One thought on “DTNS 2926 – MD5 Don’t Jive

  1. Hi there!

    Regarding the croove car sharing service. Firstly, it doesn’t sound better in German 🙂

    Secondly, I don’t think Mercedes’ intention with this, is selling cars at all. You might know that they are kind of a pioneer in the whole car sharing business with it’s car2go free float car sharing service. Here you can grab a usually quite new Smart, a Mercedes A-Class, B-Class, GLA or CLA car for a minute price, and then drop it off anywhere within their business area for the next driver to pick it up. (DriveNow is the pendant from BMW).

    They are not trying to sell you anything though, although those shiny new cars are tempting, but on the other hand I can drive brand new models every few months 🙂 They really want to make money with this.

    A lot of people, myself included, just do not own a car anymore, since it’s more of a burden. I sold my car four years ago and I save so much money now. Whenever I need a car, I take a car2go or drivenow (usually you find one to five free cars in a radius of under half a mile) or rent one for the weekend, which is still much cheaper than owning one myself. Of course this works only in conjunction with public transportation, which is quite good in Germany.

    So, I think there is a trend towards not owning a car anymore (especially among younger people in larger cities) and Mercedes wants to have a foot in that emerging market as soon as possible.

    Also, the free float model is only lucrative in large cities, like Berlin, Munich, Hamburg and so on. Car sharing with private cars might also work well in smaller cities, so that might be what they are looking for in the end.

    So. they do have this Mercedes stuffed car sharing service already, and they seem to try something different with croove…

    Just my thoughts.

    Love your show.

    Best regards, Ron
