Everybody who’s anybody in the car industry is getting down with mobility, and General Motors is no exception. GM has invested heavily in Lyft and it also has Maven, an in-house mobility brand that offers car-sharing in 17 cities across the US and Canada. Today, Maven and the City of Los Angeles announced they’re collaborating to make over 100 Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles available in the city.
The EVs will be available for people to drive themselves, and they’ll also be accessible to Lyft drivers through the Lyft Express Drive program (which offers weekly rentals of GM vehicles for using with the service).
“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 of 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.”
