Over the past seven years we have not only emerged as India's leading used car company but have also contributed to the creation of a used car ecosystem by bridging wholesale and retail channels while leveraging physical and online infrastructure.

NCR is the biggest market and a strategically important one for the company. Aside from the metros, we have also been getting an excellent response from B and C category towns which is enabling us to expand faster. We are planning to close the year with 500 outlets and 1.5 lakh vehicle sales, both online and offline," said Dr Nagendra Palle, CEO, Mahindra First Choice Wheels.
