Maven expands 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 service is available now in beta 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 car 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 our website.
After more than 300 million miles driven 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 for additional U.S. launches in the fall.
“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.”
“Maven is a platform designed for sharing and we’ve proven demand exists,” said Julia Steyn, vice president, General Motors Urban Mobility and Maven. “In this beta, we are excited to offer GM owners the opportunity to capitalize on this demand and earn income by listing their vehicles.”
