Renault Kwid now on Zoomcar’s self-drive program

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 30 Jul 2019


Shared subscription-based mobility provider Zoomcar has announced a strategic partnership with Renault India and has introduced the Renault Kwid hatchback on its marketplace.

Zoomcar subscribers can now avail the Kwid at a monthly subscription fee of Rs 14,999. Zoomcar plans to add over 1,000 Renault cars to its operating fleet across India by 2020. The subscribers can then share the car back on Zoomcar’s self-drive platform which can be used for self-drive bookings by its registered base of 15 million customers for short-term rentals.

As a part of the partnership, Zoomcar will extend some of the most popular models, including crossovers and SUVs, from the automaker to its customers. Zoomcar now has a total of 25 car variants of different brands available under its regular rental model as well as its shared subscription mobility model.

Greg Moran, co-founder and CEO, Zoomcar said, “We are a dedicated marketplace that is addressing a sizeable market void. Our constant endeavour is to keep on widening the automotive options available to our subscribers and Zoomcar users, might it be SUVs, hatchbacks or sedans. To accomplish this overarching objective, we are getting into deep strategic partnerships with leading OEMs in India. We are grateful to Team Renault for joining hands with Zoomcar and cultivating a futuristic and dynamic business relationship.”

In the mobility sector, more OEMs have entered the shared subscription mobility segment targeting new-age customers who prefer the idea of hassle-free ownership with limited liabilities and superior flexibility. Earlier, Zoomcar had launched the Volkswagen Polo for shared subscription, which it claims was sold out within 48 hours of the announcement.
