car2go has announced that its 118,000-plus members in Vancouver area can now make trips in more advanced smart fortwo vehicles.

Vancouver’s fleet of 1,000 vehicles is the largest in North America, and car2go will continue to upgrade its fleet vehicles through the end of the year.

The new car2go vehicles include these features:

- Unlocks in about five seconds

- Bluetooth access

- Seat warmers

- Provides drivers and passengers with a roomier interior and additional truck storage space

- A new six-speed twinamic dual-clutch transmission

- Safety features including a Tridion safety shell made of ultra-high strength steel, crosswind assist, anti-lock brakes, and air bags.

“We’re excited car2go members in Vancouver will be the first in Canada to experience the new car2go, said Chris Iuvancigh, general manager of car2go Vancouver. “The new car2go is equipped with the technology and features our members have come to love from our four-door Mercedes-Benz car2gos. Now they’ll be able to enjoy these features — including a smoother drive — in a car2go small enough to fit into parking spaces a standard-size vehicle would never fit.”

In the car2go app, the new cars will appear as the “fortwo new” while the prior generation vehicles will appear as “fortwo.”
