Kia Motors India on Thursday announced the launch of a complete contactless, paperless aftersales and personalised vehicle service for its customers, in view of safety concerns amid Covid-19.
This initiative entails an 'Advanced Pick and Drop' programme, ensuring highest customer safety with a no contact pick-up and drop service and live vehicle tracking in a completely paperless process, the company said.
Kia Motors India is also launching a new 'My Convenience' service initiative, which offers personalised vehicle maintenance to its customers.
With both these initiatives, the company said it aims to redefine the after-sales experience by personalising and digitising the service process to facilitate an enhanced user experience.
"These customer-centric ownership experience initiatives reiterate the brand's after-sales identity of 'Promise to Care' offering a seamless and hassle-free ownership experience," it added.
