoGet by allowing people to choose their own car, rather than share it. Leasing costs start from $76 per day, on top of a membership fee of $30 a month, for members opting to drive once a week or more.One shared vehicle claims to take 10 private vehicles off the road, freeing parking and reducing traffic.
