“Aggregators, Meet The WagonR Cab.”
The way we use cabs has changed drastically in the last decade. There were days when getting a cab meant a ride to the airport or the railway station maybe. All in all, the frequency of cab usage wasn’t something extraordinary.
Cut to today, thanks to the beloved cab aggregators of our country, cab services have become a necessity. From radio taxis to tapping on an app on our mobile phones, we’ve surely come a long way.
This rise in frequency of cab usage meant that more people needed cabs, which meant more cabs, which meant more revenue. This entire pattern of change in the consumer behaviour might very well be the reason behind the WagonR cab coming into the scene.
The Maruti Trust
Didn’t we mention that? Well, it is somewhat obvious.
The WagonR brand has been here for around two decades now. While the WagonR has a brand reputation for itself, the backing of Maruti Suzuki just expedites the trust factor it holds.
This trust, confidence and reputation for a car brand is something unprecedented and hence has led to a huge demand for the Maruti WagonR and other vehicles.
