"We are testing the adoption of one Maven product - Maven Gig - in Australia through a pilot programme in Sydney renting Holden cars to Uber drivers," Sean Poppitt, communications director at GM Holden, said in a statement.

It is currently operational in San Diego and set to be launched in San Francisco and Los Angeles later this year, GM said in May.
A spokesman for Uber was not immediatley available for comment.
