Last month, Zoomcar raised $24 million in Series B funding led by Ford Smart Mobility LLC with participation from existing investors Sequoia Capital, Nokia Growth Partners and Empire Angels. Zoomcar said it would use the funds for scaling its Zoomcar Associate Program (ZAP), the marketplace model and on technology. It will also target a fleet size of 25,000 cars across 25 cities by 2018 and add to its current airport offerings. The ZAP program will account for 75% of its overall vehicle inventory by early 2017.

The company launched the ZAP program in April this year which would allow Zoomcar’s users as well as other individuals buy one or more vehicles and lease them to Zoomcar and operate on a revenue sharing model. At the time, Greg Moran, co-founder and CEO of Zoomcar, told MediaNama that Zoomcar could scale this model to over 100,000 cars over the next 3 years. In July last year, Moran said that a majority of its cars were owned by the company, while the rest were attached from local operators.
