As part of its partnership with Uber Technologies, Tata Motors has delivered the first lot of 56 cars to Uber drivers in Bangalore. These deliveries have been made under the 'Tata Offer’, which lets drivers make a down payment of as low as Rs 30,000 and avail themselves of a fast funding process of seven to ten days. This offer is aimed at helping drivers become micro-entrepreneurs by buying their own cars, rather being dependent on an owner.
Cars such as the Indica and Indigo can be bought under this offer, along with flexible financing solutions from Tata Capital Financial Services and Tata Motors Finance. As of now, Tata Motors has delivered 31 Indicas and 25 Indigos to the drivers. They will also receive free accessories, GPS, external warranty and insurance as part of this offer.
Nakul Gupta, regional manager, PVBU, Tata Motors, said, “We are delighted to have partnered with Uber to deliver seamless solutions for drivers in Bangalore. Reiterating our commitment to our partnership, this initiative will help solve the problems faced by drivers at the time of buying a car, by removing hurdles and making the buying process as smooth and quick as possible.” Tata also claims that, with the enhancements in its service initiatives and increased focus on service infrastructure in Karnataka, the company has jumped to the No. 2 position in the Customer Service Index 2015 in Bangalore, with a score of 940 points.
Moving further in the taxi business, there are reports which suggest that the Bolt hatchback will soon be sold only as a commercial vehicle for taxi fleets. Private registration of the hatchback will no longer be an option. The Tata Bolt had failed to generate customer interest and, with the arrival of the Tiago at a lower cost, its sales would decline further.
