Remember 2011, when the Snapdeal listed Tata Indica for the online sales, a first time for such thing? Well, they have done it again with a good news and a bad news. The good news is that the booking amount is only Rs 20000 and the bad news is, that they are not throwing away any discounts this time around like they did it for Indica.
Snapdeal listing confirms that the launch is on 25th September both for online and in showroom sales. They have also listed a process as to how the delivery system will work. We appreciate Mahindra's initiation to choose e-commerce platform for the sales. They have become the second manufacturer to do so online after the Tata Motors. In a time when everyone is going online, this move from Mahindra will certainly inspire other manufacturers.

Snapdeal, an e-commerce giant was founded in 2010 by two Wharton and IIT Delhi graduates. The move to go online and choose an online platform for sales clearly shows the confidence manufacturer is having on the customers that are loyal enough to book the vehicle without a test drive.
