Maven Gig Service Hits Austin Ahead of SXSW

Maven has launched its Maven Gig offering in Austin, just ahead of SXSW when there will probably be a fair amount of ride-hailing and on-demand food delivery activity.

Maven Gig is the arm of GM’s Maven mobility brand that caters specifically to gig economy workers, with cars available to freelancers who drive only occasionally, and only essentially to offer ride-hailing services via Lyft and Uber, or delivery through things like Postmates and Uber Eats.

Maven Gig will have 20 Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles in service in Austin starting today, which are available for flat rate weekly rentals that also including unlimited mileage, insurance (minus deductibles) and any maintenance costs. Charging will be free for a limited time using the Austin Energy Plug-In EVerywhere and EVgo networks, and pricing for rentals starts at $229 per week plus taxes.
