Starting with the Chevy beat, Ford figo (old model) to the Swift Dezire. I even saw some Ciaz with taxi board.
Now, hyundai has started selling a taxi version of the Xcent. In fact, now Xcent taxis are preferred over Etios due to lower initial cost.
Self-drive cars like Zoomcars, Myles etc have Honda city, XUV 5oo, Toyota fortuner, Mercedes A Class, BMW 3 Series, Mercedes GLA, Mercedes CLA among the rentals.
This has not made private buyers shy away from buying these car models.
So nothing is really exclusive or premium any more in India.
Why is the poor Etios alone being targeted?
