Last year, the car-sharing company launched the Mercedes B250, which made using car2go with friends and kids easier than ever. Well, car2go just announced something even more exciting.

By summer’s end, Calgarians will be able to choose from three different car2go options, including the brand new Mercedes-Benz CLA and GLA! And they look beautiful:

You may have heard rumblings about these news cars joining the car2go line-up, but it’s super exciting that Calgary is the next Canadian city to get two Mercedes vehicles. Calgary is one of the car2go service’s most popular cities, so I can’t wait to see the reaction when people see the cars on the road.

If you can’t wait to see what the new cars will look like, car2go is hosting two special events next week!

On June 28th & 30th, from 11 AM – 5 PM, you’ll be able to check out the cars on on Stephen Ave (between 1st St SW and Centre St.). for a sneak peek and demonstration of the new Mercedes-Benz CLA and GLA car2gos. On top of the demos, you’ll also have the opportunity to win free drive time credit, and there will be some goodies for the first 1,000 car2go members each day.

Then, on June 29th, you can enjoy a savory Pancake Brunch compliments of car2go. Find the new cars on Stephen Ave (between 1st St SE and Centre St.) between 11:00 AM – 4:00pm PM and you’ll also find savory flapjacks and the chance to win free drive time credit. Who says you have to wait for Stampede to get in on some free pancakes!

Still not a member? Well you’re in luck! You can register now for car2go for free and get $10 credit. All you have to do is use promo code HOWDY at

Welcome to Calgary, CLA and GLA car2gos. I think I’ll be seeing a lot of you.
