Driven - Startup Spotlight: Tarun Kajeepeta, Condor Detroit
Say goodbye to vehicle lease commitments and expensive long-term car rentals and opt in for a more convenient and flexible experience. Through Condor Detroit’s platform, you can now drive the car of your dreams with a month-to-month car subscription—without a long-term commitment.
The Detroit-based car sharing startup features a simple, digital interface for customers to book a personal car by the month. By creating an online account, answering some basic driving history questions, then selecting a vehicle package and delivery location, customers can book a personal car for immediate use and keep the vehicle as long as they like.
A car subscription through Condor Detroit is a flexible alternative for consumers who lease vehicles as well asvisitors and new residents who come to the area for short, yet extended, periods of time where long-term vehicle rentals could be costly. Condor also provides businesses with another option for those looking to increase their fleet vehicles for employee use without a long-term contract.
Condor Detroit recently took up residence at the PlanetM Landing Zone, a coworking space allowing startups and businesses to connect, share, collaborate and drive innovation in next-generation mobility in downtown Detroit.
“Vehicle subscriptions are the natural evolution of car leasing and car sharing,” said Tarun Kajeepeta, founder of Condor Detroit. “And it just makes sense that we would kick off this service in Detroit, the epicenter of automotive and future mobility.”
Drivers can pick from a range of entry-level sedans and SUVs to luxury sports cars through Condor Detroit. Subscriptions start at $529 per month—about $18 a day—which includes all insurance, maintenance, repair and vehicle registration. Learn more at condordetroit.com.
