Zoomcar, the self-driving car rental service provider, is reportedly in talks with investors to raise around ₹323 crore ($50 million) in its new funding round. As per the report, the company is in talks with existing as well as new investors. The money will be used to fund the company’s expansion plans.

Pedl service has been launched with about 500 bicycles across three cities – Bangalore, Chennai, and Kolkata. It plans to have bicycles at every 50 to 100 meters in the cities that it has established its presence. The company eventually plans on having at least 10,000 cycles on the road by the end of this year.
