Encouraging to capture the streets, Zoomcar provided 10 women with 3 months’ free car subscription. While discussing the campaign, Zoomcar co-founder and CEO Moran said “Women play a vital role in all sectors of socio-economic development.
Nevertheless, their access ingress to private mobility has consistently been challenged, hence confining their progress and leading to numerous challenges. To the same end, on the celebration of the International Women’s Day, we have introduced the #SheDrives campaign to promote a woman’s access to private mobility. The campaign will label two critical features of private mobility for women, firstly, having a private vehicle and secondly, the skill to drive. To the same end, we are not supplying free subscription to cars under ZAP Subscribe but also promoting the driving motors fee for women drivers. Our formula is simple; #SheDrives her aspiration, #SheDrives motivation in the family, #SheDrives our world, to her mobility, is the key.”
