Mercedes-Benz India, in association with Carzonrent, today introduced a luxury self drive concept under the brand ‘Myles’. The association will initially offer C-Class & E-Class models of Mercedes-Benz in major metro cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Chennai. Carzonrent and Mercedes-Benz will also look at introducing other models of vehicles into the service, such as the SLK and AMG versions.
The Myles brand will have a fleet of over a 1000 cars in the next one year and grow to around 5000 cars in the next three years' time
The organised self-drive market has been growing exponentially over the last couple of years with better roads, higher costs of chauffeurs and availability of navigation facility.

We have always introduced newer products and services for the satisfaction of our customers. We believe both companies will benefit from this alliance in terms of consumer outreach.”

With the inclusion of the luxury models in our self-drive fleet, we want to propel people’s aspirations to experience luxury and live their passion by fulfilling their desire, “ said Rajiv Kr Vij, Managing Director & CEO, Carzonrent (I).
