More car subscription services are having problems. According to at Autoblog, Automotive news at learned that Audi and BMW respectively terminate and discontinue their services. Audi ends its Select program on Jan.31 without mention of a revival, while only Nashville’s Access by BMW closes as the automaker develops the “next iteration” of the service.
The two brands did not specify their decisions. However, when Mercedes-Benz closed the collection, it spoke of poor demand and complaints about the hassle of changing personal items between vehicles. Although it was not mentioned at the time, the COVID-19 pandemic did not help matters. People travel less, if at all, and may be more interested in savings than the flexibility of changing cars.
