Automovill - full-stack mobility start-up is all set to establish its footprint in Eastern and Central India. Having said that, the company has launched new workshops in cities namely Kolkata, Ranchi, Bhubaneshwar, Siliguri, Bhopal, and Indore. Furthermore, Automovill has rolled out the workshops on both models - Co-owned and Partnered. Besides this, the company has also partnered with 500 workshops and established 70 hubs across the country. Automovill further plans to strengthen its presence in over 20 cities in India with the new launch.
“There are many players that are only catering to the urban market. However, after testing waters, and getting good response in the tier 2 market, we decided to explore it further. We have already been getting an overwhelming response from some tier 2 cities in terms of a rising number of queries. Hence, upon thorough analysis we have decided to strengthen our foothold in the Easter and Central part of the country, with 80 % penetration in tier 2 cities itself,” as commented by Ramana Sambu, Co-Founder & CBO, Automovill.
