24 Oct 2015
Tata Motors on Friday announced the setting up of its first bus dealership, 'BusZone', offering a number of features.
The first dealership was formally inaugurated by Tata Motors executive director (commercial vehicle business) Ravi Pisharody at Arumbakkam near Chennai.
BusZone would be equipped with a dedicated bus display area, professional sales and service teams, customer lounge including wi-fi connectivity and other services.
The first facility is located on the Chennai-Bengaluru highway and has 12 bus bays, an effluent treatment plant and a service parking area.
"Through exclusive bus centres like BusZone, we at Tata Motors are addressing specific and growing requirements of the bus customer, a very important commercial vehicle customer segment by offering sales and service support exclusively for bus chassis and bus bodies," Pisharody said.
The company has roped in Janta Group of Companies, a player in automobile retail business, for the outlet.
"With an aggressive plan and a robust approach, we will further extend our services to other parts of the state in the coming months. While BusZone is first of its kind in Tamil Nadu, it will be followed by other geographies," he said.
BusZone will provide comprehensive sales, service and spares support to Tata Motors bus customers in Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram, Vellore, Tiruvannamalai, Villupuram and Cuddalore.
"We are extremely happy to be associated with Tata Motors, in bringing the company's first exclusive bus dealership to the Southern market," Janta Group of Companies CMD Rajinder Singh said.
BusZone will also provide various services like bus financing, highway assistance facility, loyalty programmes and full service contracts, the statement said.
