Calgary has always loved car2g0, in fact, the city is one of the service’s most popular cities. But for Calgarians, their beloved cars are getting a big makeover and I think people are going to be really excited!

car2go is introducing two new vehicles to their lineup: The brand-new 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLA and GLA four-door vehicles are now available as part of their fleet!  The cars are available to car2go members in Toronto, Vancouver, Austin, Portland, Seattle, Denver and the Washington, D.C. and now Calgarians will be able to take to the streets in style!

So what’s new about the new car2go?  Well, for one: It’s a Mercedes-Benz. Regular users will remember that we had access to about 25 B-250s for a trial-run last year, but now we’ll have access to hundreds of CLA and GLA and they’ll make life in Calgary so much easier.

The smaller car2gos will still be available, but the new vehicles are 4-passenger sedan and a 5-passenger SUV crossover, meaning you’ll have more room for friends, luggage and those epic shopping days.  Other features include:

  • Rearview camera that provides a 180-degree view for added confidence when backing up
  • Blind Spot Assist, which warns drivers when another object or vehicle is in their blind spot
  • Heated front seats
  • Bluetooth
  • Navigation
  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Full smartphone integration including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Hands Free Access to the trunk

The vehicle rate for the new cars will be $0.47/minute, $19/hourly, $79/day rate.

I’ve driven the new cars a few times and it’s really such an enjoyable ride.  I felt like a million bucks, but it didn’t cost me anywhere near that.
