When you put the most affordable car in the world and then go on to recruit over 200 of them for people to drive around in them for lease, you possibly get a brilliant business idea or, a lot of unused Nanos lying around staring at people. Under the ‘Myles-city drive’ scheme offered by Carzonrent, one can opt to drive a Nano Twist on his/her own in 43 locations in and around the Delhi/NCR region.
At present this service is only available in Delhi and the Nano Twist, with it’s tiny dimensions, easy driving characters and a frugal engine is sure to work well for the individual who doesn’t want to buy a car and then run around to service centers and face regular maintenance bills. The pricing for this service is Rs. 399 for a full day and Rs. 6999 for a month. The hourly lease rate is just Rs. 99.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Rajiv Kr Vij, Managing Director & CEO, Carzonrent (I) Ltd. said, “Being a thoroughly customer focused brand, we believe in creating exciting options for our consumers that are economical, convenient and easily available. MYLES CITY-DRIVE with NANO TWIST will provide the city commuters a license to drive, empowering them to do and enjoy everyday life a little more. 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.” He further added, “Our endeavor is to make Self Drive a conscious option for everyday commuters, which is not only beneficial for them but also for the city and its environment at large. Self-drive as a concept promotes car sharing or usage as per the need and is a greener and economical option than owing and maintaining a car. Our technological expertise also helps us keep a check on the vehicle, both in terms of engine and driver health, making it a safer and viable option. We believe this concept will change the way people look at city travel and in the long run, help address the traffic woes Delhi faces,” he added.
According to Mr. Deepankar Tiwari, Head – Institutional Sales, Tata Motors, ” The NANO TWIST is the perfect smart city car for zipping through Delhi-NCR. We are delighted to associate with Carzonrent and through this partnership we will reach out to a larger customer base and give them an opportunity to experience the awesome Nano in a self-drive avatar. After seeing success in countries like US, Canada, UK, Spain & Australia, Carzonrent have brought the MYLES CITY-DRIVE, a self-drive concept to the NCR region, which is very alluring and promising concept for Delhi citizens. We are happy to partner with them and be a part of a first in this growing segment.”
Back in 2013, Carzonrent began the MYLES programme which allows one to lease a car for a certain period of time and drive it around by their own. Currently, this service features cars from the Nano Twist, all the way to Mercedes-Benz. That’s quite some contrast then.
