Maruti widens subscription scheme offerings
Maruti Suzuki is offering its vehicles — the S-Cross, Ignis and Wagon-R — for subscription, wherein a customer can enjoy and drive a brand new vehicle for a fixed tenure on the payment of a monthly subscription charge.
The largest car maker had launched its subscription model — Maruti Suzuki Subscribe — in major cities such as Delhi-NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai, Chennai and Ahmedabad last year in July. On Wednesday, the company added the additional models under the existing Maruti Suzuki Subscribe offering.
The company has logged 5,000 enquiries for its subscription scheme till now.
“Subscription has become more affordable with the inclusion of the Wagon-R in the Maruti Suzuki Arena and the Ignis in the Nexa sales channels,” said a Maruti Suzuki spokesperson.
“Customers will pay an all-inclusive monthly subscription charge, starting Rs 12,722 for WagonR Lxi and Rs 13,772 for Ignis Sigma in Delhi (including taxes) for a tenure of 48 months,” he added.
Other models offered under the plan include the Swift, Dzire, Vitara Brezza and Ertiga, Baleno, Ciaz and XL6.
“The unique initiative allows a customer to use a brand new car without owning it. The customer needs to pay an all-inclusive monthly fee that covers maintenance, 24x7 roadside assistance and insurance for the complete tenure,” said the spokesperson.
