Avis India has launched a series of product enhancements to its self-drive fleet.

The company has ramped up its fleet size and introduced new variants in four segments: hatchback, sedan, multi-utility vehicles (MUVs), and sports utility vehicles (SUVs). The new fleet includes models from car manufacturers such as Hyundai, Honda, Toyota, Ford, Mahindra, Maruti, and Renault.

The self-drive service is now available in five major Indian cities, including Delhi, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Gurgaon, and Noida.

Additionally, Avis India provides the service of delivering and picked up vehicles from the customer with no additional cost, according to the company.

“The customer’s response to this recent revamp has been beyond our expectations,” said Sunil Gupta, managing director and CEO of Avis India. “We see this as a high growth area and are committed in investing in self-drive in India. Self-drive market has started to take a shape in India over the last couple of years. There are a few reasons for the growing popularity of self-drive in India like changing travel trends, improvement in infrastructure, technology, and financial benefits.”

Avis India, a joint venture between Avis Budget Group and The Oberoi Group, has 50 rental locations in 20 cities.
