Customers are able to rent from a diverse fleet of GM vehicles, including the Malibu, Chevy Volt and luxury Cadillacs, through the Maven app.

For now, Maven is only available in downtown Los Angeles, Little Tokyo, South Park and near USC.
Customers has a fleet of 60 vehicles to choose from at 24 sites.
