What is Maven from General Motors?
The General Motors-sponsored car-sharing program, Maven, is already up and running in many of the major metropolitan cities in North America. Maven users are people who typically live in crowded urban centers were having to deal with owning a vehicle isn’t terribly practical. This is still a fairly new concept within the automotive community, so the model continues to adapt. The first major pivot for the program is the introduction of Maven Reserve. The new program revision offers additional services and features which are aimed at refining users’ overall Maven experience. Currently, Maven Reserve is only available on the West Coast of the U.S. but expansion to other areas is very likely.
“At Maven, we’ve matured our platform to meet the dynamic lifestyle needs of our members through multiple sharing solutions,” Julia Steyn, vice president, General Motors Urban Mobility and Maven said in a press release. “Maven Reserve is an innovative approach that answers requests from members for longer-term reservation options.”
How is Maven Reserve different?
From the outset, Maven Reserve is meant to offer users a more flexible pricing structure. With the new sharing program, users can have hourly, daily and monthly payment options. As of right now only the Chevy Tahoe and Chevy Volt are available under Maven Reserve. Just like the standard Maven service, Maven Reserve users can get all of the information they need just from using the Maven app. The application can be downloaded to most smartphone platforms.
Maven Reserve services
Users who opt for Maven Reserve are also eligible for special services. Each Maven Reserve vehicle comes with its own parking space for the entire time a driver is using it. Additionally, insurance coverage and up to $100 worth of fuel are provided. Arguably the best part of the Maven system as a whole is that there are no troublesome fees to worry about.
