Maven has expanded its car-sharing platform to include a peer-to-peer offering that enables owners and eligible lessees to earn money by renting their personal Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac car or truck (model-year 2015 and newer) to driving members. The beta service is available now in Chicago, Detroit and Ann Arbor, Michigan.
The new peer-to-peer offering provides a hassle-free way for owners to generate income from their GM vehicle when they’re not using it. Seamlessly integrated into the Maven app, Peer Cars will be available alongside Maven Cars for rental by more than 150,000 current Maven members. Eligible vehicle owners can start the process of listing their car with Maven by enrolling through Maven’s website.
After more than 300 million miles driven (482,802km) and 180,000 reservations, Maven understands that trust is a key enabler to sharing. During reservations, all vehicles are insured through GM’s $1,000,000 insurance policy and every driving member is thoroughly vetted before they are approved to use the service. Owner support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from trained Maven and OnStar advisors.
The Maven team will collect insights and learnings from the beta service for additional US launches in the autumn.
Maven is an on-demand mobility sharing service available through an app. It offers Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles loaded with technology to fit every need – from compacts to electric vehicles to SUVs. Members are able to rent cars by the hour, the day, the week or the month. Maven members enjoy all the benefits of a car without the costs of ownership or membership fees.
“Your car is one of the most expensive things you own. Sitting idle, it is a wasted asset,” said Julia Steyn, vice president, General Motors Urban Mobility and Maven. “It’s time to put your car to work. Maven’s peer-to-peer offering is a smart way for owners to offset their vehicle investment.”
