The company has already distributed 700 VR headsets to its dealer network all across the country for customers to get the full metaverse showroom experience that they have denominated Arenaverse.

Shashank Srivastava, senior executive officer of Marketing at Maruti Suzuki, remarked on the importance of these new developments for the company.
Srivastava stated: “At Maruti Suzuki, we have ensured that our already strong digital journey is further fortified to suit the requirements of new-age customers. We have taken this digital journey a notch up, by bringing the country’s largest auto retail network Arena to the metaverse.”
