While it never turned to be the April fool’s day joke we had all thought it to be, IKEA’s mysterious ‘Leko’ has turned out to be a new car sharing program launching in France next month. The new program is an online car-sharing service that will allow motorists to book vehicles via the Internet then pick them up at one of 26 IKEA stores located around France.

The program is being run together with Comuto, a more established car-sharing business already in France, and is similar to the one already operating in Austria.

While other car-sharing programs, like Daimler’s new car2go, are aimed at reducing the number of vehicles on the road, IKEA’s new Leko service will likely feature a fleet of compact vans to provide customers with an easy way of taking their bought goods home.

If the program proves successful, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it pop in other markets, including the U.S.
