BMW’s Car Sharing Service Comes to Alexa

ReachNow is a carsharing service operated by BMW Group in Seattle, Washington, Portland, Oregon and Brooklyn, New York. It uses a mobile app for car reservations and operates a fleet of over 1,000 vehicles. It is one of three car sharing services in the city of Seattle, competing with car2go and Zipcar. ReachNow is similar to another BMW Group service DriveNow, but is focused on North American cities starting with Seattle.

The ReachNow service has now delivered an Alexa skill, allowing Alexa devices owners in participating areas to use voice commands to say things like…

“Alexa, ask ReachNow where the closest car is.”
“Alexa, ask ReachNow where the closest BMW i3 is.”
“Alexa, ask ReachNow how many MINIs are within a 10 minute walk.”

Where to get it: You can locate the ReachNow Skill in the Amazon Alexa app, enable it using your voice, or use the following web link: ReachNow

Alexa is available for Amazon devices Echo, Dot, Tap, Fire tablets, and Fire TV, but also on iOS, Android, and the web with Reverb.ai.
