car2go, the largest, fastest-growing one-way carsharing service in the world, announced that by August 10, its 50,000-plus Montreal members can start driving new all-wheel drive Mercedes-Benz CLA and GLA four-door five passenger vehicles. The first of over 100 new Mercedes-Benz CLA and GLA vehicles make their debut on the streets of Montreal on August 10, and are ready to take Montrealers in style, safety and comfort out to dinner, allow for a fun day out with family at La Ronde, or visit Quebec City.
“The addition of great new Mercedes-Benz car2gos is a response to member demand,” said Jeremi Lavoie, General Manager for car2go Montreal. “These new vehicles are family-friendly, seat more passengers, come equipped with 4MATIC all-wheel drive that’s perfect for the winter months, and also include all of the compelling conveniences, safety features and comforts Mercedes-Benz is known for. car2go members have responded very well in every city where we have added these new vehicles, and we expect to see the same enthusiastic reception among our Montreal members.”
The new vehicles deliver a smoother, faster and improved car2go experience, featuring the latest car2go technology via the carshare service’s free car2go app. This new technology allows members to locate either a Mercedes-Benz or smart car2go and unlock it in a matter of seconds via their smartphone, just as if they had the keys in the palm of their hand. Members can also choose between Mercedes and smart models and see fuel levels all within the app. car2go Mercedes-Benz vehicles will hit the road at 47 cents a minute while smart fortwo vehicles will be available to drive for 41 cents a minute.
