GM dramatically scales back its Maven car-sharing service

GM's car-sharing program, Maven , is leaving eight out of the 17 cities it serves across North America, according to The Wall Street Journal . Maven never quite made it big and only ever became available in a handful of locations -- in fact, while WSJ mentions 17, the service's list of cities only has 12 entries. It sounds like instead of expanding to more locations, the automaker decided to focus on its strongest areas instead. A spokesperson told the WSJ : "We're shifting Maven's offerings to concentrate on markets in which we have the strongest current demand and growth potential."
