In terms of demand, the platform’s exponential growth is being triggered by both first time user acquisition and increasing the repeat user frequency across trip duration cohorts. On the supply side, ZAP subscribe has seen immense uptake since its launch last year and we will continue to invest in building brand awareness and consideration through ATL efforts and mass media campaigns.”

Zoomcar expects to substantially increase its B2C revenue and further solidify its market leadership by using his  diverse skill set across user growth, brand marketing, creating deep structured product partnerships and data analytics.”
