We reported in detail when CarZ had announced its plan to come up with outlets at many major cities across the country. CarZ was founded in 2008 by two auto enthusiasts & experts, Mr. Venu Donepudi and Mr. Vijay Gummadi, who returned to India after a long stint at US, Europe and Middle East working at GM and Chrysler in the research division handling robotics, with a vision to establish India’s leading, independent, multi-brand car service network where cars from big names like BMW, Lamborghini, Maserati and Bentleys can be serviced under one roof. The good folks at CarZ also undertake restoration of vintage cars and have worked on popular old cars like 1940 Austin 10 and Morris minor.
CarZ which commenced operations in Hyderabad in 2008 has now marked its entry into Chennai- the Detroit of India. Music composer and singer Yuvan Shankar Raja officially inaugurated the new outlet. The first outlet in Tamil Nadu which is located in Mettukuppam, Chennai, takes CarZ presence in four States with 17 outlets. CarZ will be adding another 10 centers in Tamil Nadu in the next 12 to 24 months, with an investment of close to 2 million USD.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Venu Donepudi, Founder & Managing Director of CarZ said, “Every fifth person in Tamil Nadu owns a vehicle, which augurs well for us.

Considering this huge market opportunity, we are delighted to spread our wings into Chennai, which is popularly regarded as the Detroit of India, and one of the most anticipated markets for any automobile company to be in.”
