It is a unique way of driving the readership for the brand and of course build an informed consumer base for all automobile brands. Our biggest success will be to help the automobile sales grow more in Maharshtra and reduce the purchase decision making time by giving right information in an exciting manner to the potential buyers.”

He added,  “The product has been a runaway success with the readers. We are able to sell about 25000 copies more today across Maharashtra. All car marketers have welcomed this supplement. We recently renamed our circulation department as FAME which has vision of Following Audiences and Managing Engagement. The launch of Speedy is inspired with it.”
