The new Chevrolet Bolt has officially joined the Los Angeles car-sharing fleet as General Motors works to accelerate car-sharing in an eco-friendly market.
General Motors launched a car-sharing brand, known as the Maven, a little over a year ago. Now, the Bolt is the centerpiece of its operations.
Los Angeles residents were quick to grab hold of the Maven with its ecologically healthy vehicle options. Since the launch of the Maven, the city’s fleet has seen membership increase by more than 50 percent each month. It helped that the local government welcomed the Bolt with open arms.
The Los Angeles Maven fleet has more than 1,000 electric vehicle charging stations available to the public, so the city is a prime market for the Bolt.
General Motors continues to work with providers to make the network even larger. Currently, the city’s Maven fleet has more than 60 available vehicles, and 100 Bolts will be added to the area soon.
Los Angeles isn’t the only city where drivers can pick up the Bolt. Maven executives are working to bring it to San Diego and San Francisco. Maven currently has operations in 17 cities, and its expected expansion will soon bring several areas new electric-driving options.
