Customers are required to choose their preferred model and click on the ‘Book Now’ option followed by registration. They must then select their preferred dealership, variant and colour of the model. Once that’s done, the platform will display all the details thereby confirming the booking. Customers are then required to make the payment.

After the booking is confirmed, customers will receive an SMS and an email confirming the same.
