Default re: Zoomcar's ZAP Car Leasing Programs

I got an offer from Just ride / driveezy. Their offer looks good on paper. I would like advise regarding this as an investment option to earn extra money. Attaching the excel sheet for reference. they promise the instalment amount as min guarantee. Thinking about exploring this option any advice would be helpfull.

I would suggest to get more information about the worst case scenario rather than best case. I gave up on the ZAP because of the very low guarantee.

The Excel you shared assumes mileage of the car as 17 km/l! I would suggest you to check the other figures as well. I have modified it a bit accounting for the correct fuel prices and a bit low booking scenario. Also I'm assuming the car will be registered as a tourist vehicle, in which case yearly tax is Rs. 10,000 (I pay 10k per car per renewal including agent fees).

In the last per month expense, I'm guessing that Just Ride pays you the car EMI + 4,000 + any earning. EMI will goto bank, so you end up with earning + 4,000 i.e appox Rs. 7,600 a month.

You must also account for maintenance charges, tyre expenses, misc charges like painting/denting etc. My WagonR CNG maintenance costs around Rs 0.5 per km run.

You are better off investing that amount elsewhere. Currently, incase of cars, the best investment would be to get a contract with a 5-star hotel, or a good company for minimum of 3 years on cars like Innova. The headache associated with it is simply not worth it. Unless you get an RoI of 15-20% per year, it is simply not worth it.

While I'm earning ok from my car in Uber, the car is running in 2 shifts for 6 days a week. I also use that car for family chores - going to office, airport drops for dad, etc which make the investment convenient for us. Its like having a car on call that pays for itself. Incase of Just Ride / Zoomcar, they are charging a lot of fees for just listing the car on their platform, you can get better rate of returns on other investments like mutual funds, etc.

Zoomcars has come up with a new Zoomcar Associate Program (ZAP) called ZAP Subscribe. Under this new scheme, the car would be owned by Zoomcars. The Associate has to provide just the parking space, facilitate bookings and also pay only the subscription fee. Zoomcar provides brand new cars under this scheme. You can subscribe a car for 6, 12 or 24 months depending on your need.

For Example, a Ford Figo 1.5 Trend variant would cost 19,999 + GST(12%) per month. There is absolutely no downpayment or finance charge except a nominal 2,100 rupees booking fee.

The insurance and service cost is also borne by the company.

They also provide a minimum guarantee of Rs. 10000 if the car is listed for atleast 20 days in a month including all weekends.

The Associate also gets to earn 75% of the revenue generated from each booking.

What are your thoughts on this? Will this be a cost effective model for folks who don't need a car all thru' the month?

ZAP has mostly negative reviews on facebook and on this quora article: https://www.quora.com/What-is-your-r...ociate-Program

So, I think they are yet to figure out how to run this program with respect to things as small as customer service. Till they do, it is a huge risk to invest any money on ZAP. It seems more a liability to me.

One alternative for monthly subscriptions is Revv Switch, anyone here experience it yet?

What if I buy a ZAP subscription for a car and dont put it on zooms listing at all and use it as my own. After 3 years give it back to zoom. What is the cost difference as opposed to buying my own on loan and then selling it after 3 years. I'm thinking about getting a Creta AT from ZAP which would be 32k per month.

That's 11.5 lakhs for 3 years' ownership. That too limited because they might have limit on no. of KM's.

Compare this to owning a creta diesel at for 3 years, your total cost of ownership is approximately 10 lakhs as per droom tco. This includes fuel, maintenance, depreciation and even a tyre change at the end of 3 years

Thanks for the link. Now I have a better picture.


So EMI at 42K per month for 3 years and down payment of 5L would get me a creta AT. All of this and the running expenses without fuel would be around 21.5L at the end of 3 years I guess.



With Zoom I would have spend around 13L with GST.



So with zoom I give the vehicle back after 3 years. With the other option I now have to sell the vehicle with odo reading 72000KM at 8.5L to break even.


Not sure if I'm calculating correctly

Default Zoomcar: 200 VW Polos on shared platform subscribed in 48 hrs

In June 2019, Zoomcar had partnered with Volkswagen to launch a shared subscription service. Within 48 hours of its launch, all 200 VW Polos of the first batch were subscribed.

The Trendline variant of the Polo petrol is reportedly available on the shared subscription platform. It is powered by a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder engine that produces 75 BHP and 95 Nm of torque.

Zoomcar's ZAP Subscribe offers monthly subscriptions for a tenure of 6-36 months. The subscriber is not required to pay any down payment, insurance or maintenance costs and gets 24x7 roadside assistance as well.

It is a good concept. Only thing is that in Delhi, only two models (e2O and Verna) are available. Some hatchback would have been good.

Well, the ZAP as per many isn't the profitable of investments. And I don't think the car is allotted to the subscriber post the tenure? Will be good to know who the enthusiasts were, college students?
