Expanding its presence in the metaverse, Maruti Suzuki India has launched ArenaVerse, a metaverse platform for the company’s Arena showroom network. Metaverse platforms are essentially virtual platforms that help companies develop and present new virtual experiences with the use of augmented and virtual reality, among other things.

According to the company, ArenaVerse will allow users to indulge in an immersive virtual experience with Maruti Suzuki vehicles. The new platform is aimed at providing a more interactive and immersive retail experience for consumers who, in the future, will also be able to digitally interact with sales representatives and configure cars as per their needs.
