Zoomcar Partners with ACKO Drive to increase car fleet – ET Auto

Existing Zoomcar Hosts can seamlessly upgrade their existing fleet to meet the surging demand for diverse vehicle options, the release said.

New Delhi: Zoomcar Holdings, Inc., a leading marketplace for self-drive car sharing, has partnered with ACKO Drive, a car buying platform by ACKO, to empower local Zoomcar Hosts to expand their car fleet.

With this partnership, ACKO Drive is offering Zoomcar Hosts substantial savings of up to INR 85,000 on new car purchases along with attractive offers on car financing with instant loan approval, express car delivery and more. This partnership allows Hosts to expand their business presence and significantly increase their earnings, the company said.

Zoomcar Hosts earned approximately USD 4 million according to Zoomcar’s Q3 2023 results, and are focused on making car hosting just as popular as car renting. ACKO Drive is pioneering the realm of online car purchases, helping customers enjoy the convenience of comparing models, selecting financing options, purchasing insurance, and accessing after-sales services, all in one convenient platform, the company said in a media release.

Through this collaboration, ACKO Drive will facilitate easier access to Zoomcar Hosts by extending exclusive offers, which will further enable them to increase their earnings potential from car sharing. The partnership presents a significant opportunity for both new and existing Zoomcar Hosts to build and elevate their business operations, which will help cater to evolving consumer preferences with newer car models, the release added.

Existing Zoomcar Hosts can seamlessly upgrade their existing fleet to meet the surging demand for diverse vehicle options. By embracing the latest models, Hosts can not only enhance their competitiveness but can also tap into the higher earning potential associated with newer and more attractive vehicles.

“We are focused on providing higher quality experiences to our guests, and one of the biggest unlocks for an unparalleled self-drive experience is providing newer and wider car options,” said Zoomcar CEO and Co-founder Greg Moran. “Zoomcar aims to significantly grow the car-sharing marketplace, encouraging more Hosts to join and grow with the platform, and our partnership with ACKO Drive will play a significant role in providing enhanced affordability and choice.”

Nitin Chadha, SVP, ACKO Drive, said, “Indians are exploring different ways of travel and experience, and Zoomcar Hosts fuels the passion in the individuals by providing a platform best suited for them. ACKO Drive specialises in the online car buying journey and with this partnership, we are confident that Zoomcar will enable the customers in utilising the car better that they own by hosting on the platform. Our association with Zoomcar is another step towards providing car enthusiasts the end-to-end support from ACKO Drive in their car buying journey with flexible financing options and suitable insurance solutions.”
