In response to the current scenario when social distancing and contactless service is the new normal, auto dealers in the country are gearing up to roll out their online vehicle sales platforms to cater to the new-age consumers. These platforms will allow prospective customers to browse and explore vehicles, view suitable financing options, book test-drives, and so on. Here is a short selection of the available online sales platforms:
Tata Motors Nepal ‘Contact Less Services’: A Multi-Support Online Sales Portal
The first-of-its-kind digital sales platform in the Nepali automotive landscape will allow consumers to browse and explore Tata Motors’ passenger vehicles, request a test drive, submit loan documentation, and book vehicles online. The nominal booking amount of Rs 10,000 can be paid via mobile banking or Fonepay.
Once on the website, buyers will have to go through a four-step process to buy the car of their choice. The first step is to explore the range of Tata passenger cars in the market. Following this, they will have to select their preferred model, color, and variant, and pay the booking amount. After that, a sales representative will get back to the buyer and explain the available financing options to facilitate the buying process. The fourth and final step is to choose a preferred location for vehicle delivery.
HH Bajaj’s Online Sales Platform
HH Bajaj has announced a new initiative to make the buying processes easy for customers in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. The highest-selling two-wheeler brand in the country has officially revealed a new online platform to give its customers a future retail experience.
Customers can book a Bajaj motorcycle of their choice by simply logging on to the website. After the selection is made, the buyer has to pay a token amount of Rs 2,000 either through eSewa, FonePay, or Connect IPS. The amount will be reduced in the final price of the motorcycle. The platform also allows buyers to enquire about the product, browse specifications, and read reviews.
Moreover, the company has introduced a post-lockdown offer under which it’s providing a sure-shot cash discount of Rs 12,000, zero percent interest on 50 percent down payment, or 20 percent down-payment with interest charges, for new buyers.
TVS Online Sales Service Platform
Similarly, Jagdamba Motors Pvt. Ltd Nepal has launched an integrated online sales platform for all its bikes and scooters at tvsnepal.com/shop. Users can find all the purchase-related information on the site, which allows them a glimpse of the features, financial and other aspects of the vehicle, making the experience as transparent and real as possible. The system guides the customer in the buying process. The ordered vehicle will be delivered to customer address. Also, TVS is planning to operate its showroom and other service-center services in the near future by maintaining proper physical distancing.
