The BMW Group and Daimler AG are joining forces: the two companies signed an agreement to merge their mobility services business units. BMW Group and Daimler AG plan to combine and strategically expand their existing on-demand mobility offering in the areas of CarSharing, Ride-Hailing, Parking, Charging and Multimodality.

The merger will promote electromobility, for example, by offering electrified CarSharing vehicles, as well as easy access to charging and parking options. As a result, it will become even easier to experience and use sustainable mobility services.

The equally-owned joint venture model is designed to combine services in the following five areas:

  • Multimodal and on-demand mobility with moovel and ReachNow
  • CarSharing with Car2Go and DriveNow
  • Ride-Hailing with mytaxi, Chauffeur Privé, Clever Taxi and Beat
  • Parking with ParkNow and Parkmobile Group/Parkmobile LLC
  • Charging with ChargeNow and Digital Charging Solutions.

The joint project is subject to examination and approval by the respective competition authorities.
