Back in 2016, General Motors filed a trademark application to register the term “General Mobility” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The application stagnated following GM’s inability to provide the trademark office with a Statement of Use document. As such, the automaker filed a second application for the term General Mobility is August of 2019, proving that The General was adamant in using the term going forward.
At the time, it was unclear how exactly General Motors would use the General Mobility trademark, leading to speculation that it could be used in conjunction with a tech-focused car-sharing service, or something similar.
Now, however, we know that General Mobility provides support to disabled customers “with vehicles, guidance on adaptive equipment and financial assistance,” per the General Mobility page on the General Motors Fleet website.
“Our vans provide abundant interior space, cargo capacity and accessibility for wheelchair and scooter users,” General Mobility states. “You can also choose from our many truck or SUV options which provide excellent cargo and towing capacity and can be made wheelchair-accessible for a driver or front passenger.”
