While other companies are merely talking about mobility solutions, General Motors has already established a mobility brand that allows for rapid growth and innovation. Maven is creating new business opportunities for GM and making important strides toward the future of transportation.
Maven is a personal mobility app that provides hassle-free, on-demand vehicle access for travel, work and everyday life. Members can choose from vehicles loaded with technology that fit every need: hourly rentals for errands, weekly rentals for freelance work, or monthlong reservations. Maven members enjoy all the benefits of car ownership without the hassle, upkeep and cost. All reservations include insurance. Maven leverages GM’s portfolio of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles.
Maven members have already travelled more than 250 million miles (including more than 6.5 million all-electric miles).
This presentation will address the business of Maven, and how mobility has changed and is changing. It will highlight each of Maven’s three core products and discuss member demographics.
