Previously, Car2go did trials with a couple dozen larger vehicles in Canada, and found the bigger cars broadened its audience, and led to longer trips. The car-sharing service, identifiable by its blue and white smart cars, will transition to a majority Mercedes fleet by the end of 2017. Six North American cities will be the first to see the luxury sedans in the lineup - Austin, Portland, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver, and Washington, D.C. This move, the transportation company hopes, will actually make it a bit more useful to customers who aren't minuscule, or actually have things to transport in their cars.
Car2go has also sped up the rental process for the new vehicles.
It said it expects its fleet will be mostly Mercedes vehicles by the end of the year.
Car2Go is a vehicle sharing service that's live in some big cities in the United States.
As far as North America goes, Car2go is only available in a handful of cities. Germany's Daimler is not only the parent of Mercedes-Benz, but of Smart and Car2go as well.
Renting the Mercedes will require using your smart phone according to the company.
