Maven, GM’s personal mobility brand, is spreading across the US, recently hitting the LA area in recent months. This system is designed for car sharing, and its major goals are to reduce emissions and to increase use of electric cars. Maven is just one of many new programs introduced by GM, each of which builds on technological innovations and creative thinking to improve mobility overall.
According to GM, Maven has had a 56% increase in membership since it was first introduced late last year. The system works through its own platform as well as others, like Lyft, to provide cities with the latest EV products on the market, including the Bolt EV. If you want to share a ride with someone or you’d like to have a car delivered for daily use, Maven makes getting around easy. Plus, vehicles like the Bolt EV significantly reduce greenhouse emissions and save on gas.
“Maven is a smart, seamless and flexible mobility platform providing sharing solutions that meet the different needs of unique communities,” said Julia Steyn, vice president, General Motors Urban Mobility and Maven. “Starting with Los Angeles, Maven will focus on collaborating with cities and municipalities to co-create smart transportation solutions that enhance mobility, create jobs and ease parking and congestion.”
The Maven mobility program was first conceptualized in order to alleviate traffic, though it also reduces mobility barriers for many communities by providing viable electric vehicle options. You don’t have to be a part of the Maven program to see the new Bolt EV—just stop by Bill Harris GM later this year when the Bolt makes its way to Ohio.
