General Motors is playing ahead of the game with its latest expansion into the "freelance mobility economy" with Maven Gig, which lets you rent a vehicle at even a week at a time, and then use it to be an Uber, Lyft, Instacart, Rodie, or GrubHub driver.
The vehicle you get for $229 per week is the Chevy Bolt, an electric vehicle that will let people "get their side hustle on", but don't own a car - I'm loving the side hustle angle, it's very Gary V. GM adds that 43% of America's workforce will be "made up of workers who freelance".
Maven is already providing vehicles for ride sharing use in 11 areas, which cover 9.3 million miles. GM will be able to get more Bolt's onto the roads, and people behind Chevy wheels - with Maven Gig launching in San Diego immediately, and slowly into San Francisco and LA by the end of the year.
