It cannot get any more cheaper
and affordable, because it now costs only Rs 19 to hire a car for an hour. And
you can hire for an hour, for a day or for a week, and the bill would be very
low. Zoomcar, India’s first 100pc self drive car rental service company, has
announced an unprecedented slash in their fares for renting their fleet of Nano
cars. In a first-of-its-kind offer, starting from April, Zoomcar is providing
Nano car on rent for Rs 19 an hour.
The new fare comes into effect
for citizens in Bangalore and will make travelling even cheaper than an auto.
In fact, currently there is no self-drive rental car service company providing
cars at such a discounted rate. Typically if you hire a car in Delhi from a
taxi service, it costs Rs 600 with the driver for eight hours and 80km. It’s
more expensive to get a car without a driver. With this Nano scheme, it works
out to a mere Rs 152 for eight hours. The
Nano car also gives a fuel efficiency of more than 20km per litre of fuel.
Zoomcar had recently partnered
with Tata Motors to add 50 brand new Nano’s to their growing fleet of cars. The
idea of reducing the rates is to tap people who prefer quick get-aways and
short haul trips during Summer.
“It gives us great pleasure to
announce this new fare for citizens in Bangalore. There are many who like to
drive down to nearby locations, especially college going kids for a short trip
during Summers. We believe Nano is perfectly suited for Indian conditions while
it is also one of the most ‘convenient’ modes of transportation. The current
rate has been arrived at; keeping in mind the young crowd that is passionate
about travelling short distance and also to encourage them take up self-drive
as a mode of transport,” said Greg Moran, Co-founder, Zoomcar
At present, Zoomcar has over
1000 cars ranging from utility vehicles to luxury cars including Merc GLA,
Scorpio, SUV, Safari among others, operating in Delhi, Pune and Bangalore.
