Revv, the Delhi-NCR based shared mobility platform, said it is launching its car sharing services in three new cities (Mumbai, Chennai and Jaipur), taking its national footprint to seven cities.
Chennai and Jaipur are live already and Mumbai is slated to go live later this month.
Each of the three cities is being launched at scale, with fleet size similar to what Revv has built up in other cities during the last 18 months.
All three cities get a brand new fleet, which includes hatchbacks, sedans and SUVs. The fleet has been curated to fit the needs of the customers, based on the demand pattern in these markets. Revv is already available in DelhiNCR, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Chandigarh.
Speaking on the development, the co-founders of Revv said, “Growing the national footprint is a natural part of building a national brand. Our experience suggests that a customer is more likely to stay with us if he knows that he can find Revv in every city that he or she might visit. Having a wide network also creates more flexibility in managing supply.”
“We are very excited about the prospects of serving customers in these new cities. Mumbai and Chennai have a strong local base. All 3 cities have high volumes of inbound traffic, for both work and leisure. In the 2 cities that have already gone live (Chennai and Jaipur), the early reception has been way beyond our expectations. In Chennai, the entire fleet was sold out within a day of going live,” they added.
This is the first time that Revv has launched 3 major cities in one shot, and plans to scale to 20-25 cities by the end of 2017.
