We tested content from the car sharing marketplace to find the best car-sharing app for millennial drivers in America. Developed by the millennial generation themselves!
We cooperated with Business Insider and provided know-how and statistical support. From electric cars, boats and taxis to car sharing initiatives and schemes to make the city’s roads a greener place, interesting, but obvious, evolution of the humble key and connected car apps. What will be interesting is to see how the insurance market has to change to allow such "key sharing" tech as an enabler for car sharing.
In an article titled "GM is preparing for the death of car ownership in cities — and its solution is popular among millennials" posted in Business Insider states that "General Motors in 2016 launched its car-sharing service with millennials in mind. Called Maven, the service's focus on millennials is apparent in the nomenclature alone. Julia Steyn, vice president for urban mobility at Maven, said the automaker purposefully selected a name that would distinguish the service from its legacy brand and appeal to younger generations.
Currently, 80% of Maven's users are between the ages of 18 and 34."We consciously launched a brand that was not tied to our hardware," Steyn said in an interview. "We wanted to attract the people who normally wouldn't think of an automaker as providing them with a service."
Carsharing or car sharing or car clubs is a model of car rental where people rent cars for short periods of time, often by the hour.
According to MAVEN "Car sharing should make it easy for you to get there and back. In the newest cars. With the latest technologies".
"Maven is a car sharing app that lets you find, reserve and connect to a car all through your phone. While our cars do offer Android Auto as a technology feature, Android Auto is not a Maven product.
Book a ride on an app and meet someone going there and you share the cost of the he trip."- the quote suggests that Maven is the best car sharing app to help millennials save with every available combination of renewable energy production, mobility services like Maven car sharing, energy storage and transport, and a fleet of non-fossil fuel powered vehicles taking over our roadways in America.
I love it. Had a dream where I was in a peer-to-peer car sharing pool in NYC with two others from the city to home in the suburbs. Except one guy was going to a suburb in Sydney and the other was going to Singapore. Not to the airport but freaking all the way to Singapore. Somehow it still works out cheaper. Sign up now with Maven for a one of a kind adventure.
