What is a thread or new change for Vietnam self-drving car rental at the present?

Still, car rentals are a big huge dollars industry in Vietnam alone. However, two emerging trends are slowly chipping away at this time-honored tradition.

Trend 1: The New Sharing Economy
Uber and Grab are relatively new livery services that transport passengers around major urban centers, often for a fraction of what conventional taxis charge. This cost advantage hasn’t gone unnoticed by consumers. 

Trend 2: The Rise of Autonomous Vehicles
We’re still in the early days of self-driving cars. But as they become more mainstream, services such as Uber and Grab will increasingly phase out their human drivers for autonomous ones. This transition carries a higher upfront cost, but there are fewer ongoing expenses. If those savings are ultimately passed onto the consumer, the relative cost of renting cars will only increase. 

Instead of buying a new car every five years, the average Vietnamese might take a self-driving Uber car two or three times a day. With more transactions per unit of time, the industry will need smarter and faster payment processing.
