Car rental firm Carzonrent and Tata Motors have inked a pact to launch an initiative in the Delhi/NCR region, under which customers would be able to hire a Tata Nano car for self drive at just Rs 399 per day.
As part of the 'Myles City Drive' initiative, Tata Motors would supply 200 Tata Nano Twist cars to Carzonrent fleet for self-drive service in the Delhi/NCR region.
"This association with Tata Motors is a step forward on Carzonrent's endeavour to build long term partnerships with auto manufacturers to develop a dynamic ground mobility landscape in India," Carzonrent Managing Director and CEO Rajiv Vij told reporters in New Delhi.
Under the initiative, Delhi based Carzonrent would also offer the Nano cars to customers on a hourly basis at Rs 99 and also for a whole month at a rent of Rs 6,999.
Customers would also be able to book the car online as well as rent directly from the company's 43 operational centres across the Delhi/NCR region.
Vij said the Myles City-Drive with Nano Twist is aimed at empowering customers and to enjoy everyday life a little more.
Commenting on the initiative, Tata Motors Head Institutional Sales Deepankar Tiwari said: "Through this partnership we will reach out to a larger customer base and give them an opportunity to experience the Nano in a self drive avatar."
Carzonrent, which started Myles (self drive) initiative last year, currently has a fleet of around 600 vehicles under the vertical.
"We started this initiative last year with a fleet of 14 cars. Now the self drive vertical has 600 cars and we expect it to touch 5,000 units by 2016," Vij said.
The company currently offers various cars ranging from Mahindra e20 to Mercedes-Benz under the self drive initiative across 16 cities in the country.
Elaborating on the 'Myles City Drive', Vij said the company would first begin with Delhi/NCR and later expand to other parts of the country.
