Maven, General Motors’ personal mobility brand, is expanding to the western United States, adding the Denver, Los Angeles and San Francisco markets. In 10 months, Maven has launched three products and has grown to 13 US cities: Ann Arbor, Michigan; Baltimore; Boston; Chicago; Denver; Detroit; Los Angeles; Jersey City, New Jersey; New York City; Orlando, Florida; San Diego; San Francisco; and Washington, D.C.
Pricing in each western market starts at $8 an hour and includes insurance and fuel. There are no monthly membership or application fees. More than 13,000 members have joined Maven and have traveled 28 million miles.
The average Maven City trip is 100 miles, and more than 12 hours. Maven City’s most popular vehicles are the Chevrolet Malibu, Spark and Volt.
Maven is testing future shared mobility services at GM campus car-sharing locations. Campus car-sharing services are currently operating at GM do Brasil headquarters in Sao Cataeno do Sul and at GM Australia/Holden headquarters. The Maven team already has filed seven patent applications to help make car sharing more intelligent.
