Revv, World’s First 100% Doorstep Delivery Self-drive Car Rental Service drives into Bangalore
Revv, the Delhi-NCR based self-drive car Rental Company has launched its operations in Bangalore with a fleet of over 100 cars across models starting from hatchbacks to sedans to luxury. Its unique hub-and-spoke operating model enables it to cater to every part of Bangalore, delivering and picking up every single booking right from customer’s doorstep. As a part of its geographical expansion in the Southern market, the company has launched its operations in Bangalore.
One of their first-of-its-kind innovations is “pure-play doorstep delivery of cars”, even for hourly rentals & Driver Behaviour Monitoring (DBM). To make this viable, they equip their delivery executives with a foldable electric scooter that fits in the boot of every car, and becomes a cost-effective, quick and environment-friendly way of getting back to the parking hubs. Revv had first pioneered this “pure-play doorstep delivery of cars” operating model in July 2015, and the same is being replicated by their older, larger rivals in various shapes and forms.
The company bets on a shift in consumer behavior towards adopting self-drive rentals for mainstream usage, owing to their very low cost and high convenience. Revv has completely re-worked the prevalent self-drive rental model. Already serving customers in Delhi-NCR, the company has witnessed repeat usage and positive customer feedback on their innovations in the region.
Revv was set up in July 2015 by Anupam Agarwal and Karan Jain, two ex-Associate Partners of McKinsey with a comprehensive background of a decade each, where they helped Fortune 500 clients on strategy and performance transformation.
Commenting on the Bangalore launch, Anupam Agarwal, Co-Founder & CEO of Revv said, “Although it is too early to comment, we have seen phenomenal customer adoption and a terrific response from the city, since our launch. Given this traction, we are continuously adding to our fleet. We see an enormous potential in the city and can easily envision it becoming a 500-1000 car market for us, within the next six months. We aim to establish self-drive car rentals as a highly affordable product catering to mass-market usage.”
Self-drive car rentals started out as an occasional-usage product in India, but today it has become pretty common to see self-drive car rentals being picked up by people for inter-city trips or for many intra-city work-related applications. They have even started becoming a practical substitute to owning a car. Through its aggressive expansion, Revv endeavors to popularize the notion of self-drive car rentals in India, and to make the market take-off through a product that mimics the privacy and convenience of one’s own car, while being the most affordable across all mobility options.
Presently running a 20% lower invitation price offer, Revv offers the most convenient & cheap option for commuters.
