Mercedes-Benz launches its subscription service in the United States
By: Fedora Atjeh | April 14, 2018
A few days ago we told you about the subscription services that many car manufacturers are already testing in the United States and specifically the launch of the Access by BMW program in Nashville, Tennessee. Today is another German brand that adds to the offer with the so-called Mercedes-Benz Collection.
This service of monthly subscription of Mercedes-Benz will be available as of this summer, but only in two American cities, that will serve as laboratories to develop the system and to verify its good operation and the level of reception on the part of the public.
Interestingly, the Stuttgart brand has also chosen the city of Nashville, as well as BMW, as well as Philadelphia, in Pennsylvania. For its part, Porsche continues to offer its Porsche Passport in Atlanta, Georgia, and "Book by Cadillac" - the Cadillac alternative is available in New York, Dallas and Los Angeles.
In the case of the Mercedes-Benz Collection, several installments will be available from June (the amount of which has not yet been announced), depending on the level of vehicles the customer wants to access: from SUVs and saloons to convertibles, family or Mercedes-AMG versions. In addition, the customer can alternate between vehicles depending on their needs.
To get an idea, BMW asks at least $ 2,000 per month, or $ 3,700 if what we want in the garage is a BMW M model (with the exception of the BMW M2 Coupé, which is available in the first option). Cadillac, for example, has a share of $ 1,800, while Porsche stands between $ 2,000 and $ 3,000, depending on the model.
Of course, the payment includes insurance, roadside assistance, maintenance and, in addition, there is no mileage limit. Everything, by the way, will be managed from a mobile application for smartphone, although interested customers can already register on the program's website.
