      Turo Partners with Continental to Offer Keyless Mobility Experience

      • Turo Go launches at the LA Auto Show, powered by Continental’s Key as a Service aftermarket solution
      • Ten million Turo customers will have access to instant mobility through the application

      Los Angeles, November 27, 2018 -   Continental and Turo announced a collaboration to bring instant mobility to users through the exciting new application, Turo Go. The growing community of Turo members will now be able to book and unlock cars at the touch of a button through the smartphone application. This feature will provide a seamless car booking experience to Turo users that don’t always have the time to deliver keys in person. Turo Go will be launched in Los Angeles during the LA Auto Show and expand to new markets in the coming months.

       “We are pleased to work with Turo to offer our Key as a Service (KaaS) aftermarket solution technology to their growing customer base,” said Jennifer Wahnschaff, head of Intelligent Transportation Systems business unit at Continental. “With shared mobility becoming more universal, KaaS can enable a simple, customized and secure experience to millions of customers.”

      “Today, we are pleased to launch Turo Go, which empowers guests to instantly book, locate and unlock cars from the Turo app. Turo Go brings us one step closer to achieving our vision of a world where you can access a car any time, anywhere, fueled by our vibrant community of trusted Turo hosts,” said Turo CEO, Andre Haddad. “With the launch of Turo Go, the Turo community can now choose between the widest selection of convenient ways to start a trip, including having a car delivered to a unique location, meeting with a fellow car enthusiasts for a key exchange, or kicking off a trip from the Turo app.”

      Continental’s Key as a Service (KaaS) aftermarket solution offers seamless user experience for secure vehicle access, start authorization and accurate car data. This highly scalable solution eliminates the need for a physical key across a multitude of manufacturers and models. If preferred, KaaS is also offered as a solution which is already embedded into the vehicle's architecture. No more lost keys, no more looking for hidden keys, in this case the phone is the key.

      Turo hosts can now offer greater convenience to users than traditional car rental companies, with the majority making their cars available on-demand and via instant booking. With innovative partnerships across the travel and automotive industries, such as the one with Continental, Turo is continuing to strengthen its position in the transportation marketplace.
