General Motors’ carsharing program Maven continues its expansion with the announcement of its launch in Los Angeles.

Maven users can reserve one of 60 initial vehicles at more than 24 sites throughout Los Angeles, according to GM. Pricing options start at $8 per hour — with fuel and insurance costs included. This is no application fee for Maven members.

For Los Angeles users, the fleet will include the Chevrolet Cruze, Malibu, Tahoe, and Volt; GMC Acadia and Yukon; and Cadillac ATS, CTS, CT6, XT5, and Escalade. Initially, the stations will be located in downtown Los Angeles, Little Tokyo, South Park, and near the University of Southern California campus.

“Los Angeles is a natural fit for Maven because of the city’s incredible appetite for cars,” said Julia Steyn, vice president of Urban Mobility and Maven. “We are excited to offer an elevated carsharing experience with seamless connectivity in a fleet of luxury sedans, electric vehicles, and SUVs.”

In addition to Los Angeles, Maven is available in eight other cities, including Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Detroit, New York City, San Francisco, Washington D.C., and Ann Arbor, Mich.

Maven carsharing members have now driven more than 23 million miles through more than 12,000 reservations, according to GM.
