If you’re willing to experiment with the ownership of the car you drive, you should know that there are car subscription services. And no, we’re not talking about the shared electric vehicles that can be found in some cities. We’re talking about your own private car.
Volvo offers this car subscription service, which it has called Care by Volvo. For a monthly quota, which in Spain begins at 685 euros, the user can drive a Volvo CX40. He can change the car every 24 months, and the insurance, vehicle inspection, repairs and maintenance are all included.
And there’s more: the service includes a personal assistant, a babysitter, a driver, home delivery of pharmaceuticals and a tour guide.
The car subscription service is also offered in Sweden, the UK, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland and the United States, although many other countries (not yet revealed) will join the list.
Other brands are experimenting with similar car subscription services: BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Cadillac and Porsche have similar schemes although they cost considerably more.
