With this, the company has reiterated its position as a pioneer of this online global ecosystem which empowers connectivity and enhances accessibility for customers. ARENAVerse will allow users to indulge in an immersive virtual experience with their favourite Maruti Suzuki vehicles. Furthermore, the launch of the platform also builds on the company’s commitment to providing a more interactive and immersive retail experience for tomorrow’s consumers.

Speaking on the introduction of ARENAVerse, Mr. Shashank Srivastava, Senior Executive Officer, Marketing & Sales, Maruti Suzuki India Limited, said: “At Maruti Suzuki, we have ensured that our already strong digital journey is further fortified to suit the requirements of new-age customers. We set the wheels of the metaverse in motion with NEXAverse which has been a resounding success, with over 10,000 bookings for the Grand Vitara coming from the NEXAverse alone. With ARENAVerse, we have taken this digital journey a notch up, by bringing the country’s largest auto retail network ARENA to the Metaverse and ensuring that our customers’ digital experiences are as personalised and dynamic as possible.”

This presents huge opportunities for us at MSIL to touch our most remote customers by integrating our technological innovation with our vast network across India. We are very excited about what the meta-universe has in store for us and how we navigate through it to bring the best of experiences for our customers.”
