General Motors may have exited the European market with Opel and Vauxhall unloaded onto PSA Groupe, but it may see new opportunities to expand Maven through new avenues.
Automotive News reports GM will continue to operate its car sharing service, Maven, in certain areas across Europe and also still run its OnStar operations on the continent. However, at the moment, GM had no new initiatives to announce.
GM spokesman Vijay Iyer said the automaker isn’t ruling out an expanded Maven platform but also said it’s not a priority at the moment.
“There’s a number of different options the teams are looking at,” he said.
GM is also still working with partners to launch its Maven Home service, which would expand Maven itself to various residential communities and hotels. Iyer wouldn’t say when those programs would officially launch, though.
With Opel out of the picture, Maven could have a real shot at proving to be a revenue creating service in Europe. The continent is seen as a diverse testing ground for mobility service due to a robust transportation network in many European countries.
