Redefining vehicle ownership

PumPumPum claims to be growing 200% year over year and has redefined vehicle ownership by offering on-demand access to aspirational cars, revolutionizing the pre-owned automotive industry.

Vinay Bansal, Co-Founder, Inflection Point Ventures, said, “India is now a country with the highest population, the biggest need one has after roti kapda aur makaan is transportation. Two-wheeler for a bachelor and 4-wheeler for a family is not a convenience but a necessity. However, only about 8% of Indian households (approximately 1 in 12) own cars. Hence the notion of leasing out pre-owned cars is bound to succeed. And Pumpumpum is category creator and leader, in the market of leasing pre-owned cars''.
