MUMBAI (Reuters) - Indian ride-sharing service Ola has partnered with German carmaker BMW to strengthen its luxury mobility segment, the app-based taxi aggregator said on Monday.
The tie-up will allow Ola cab operators to avail cheaper credit to buy BMW cars, receive after-sales support and guaranteed buyback, Ola said in a statement.
BMW-certified instructors will also train drivers about auto safety systems and technology, the statement said.
The agreement follows Ola's partnership, announced last month, with India's top SUV maker, Mahindra & Mahindra.
BMW joins the ranks of other global automakers such as Volkswagen
