Peer-to-peer carsharing marketplace Turo has released Turo Go, a new feature that allows guests to locate, book, and unlock cars instantly from the Turo app. Starting today, Turo is opening an early-access waitlist for hosts to get Turo Go connected car hardware installed in their cars when it's available in select cities this fall.
Turo Go hardware will empower car owners to remotely lock and unlock their cars, automatically track mileage, and geolocate the car. In addition to making the experience of owning a car smarter, and the experience of sharing it safer, Turo looks to use Turo Go's connectivity applications to improve its customer experience — both for busy Turo hosts and for guests craving instant mobility.
In the future, in addition to supplying hosts with this connected car technology that can be installed in any car, Turo envisions working directly with automakers to integrate the Turo app with connected vehicles coming off the line.
