The ad would be booked for duration of one to six months, while the tariff would be in the range of Rs. 1,000 to Rs. 5,000 depending on the car, amount of space used, distance and areas covered.

The ads would be wrapped on the car printed on vinyl sheets. The company claims that its car wrap advertising model benefits both car owners and companies.
