With an aim to provide a convenient option for intercity and intra-city travel, startup Revv delivers cars to your doorstep. Revv claims to be the world’s first 100 percent doorstep delivery self-driven car rental service. The company stresses on the fact that they have no excess kilometer charges or surge pricing.

Revv was started by Anupam Agarwal and Karan Jain, two professionals with a background of a decade each at McKinsey. It bets on the pure-play ‘doorstep delivery of cars’ business model. Started in May 2015, Revv started operating in July in Delhi with its first round of funding from Ananth Narayanan – CEO of Myntra, CEO of DEN Online, and more than 10 Directors and Partners from McKinsey.

Revv claims to be India’s first car rental company that offers a pricing plan for unlimited kilometers. On the technology front, besides the common vehicle location tracking and remote keyless entry/exit features in its cars, Revv is piloting a couple of technologies called Driver Behaviour Monitoring (DBM) and On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) of the vehicle’s real-time performance, which has significant bearing on user experience and vehicle safety, says the company.

With primary focus on SUVs and ultra-luxury cars, Revv’s portfolio of cars includes approximately 150 cars with 60 per cent SUVs, 10 per cent ultra-luxury, 30 per cent sedans and hatchbacks. The car delivery executives use a foldable electric scooter that fits in the boot of the car to get back to the parking hubs.

The services are currently available in Delhi NCR, Hyderabad and Bengaluru.
